Why is the Phenix Ultra 2XL a Coaxial rotor system?
Phenix Ultra 2XL coaxial rotor system offers many advantages over a quadcopter or a traditional helicopter design in both safety and performance. The Phenix Phenix Ultra 2XL replaced the fuel thirsty quad engine prototype but is achieving better payload results with much greater range, stability, and hover performance. The Phenix Ultra 2XL utilizes an optimized 24’ Coaxial Rotor System producing a 30% increase in lift over traditional designs as the coaxial blades avoid the effects of dissymmetry of lift. Also, the coaxial system eliminates the need for a tail rotor which can contribute to rotorcraft accidents such as tail strikes. In maximizing performance for our customers, the Phenix Ultra 2XL delivers increased stability, maneuverability and affords a smaller aircraft footprint. The coaxial rotor system we developed for the Phenix Ultra 2XL has a better power to weight ratio, more significant lifting, and more efficiency over traditional designs and aircraft configurations. Lower Maintenance Costs, The Phenix Ultra 2XL leverages a “Zero Maintenance” virtual bearing that significantly reduces required maintenance of the rotor hub and assemblies.
