Helicopters are great for hovering, surveillance and landing in tight spots but when it comes to speed, they are usually sniggered at by pilots of 'proper' airplanes. Their smiles are about to fade once they are overtaken by Eurocopter's X3 helicopter. The X3 utilizes a standard Eurocopter helicopter airframe equipped with two turboshaft engines that power a five-blade main rotor system. Two additional propellers installed on short-span fixed wings not only add to the impressive appearance of the demonstrator but also its speed. The hybrid configuration offers the full hover flight capabilities of a helicopter and the speed of a turboprop-powered aircraft at more than 400 kilometres per hour.
