The current paper has been written in order to find the best solutions to replace the antitorque rotor of single-rotor helicopters, with removal of its disadvantages through the Coandə Effect. This would significantly increase the flight performance. The research mainly aims at obtaining a controlled lateral force due to Coandə flows through the tail boom, a force which would be useful for the stabilization needed because of the lifting rotor during the flight of single-rotor helicopters. © 2015 Ionicə Cîrciu et al.
