DESIGN:SynchroLite ~ Power Train (for 1 engine) - Assembly - Layout - Belt Primary & 4 Gears - Idea (9)
Note that 1116 will not work because the gears interact with the tail boom.
Potential Problems or Required Modifications:
May still not be strong enough if engine and other rotor both want to drive one of the pinions.
A thought ~ the 'lump' in the fuselage for the large sheave might be matched by a 'lump on the other side for the pivot and linkage for the collective lever.
Only 4 gears and 2 sheaves.
Power Train Components:Will eventually be moved to seperate pages,
Engine - Gas - 2-stroke - Hirth 3-cylinder 3701
80 hp de-rated to 67 hp.
100% RRPM = 4000 engine rpm
Alternative: May want to consider the Zanzottera MZ 301;
For V-belts to have slippage for engagement clutch.
Power Train - Reduction - Primary - Belt Drive - Poly-V0586
Movable flat face pulley running against the back of the belts, on the T-2 side, and increasing the wrap around the small sheave.
Located in large sheave.
Primary (belt) 2.2:1
Secondary (gears) 3:1
Total reduction 6.6:1
Engine 4000 rpm
Rotors 606 rpm
Rotational Shock: (torsional vibration)
Handled by masts and possibly V-belt.
