We are making progress on the new duct for the 3m rotor thanks to the great efforts of Tom and his team at Empire Fiberglass Products Inc.! Thanks folks! Looking good!
This is the core plug for the mold. Once the surfaces finished they will then create the mold from which the ducts will be made.
DTI is happy to announce a collaboration with Vistex Composites (http://www.vistexcomposites.com ) out of Schenectady, NY to develop and manufacture a composite rotor blade and hub system for us!
