Title: DISTRIBUTED ELECTRIC PROPULSION SYSTEM AND VERTICAL TAKE-OFF AND LANDING AIRCRAFT
Abstract:
The present invention relates to a distributed electric propulsion system and vertical take-off and landing ("VTOL") aircraft and especially to this having hybrid or electric drive, used to transport people or goods from one point to the other without the necessity of airport runways. A vertical take-off and landing aircraft (60) utilizes a distributed electric propulsion system (61) comprising at least two propellers with total vectoring (62) located at the ends of two fixed wings (63), the wings (63) being mounted on one side and the other of an fuselage (64). Each propeller with total vectoring 62 is driven in rotation motion by a shaft (68) and by an actuator. The three main operating modes of the aircraft (60), respectively vertical, transition and forward flight, are achieved by inclined in different positions the propellers with total vectoring (62).
