Design helicopter model Schweizer X2 41 began in the early 2000-ies, with the American aircraft manufacturers of the company «Schweizer Aircraft Corporation» set out to create a multi-purpose aircraft, but initially it was only on the establishment of a pilot of the aircraft, which later could be involved in the military sphere (as shock helicopter), and in the civil field.
Thanks to the unique system of its kind in use propellers helicopter Schweizer X2 41, aircraft repeatedly demonstrated the speed record for rotorcraft that certainly spoke about the prospects of the development of this project in the future.
His first test demonstration flight helicopter model Schweizer X2 41 has made in August 2008 years, however, in the course of 30-mitnutnogo testing revealed problems with the rotor and transmission of an aircraft, in connection with which preokt was aimed at further technical optimization, and 2010 year, a number of new test flight proved to be more successful in this connection the work with the project proceeded, however, in the year 2011, helicopter Schweizer X2 41 was decided to stop developing.

Despite its fairly Length of the structure, the aircraft model Schweizer X2 41 has a high maneuverability, due to the special arrangement of the propellers of the aircraft.
In the cockpit of the aircraft Schweizer X2 41 can accommodate up to two people, however, at the design stage it was assumed that a military version of the helicopter will have a crew consisting of two persons, while the civilian version was to allow to carry on its board until 8 people including two crew members. Moreover, aircraft manufacturers also considered the possibility of using the helicopter as a means of business aviation, however, due to a significant rise in price of the project, from the existing plans it was decided to abandon.

The helicopter is equipped with Schweizer X2 41 power gas turbine plant, consisting of one aircraft engine model LHTEC T800-LHT-801, the ability to develop traction in 1800 hp, which in turn allowed the helicopter to accelerate to maximum speed in 460 km \ h., That today is an absolute record for rotorcraft. Maximum range of flight of the aircraft is 1300 kilometers, which is also quite acceptable.
Subsequently, on the basis of the helicopter Schweizer X2 41 was created model Sikorsky S-97 Raider.
