OH-58D/AVX Kiowa Warrior

About AVX
Founded in 2005, and headquartered in Fort Worth, Texas, AVX Aircraft Company employs helicopter industry veterans and executives with a combined experience of over 400 years across a spectrum of skill sets. AVX has developed and has patented a unique compound helicopter configuration with coaxial rotors and dual ducted fans that combines proven technologies to achieve greater aerodynamic efficiency, speed, range, fuel efficiency, HOGE and utility than conventional helicopters.

AVX has completed the preliminary design of several aircraft and is currently working with leading component manufacturers to build the major components for an OH-58D size concept demonstrator. After the Army cancelled the RH-70 Armed Reconnaissance Helicopter (ARH), AVX began studying the use of AVX Technology in the Armed Aerial Scout application and concluded that coaxial rotor, drive system, and ducted fan designs could readily migrate to the OH-58D fleet to provide significant performance improvement and extend the life of the OH-58D fleet for the next 20-25 years at a low cost.

Today, AVX is focused on providing the military with its patented coaxial rotor, dual ducted fan technology to significantly improve the performance of the OH-58D Kiowa Warrior, and to provide a new and enhanced rotorcraft design for near-term and future military and commercial platforms.

My Model

I used the well known Academy kit of the Bell OH-58D Kiowa Warrior (kit number 2197) and converted the kit into this possible next generation Armed Aerial Scout.
