Focke-Wulf Fw 44
Model Scale 1:30
The Focke-Wulf Fw 61 is often considered the first practical, functional helicopter, first flown in 1936. It was also known as the Fa 61, as Focke began a new company—Focke-Achgelis—after development had begun.
The airframe was based on that of a well-tried training aircraft, the Focke-Wulf Fw 44 Stieglitz.
