Eurocopter X3 vs Sikorsky X2: The Battle Of World’s Best Helicopters
Sikorsky Aircraft Corporation has unveiled a hybrid helicopter which can reach up to 250 knots per hour in the first week of the month. Eurocopter SA didn’t take this for granted and it has revealed a hybrid helicoper of its own called Eurocopter X3 and that can reach a top speed of 220 knots per hours.
The Eurocopter X3 is not faster than the Sikorsky X2, but the company says their chopper is better because it can take-off like a regular helicopter, but it can fly like a plane. The company’s CEO also added that the propulsion is provided by a couple of turbo propellers which can be found on the helicopter’s wings.
The Eurocopter X3 is not my favorite when compared with the Sikorsky X2 because the latter flies faster than the former, and I don’t really understand why Eurocopter named it “X3″ when Sikorsky unveiled another helicopter before them and called it “X2.”
