VW2 Helicopter

Fail safe helicopter perhaps. Dual engines and no rear tail boom rotor.

WHAT CAN GO WRONG? :lol:

Eight cylinders for about 80 horsepower
For me that sounds about right

With the power from a VW engine it would not even get off the ground with only one engine installed :lol:

Well, these little noise/widow makers can also not fly with one motor when it stops. I guess most fall out of the sky if motor fails . :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: I would rethink that comment. :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

I actually meant it would not get airborne with the weight of one engine even if it had the power of both engines.

<twin beetle engines! Must have weighed a ton>

This is kind of a silly remark from the point of view that Volkswagen engines are comparatively <light> for a four-cylinder internal combustion engine! :o

Perhaps each engine may be possibly used per blade set to obtain the contra rotating movement.

No remark is silly when I see something like this. :lol: :lol: :lol:
