The OMH-Eagle Ultralight Helicopter
Did you ever want to fly a helicopter? This easy to build one man home built helicopter can be made from standard parts that are available from your local hardware and auto parts store. Best of all, if you buy everything on the parts list, it will cost you less than a total of $500.00 (if you build the rotors, rotor head, and engines, yourself). No license is required to fly the helicopter; it weights less than 225 pounds, so it falls in the ultralight flight category that requires no pilot’s license. The OMH-Eagle ultralight heli uses two, specially-designed, jet powered, easy to build, engines mounted on the tips of the rotors. Starts with a push of a button, foot controls for the rudder, and has a motorcycle style handlebar controls for the rotors. This helicopter is very customizable and easy to build. Different people have built different variations. Visit the links page, for links to different builder sites.
EDITORS NOTE: In the hands of the novice, we would definitely classify this heli as a “death trap.” Make sure you read our disclaimer and understand it before buying/building. If you do manage to get this helicopter off the ground (which is highly unlikely) you do so at your own risk. These plans may not be 100% complete, and we don’t think that the tipjet engine design is very well engineered. It would be better to use the “Gluhareff tipjet engine.”
