http://img337.imageshack.us/img337/5611/helioshc2.th.jpg (http://img337.imageshack.us/my.php?image=helioshc2.jpg)

Aircraft Description

The Helios Prototype is an ultra-lightweight flying wing aircraft with a wingspan of 247 feet, longer than the wingspans of the U.S. Air Force C-5 military transport (222 feet) or the Boeing 747 commercial jetliner (195 or 215 feet, depending on the model), the two largest operational aircraft in the United States. The electrically powered Helios is constructed mostly of composite materials such as carbon fiber, graphite epoxy, Kevlar®, styrofoam, and a thin, transparent plastic skin. The main tubular wing spar is made of carbon fiber. The spar, which is thicker on the top and bottom to absorb the constant bending motions that occur during flight, is also wrapped with Nomex® and Kevlar for additional strength. The wing ribs are also made of epoxy and carbon fiber. Shaped styrofoam is used for the wing's leading edge and a durable clear plastic film covers the entire wing.

The Helios Prototype shares the same eight-foot wing chord (distance from leading to trailing edge) as its Pathfinder and Centurion predecessors. The 247-foot wingspan gives the Helios Prototype an aspect ratio of almost 31 to 1. The wing thickness is the same from tip to tip, 11.5 inches or 12 percent of the chord, and it has no taper or sweep. The outer panels have a built-in 10-degree dihedral (upsweep) to give the aircraft more lateral stability. A slight upward twist at the tips of the trailing edge helps prevent wingtip stalls during the slow landings and turns. The wing area is 1,976 sq. ft., which gives the craft a maximum wing loading of only 0.81 lb./sq. ft. when flying at a gross weight of 1,600 lb.

The all-wing aircraft is assembled in six sections, each about 41 feet long. An underwing pod is attached at each panel joint to carry the landing gear, the battery power system, flight control computers, and data instrumentation. The five aerodynamically shaped pods are made mostly of the same materials as the wing itself, with the exception of the transparent wing covering. Two wheels on each pod make up the fixed landing gear—rugged mountain bike wheels on the rear and smaller scooter wheels on the front.

The Helios Prototype is powered by 14 brushless direct-current electric motors mounted across the wing's entire span. The motors are rated at 2 hp. (1.5 kW) each, and drive lightweight two-blade propellers of 79-inch diameter. The propellers are made from advanced composite materials and a laminar-flow design for efficiency at high altitudes.

The cruising speed of Helios ranges from 19 to 27 mph, with takeoff and landing equating to the average speed of a bicycle.

MARTIN XB-48

The Martin XB-48 (Martin Model 223) was the last of four designs (XB-45, XB-46, XB-47, XB-48) evaluated by the Army Air Force for a 1944 all-jet bomber requirement. The following description is from a June 1947 press release issued by the Glenn L. Martin Public Relations Department:

" ... the six-jet Martin XB-48, newest Army Air Forces high speed jet bomber made its initial flight Sunday (22 June 1947) from the Glenn L. Martin Company airport in Baltimore to the Patuxent River (Maryland) Naval Air Station, remaining aloft 37 minutes. Powered by six General Electric J-35 gas turbine engines housed three in each wing, the Martin XB-48 has a speed of over 480 miles per hour and carries a bomb load of more than 10 tons. It employs a new type "bicycle" landing gear, because of the difficulty of retracting heavy gears into extremely thin wings required for high speeds.
Two pairs of main wheels are located tandem-style under the fuselage, and two smaller "outrigger" wheels farther out under the wing, to give stability during ground operations. The large main gear folds into the fuselage and the smaller wheels retract into the wings."

The tandem landing gear arrangement was initially tested on the Martin XB-26H, a modified B-26 with the basic tandem main landing gear with outriggers arrangement.

Because of the urgency of the jet bomber requirement, the two four-engine bombers competed against each other (XB-45 and XB-46) for an immediate production contract. The XB-45 won this competition. The XB-48 lost to the Boeing XB-47 in a performance fly-off of the two six-engine bombers. The XB-47 with its swept wing had much better performance. Only two prototype XB-48s were completed for flight testing before the entire program was canceled.

Tarrant Tabor

With its 40m wingspan and an all-up-weight of 20280kg, design of the six 450hp Napier Lion-powered Tarrant Tabor began in the latter stages of World War I. It was intended to carry a 700kg bombload to Berlin from an English airfield. Estimated to have had a top level speed of 170km/h, F 1765, the sole example of the Tabor built, was readied for its maiden flight from the Royal Aircraft Establishment at Farnborough on 26 May, 1919. The pilot and co-pilot selected to make the flight were Captains F.G. Dunn and P.T. Rawlings. For whatever reason, it was decided that the first take-off run would be attempted with only the lower four engines at full throttle. However, as the colossal machine rolled across the airfield, the pilots brought both of the upper engines to full power, causing the aircraft to nose over into the ground and to inflict fatal injuries on both men.

Yes. We may even take up a collection so you can get the Discovery Channel. There was a show on last month about the An-225. You would have enjoyed it. :)

Fail shuttle only has 5 in total, three main and two manuveribilty thrusters.

I guess you could count the two solid rocket boosters. But wouldn't that make it 7? not 6 lol

LOL! You fail buddy! rofl


If you'd kept that thought process in your head, rather than putting it in your post we'd never have known though.


Pay attention to the thread, posts like this....

This is a thread for all aircraft with more than 5 engines.
Im talking about the really big ones.

...and this, are actually important to the direction the thread takes.


Do maneuvering thrusters count?

according to me, an "engine" is anything that provides force to move the plane.

Cool. It'll repeat. I think it was called "Massive Machines" hosted by Chris Barry. Keep an eye out for it.

Well, it seems majority of planes with 5 or more engines have been mentioned already DW58. I'll take the freedom to post of pics of really big aircraft with less than five engines now...





The topic of this thread is quite clear!

14 brushless electric motors.

The Helios Prototype is powered by 14 brushless direct-current electric motors mounted across the wing's entire span. The motors are rated at 2 hp. (1.5 kW) each, and drive lightweight two-blade propellers of 79-inch diameter. The propellers are made from advanced composite materials and a laminar-flow design for efficiency at high altitudes.

It flew first in 1942 (Vichy France), and it was used after WWII shortly for transatlantic travel.

six engines or more pleaseIt seems pretty clear to me.


Where I come from "more than 5 engines" would mean "6 engines or more."

Unless of course you have a picture of an aircraft with 5 1/8th engines (or something) it means 6 or more. :roll:

Whitteman-Lewis NBL-1 Barling Bomber with 6 engines, 1923.

Four engines were pulling and two pushing, and it was very poor aircraft, and it never entered mass production.


Little flying was done after its maiden flight on August 22, 1923, however, because when officials in Washington requested that it be flown a mere 400 miles from Dayton, Ohio, to the capital for exhibition purposes, the bomber was unable to climb high enough to clear the Appalachian Mountains. After lying in disrepair for five years, the Barling was surreptiously destroyed in 1928 at the order of General H. H. Arnold so that no public outcry would be made over the million-dollar waste of taxpayer's money.
