Abstract:

This report gives the operator of the Hewlett-Packard HP-41 handheld calculator the ability to quickly and accurately determine the power requirements of a helicopter in the preliminary design phase. These power requirements are computed for three landing gear configurations skid, fixed wheel, and retractable wheel. By comparing the power required for each configuration, the user can determine the optimum landing gear for the design. Author
