G-1 is likely the world's simplest,
least expensive and most popular homebuilt helicopter. It is also tiny and extremely portable. The Construction Manual
provides technical drawings, with parts and materials lists, for building the
Compcop G-1 in a home workshop. The components
can be built at home, including the rotor blades. The G-1 qualifies
as an ultralight and can be flown without a license. (NOTE: For those seeking a more practical and more sophisticated homebuilt helicopter, please
see the Vortech plans for the A/W-95, Aeros, Choppy, Skylark, Scorpion or HRH helicopters. The G-1s control system is minimal; also, this craft will not autorotate.)
The Kestrel is a single-seat
ultralight helicopter powered by small jet engines mounted on the tips
of the rotorblades. This form of power eliminates the need for a tail rotor,
simplifying and reducing the cost of construction.
