Wagner ROTOCAR III-EN

Wagner ROTOCAR III

The Wagner “Rotocar” was an experiment to combine a helicopter and a car. Intended price about 50 % lower than that of other helicopters. The helicopter was additionally equipped with a 250-ccm engine from a “Goggomobil” car for driving on the road (60 km/h). There was only one prototype, which has been flight-tested.

The first five designs evolved by Alfred Vogt of the Helicopter Technik Wagner since the company’s formation in 1960 included two experimental helicopters, each powered by a 95 hp rotary engine. One was a simple 2-seater with a skid undercarriage and pod-shaped body; the other was the Rotocar III “roadable” helicopter.
