Aircraft whose airlift is provided not by wings but rather by an unpowered horizontal rotor that move due to the forward movement of the vehicle, thus providing the necessary lift. Contrary to the helicoptar, it does not have a tail rotor. The forward propulsion is provided by a propeller at the nose of the aircraft.
Avión provisto de alas en forma de hélice, articuladas en un eje vertical, que giran por efecto de la resistencia del aire durante el avance del aparato y le sirven de sustentación. (RAE) Contrariamente al helicóptero, no lleva rotor de cola. En cambio, tiene una hélice en el morro del aparato, que le proporciona el avance necesario.
Heavier than air vehicle, without wings, characterized by the fact that its lift is provided by a motor-driven vertical rotor and an horizontal rotor at the vehicle's tail that prevents the lateral movement due to the torsion generated by the horizontal rotor.
Aeronave más pesada que el aire y que, a diferencia del avión, se sostiene merced a una hélice de eje aproximadamente vertical movida por un motor, lo cual le permite elevarse y descender verticalmente. (Real Academia de la Lengua). No obstante, un helicóptero se caracteriza además por el rotor vertical por una hélice horizontal en la cola que evita que el cuerpo del aparato se desplace en la misma dirección que la hélice. Ver también autogiro.
Un conductor utilizado para enviar o recibir ondas electromagnéticas, normalmente un cable, hilo metálico, malla o varilla metálica.

Example sentences
