Teasdale-Buckell Helicopter

  The Teasdale-Buckell Helicopter was built during 1910 and was fitted with a 30 h.p. engine. Basically a small high-wing canard monoplane, with vertical panels below the wing-tips and intermediately, it obtained direct lift from a pair of rotating "helix-planes", which comprised inclined helical planes arranged cylindrically and mounted on the propeller shafts. These "helix-planes" were driven by chains from the central engine. The propellers were of special design, based on Sir John Thorneycroft's marine experiments. The machine was claimed to have lifted vertically during tests. Span, 14 ft. Length, 18 ft. Wing area, 166 sq. ft. Estimated maximum speed, 70 m.p.h. Weight empty, 500 lb.
