  • Cycloidial Propulsion for Vertical Airships

  • Cycloidial propulsion (cyclorotor, cycloidal rotor, cycloidal propeller or cyclogiro) is the perfed fit for vertical airship frames. The low-speed and instant vector change features of cycloidial propellers offer everything an airship pilot would need to accurately pilot an airship under extreme conditions.
