Congratulations to SRS Inc. and Rotorcraft Research Group at Carleton University: Construction of the whirl-tower and its first shakedown test took place on January 26, 2011. It took just a matter of days before the whirl-tower was taken to its full speed – rotating SRS Inc.’s scaled down helicopter blade at 1550 RPM, and thereby creating 0.52 Mach at the tip of the blade. Please see a video of this test below:
