Description This kit helicopter is one of the landmarks in Rotorway history. It is derived from the early Javelin model designed by B.J. Schramm, whose mission was to create helicopters for the common man with a price tag below $10,000 (1960s).

The Javelin was a single-seater model powered by a 40hp motorcycle engine (2-cycle)! It was modified into the Schramm Scorpion and was the first helicopter sold by Rotorway (1968). Later, in 1971, Rotorway introduced the Scorpion II, a two-seater helicopter powered by the much more powerful OMC 125hp engine, which also had a 2-cycle engine.

The most successful model was the Scorpion RW133 II, which was the first to use an engine designed and produced by Rotorway itself. Rotorway realized that a 2-cycle engine produces too much vibration, causing problems like cracks in metal parts. After conducting market research, the company decided to design and produce the engines themselves, a tradition that continues to this day for combustion engines. The RW133 II was introduced in 1976 and uses the Rotorway RW133, a 4-cycle piston engine.

The Scorpion line ended with the 145 model, which is identical to the RW133 but with a Rotorway RW145 engine.
