DARPA's robotic landing gear for helicopters

The helicopter is more advantageous in terms of takeoffs or landings because it does not need a large place like an ordinary aircraft but on the one hand, the helicopter had problems with takeoffs or landings where the place should be flat.

DARPA has just demonstrated a helicopter that has been modified its leg with the robotic landing gear in an unmanned flight near Atlanta, Georgia, that's designed to overcome these limitations by enabling landings on broken or uneven terrain with a high degree of safety.

By making the foot robot in a helicopter where each leg to adjust automatically so that the helicopter can remain in a state of flat, will automatically helicopter can land in any kind of an uneven foundation.
The robotic landing gear can make the helicopter could have landed on the terrain with a slope till 20 degrees. The helicopter robotic landing gear developed by the Georgia Institute of Technology, funded by DARPA. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | DARPA | GIZMAG]
