Eurocopter X3

Image Description

The Eurocopter X3 is an experimental compound helicopter under development by Eurocopter and is seen here demonstrating at the 2011 Paris Air Show.
The X3 is designed to cruise at 220 knots–about 50 percent faster than today’s medium twins. F-ZXXX looks very much like a Dauphin, with two short wings and two propellers in tractor configuration. A conventional empennage replaces the tail rotor. Under the cowlings, the main gearbox has been adapted from that of the in-development EC175 medium twin; two drives have been added for the propellers.
