I AGREE !!!! Even Bell took their Helicopter word away from their new products and business name. Everything is becoming a 'Vertical Flight' world, so as to allow for machines to be developed by them that don't fit in the 'helicopter' designation.
Kopter just seems hard to say in a sentence if you are an average punter. Ummmm "I'm just going for a fly in the Kopter Helicopter!" ...........someone will think you've said it twice

Hello 9Aplus,
Given the material and human resources involved in the project, crossing your fingers is not realy necessary ! :

Hello 9Aplus 🙂

The Prototype number 4 has just received an Arriel 2K (Leonardo has decided to go Safran) and the final Prototype number 5 should fly this year.

609 is a totally different story and if the regulations for it were already sorted out by FAA, it would be certified. Can't certify an aircraft that doesn't have regulations written for it yet!

09 seems to be getting there. People don't like them leaving the HTS900 for the Arriel but the 900 is having many problems. Partiuclarly with spares and support.

SW04 was different again. Mods to FAA certify it were all done on STC, an STC not owned by Leonardo. It all got out of control so Leo pulled the plug on the whole project. It really was butt ugly. I'm glad it never made it through.

I just came across a brochure one of my colleagues passed on to me some years back, perhaps after returning from the Avalon airshow. Thought I would scan it and post here realising that more current info is probably provided on the Kopter website than this "Preliminary Technical Data".

It was also interesting to note that for HB-ZXB on cover of brochure, the horizontal stabiliser hangs below the tail boom, just as on Bell 505 and now also R44 and R66. But on side profile on reverse of brochure, the stabiliser is more integrated with the tail boom. I can see that is also the case on HB-ZXC, their third prototype. I wonder if that change in stabiliser attachment arrangement was always planned?
