Calidus


I've been working with Thomas Kreitler, author of the rotor code in JSBSim, to add some things that will make autogyros possible, so here is the start of the first autogyro for JSBSim/FlightGear. This is the Calidus, a 500 kg MTOW aircraft, with an 8.4m rotor, powered by a Rotax engine spinning a 172cm propeller. More on the real Calidus here.
