Vortelator Kits

Check up to five results to perform an action.

Vortelator Kit placed at certain critical locations, the vortelator kit will cause the boundary layer to stay attached to flying surfaces for a greater distance, and keep the boundary layer thinner. Net result of these two actions is that it reduces both the profile drag and skin friction drag components of the parasite drag. The wake behind the aircraft will be smaller, requiring less horsepower to propel the aircraft through the air. Homebuilt Vortelator Kit increases aircraft speed by 4 to 7.5 mph. Delineates a procedure for determining where vortelators should be placed on an aircraft, for increased speed, by visualizing surface flow through simple flight tests at straight and level flight at cruising speed. Kit contains 100 ft of vortelator with instructions as to how and where to place.
