An aerospace company reintroduced its precision helicopter with two crossing motors
The Kaman K-MAX has intermeshing rotors eliminating the need for a tail rotor. These opposite-spinning rotors lend the K-MAX a natural tendency to hover, making it more stable. The K-MAX is ideal for precision lifting and placing; it's valuable to firefighters, construction firms, and the military. Following is a transcript of the video.
