DESIGN: AeroVantage ~ Transition Mechanism - Proposed Methods (scale) - 2x4 1/8-scale of 1626
NO GOOD. THE DISK IS TILTED BACKWARD WHEN THE X-SHAVT HAS ROTATED 150-DEG FROM CRUISE
THERE IS NOTHING (YET) TO STOP OVER TRAVEL ON THE FORWARD ARM WHEN IN THE HOVER POSITION.
The idea was to have the proprotor & motor (wrist) rotate at 1/2 the angle of the shoulder's rotation. The above drawing has the wrist rotation at 1/2 the angle of the elbow.
