"Cyclo Rotor Mono Wing Spin Launcher"
« on: December 17, 2021, 02:14:43 PM »
This thread spun off the "Chimborzo Spinlauncher" thread. A 3 blade carousel with satellite payloads on the rim could spin up to helocopter speed on the ground, fly to altitude then speed up again from on board jets and release a series of Starlink satellites for the internet.

The 3.blade propeller can spin up on the end of the mono wing "Cyclo Rotor" and release with 2 vector forces. The 3 blade propeller can feather until launch!

The mono wing can carry a compressed air supply with two jets to spin up the wing for launch and the 3 blade rim rocket in the rotor bay!

The rocket is positioned in the hub of the tri rotor. The wing is pressurized with compressed air. The battery for The Cyclo rotor is inertialy centered. The rotor locks and the blades guide for the spin launch acceleration from air jets at the ends. The compressed air spins the tri copter and rocket hub up inside rim of the cycloidal wing. The tri copter returns to the launch site after the 3rd stage rocket blasts through the center of the 2nd stage rotor.


The battery powers the spinning wing. The compressed air accelerates the wing and tri copter for spin launch and the rocket and payload blast out from the hub of the Tri copter which returns along with the mono wing.

The phase change pressure of liquid CO2 could drive these things
I know i know it sounds like we’re dumping raw CO2 into the air….
But the CO2 was directly harvested so it is technically carbon neutral




And we can get it at very low cost.
Just drop a chunk of dry ice into a gatorade bottle

Not sure the size of the tank required,
But it may also be feasible to launch using
steam

Here's a 3D printed mono wing rocket.

Storing rocket propellant in the Monocopter wing that glides back like a "Maple Seed" would be very cheap to launch and operate compared to the two stage piggyback style rockets. The supreme advantage would be the vacuity of high altitude for a Mach speed spin launch from the ground return fuel . After ascending by highly efficient lift copter, the centrifugal force from a high speed ground fuel source spin would send the payload and return rocket to space. 

The bulky Hydrogen tank from the Space Shuttle burned up in the atmosphere. Shaped like a "Whirligig" it could glide safely back to Earth.
