Gluhareff MEG-1X

(1956)


Eugene Gluhareff established a development company in 1952 to carry out research into pressure-jet powered
light helicopters. He built the MEG-1X personal strap-on helicopter rig which used a single-blade rotor with a tip-
mounted G8-2 engine and followed this with the MEG-2X which had a two-blade rotor. His final design was the MEG-3X which was based on a dish-shaped platform on which the pilot would stand and a two-blade rotor revolving underneath the platform. No commercial development was undertaken.

Take-off weight: 104kg, max speed: 88.5km/h, hovering ceiling: 1500m, endurance: 14-18min.
