Serious question: Anyone know ppl in desh interested in building rotor drones (capable of hovering)? Evil 6th coujin looking for ppl to try out package delivery bijnej, village to urban and back. Will help coordinate with ppl who need the business. May or may not have useful technology/niche capabilities to contribute, will at least compare notes on performance etc.

Totally civilian peaceful application onlee. No $$ to offer, but can guide perhaps to ppl who may have a few paise in desh.

Anyways, Dual engine configuration with single output shaft will be quite easier to get the economy and safety. And here you can use 4-Stroke Single cylinder engine with oil-cooled configuration, This will give you enough endurance, output power , economic and safer solution.

Other solution is :

At 88 pounds, the 3-cylinder engine is light enough to hold in your arms.

Nissan calls it the DIG-T R
Nissan’s managed to build a wee little engine that puts out a stunning 400 horsepower with just three cylinders.

Can we source from Cheen?

https://m.alibaba.com/product/60437925177/Chinese-manufacturer-WP7-270-WP6-245.html?spm=a2706.7843667.1998817009.12.OY2O5M

WP6 and WP7 light aircraft engines on Alibaba.

Plastic and fiberglass shaping and molding firms are even easier to contact since a lot of American startups and SMEs use Cheen eco-dystem to build prototypes for practically everything from mouse traps and toasters to small cars and aircraft.

Interesting thread, if a bit slow. Tandav, Rotax is not certificated as a typical manned aircraft engine. In fact their manuals say that you should assume they can fail any time and should plan accordingly. Use of certificated engines is not needed for experimentals and certainly not for military unmanned aircraft. That said, it's hard to beat Rotax. Forced by their wallets, even diehard Conti/Lycoming loving rednecks have come around to that fact.

I was thinking of a drone like V22-osprey which can have both hover,vertical take off and quick dash with a fixed wing.

Ramana:
The Jaguar engine upgrade plan gives 240 Adour engines
Create a program based on that using Nirbhaya components: navigation etc. But use a airplane platform.

Seriously. Civilian entities in Ulan Bator seriously interested in desh-based ppl who want to build rotor UAVs for totally halal civilian bijnej purposes onlee. Serious enquiries only pls. Must be willing to build and operate own UAVs (OK. buy first one from cheen like everyone else if needed). First step will be a telecon to discuss process, bijnej plan etc. Also anyone interested in pursuing the declared intent of GOI to open up retail commercial drone market. Also, ppl who want to learn and get certified as operators.

I know someone who for years has been quietly exporting drone engines widely abroad to the tune of $ millions- even the Chins are buying his stuff, while our great zeros hum and haw.He is scornful of the DRDO- "all talk".Once exhibited his tech at Aero-India.The irony is that one country who has allegedly bought it ,has exported drones to us.
