Already long before the ArrowCopter saw the light of day we put it through its paces. Using sophisticated Finite Element Analysis running on heavy computing workstations we simulated the highest loads under the worst conditions to make sure nothing breaks when it shouldn’t. You will find safety in the sculpted Carbon Fiber / Kevlar seats, or in the outboard fuel tanks. Or in the superior strength of the double Carbon Fiber shell protecting pilot and passenger. Or in the wide stance of the ArrowCopter’s main gear. In fact, you won’t find a single item which we didn’t engineer with uncompromising safety first and foremost in our minds.
The technical standard, equipment features as well as optical style clearly aim the ArrowCopter gyroplane at the premium class of ultra- and microlight gyrocopters. It owes much of its outstanding performance to a meticulous five year development phase at FD-Composites GmbH.
