  2. 2. The Nymbus 650 project was the result of a licensing agreement between CUVR andThe Nymbus 650 project was the result of a licensing agreement between CUVR and Gary Gress of Gress Aerospace and the University of Calgary. Gress has been studying and experimenting with Gyroscopic Birotors for over a decade. Gary Gress is a holder of a US Patent (Patent number: 6719244). Patent title: VTOLGary Gress is a holder of a US Patent (Patent number: 6719244). Patent title: VTOL aircraft control using opposed tilting of its dual propellers or fans The patent covers the use of the propellers as gyroscopes for controlling the aircraft in pitch. A component of their tilting is in the sideways or lateral direction, and it is this component that generates gyroscopic pitch controldirection, and it is this component that generates gyroscopic pitch control moments. The control method is identical to that used in the International Space Station and the Hubble Space Telescope, in which pairs of CMGs (control moment gyroscopes) tilt The control method is identical to that used in the International Space Station and the Hubble Space Telescope, in which pairs of CMGs (control moment gyroscopes) tilt toward or way from one another to change the satellite's (pitch) attitude in space. Without this method (i.e., if you were just tilting the props fore and aft forWithout this method (i.e., if you were just tilting the props fore and aft for conventional thrust vectoring) its difficult to have a stable bicopter. You would have to have very light props and a low aircraft center of gravity just to be marginally stable. COPYRIGHT 2015 ALL RIGHTS RESERVED

  4. 4. The Nymbus 650 is an VTOL birotor of comparable size and payload capabilitiesThe Nymbus 650 is an VTOL birotor of comparable size and payload capabilities to a 600-class R/C model helicopter but without the liability, complex mechanics and noise associated with a large rotor. It is an Oblique-Tilting Birotor Aircraft. The Nymbus 650 is currently designed as a hobbyist R/C aircraft for prototyping and testing COPYRIGHT 2015 ALL RIGHTS RESERVED
