Designing a model helicopter Silvercraft SH-200 Italian aviarazrabotchikami began in the first half 70-ies of the last century. As a fundamental principle, aircraft manufacturers of the company «Silvercraft SpA» used quite popular model aircraft Silvercraft SH-4, which appeared a few years earlier. However, the design of the aircraft has been improved, and its flight performance have become more promising, thanks to which, the project was supposed to be very popular, however, because some of the functional limitations of its use, the helicopter Silvercraft SH-200 has not been started into production.
The main difference between the models of light helicopters Silvercraft SH-4 and Silvercraft SH-200 is the capacity and speed, as well as range of motion. These factors allow to increase the scope of applicability of the aircraft, however, since in fact the helicopter Silvercraft SH-200 had a small seating capacity and could not, unlike the model Silvercraft SH-4 to transport cargo on its board, the project has found a failure.

The first test flight of the aircraft model Silvercraft SH-200 1977 in April of the year, with all test aircraft was very successful, and therefore was prepared mass production. Nevertheless, the lack of demand has meant that in 1979, the project was officially canceled.
Thanks to a good aerodynamic shape design helicopter Silvercraft SH-200, and its relatively small size, this flying machine has a very high flight speed is quite good in terms of its management and is quite agile.
The cabin of the helicopter Silvercraft SH-200 has a closed type, and allows you to post here two people - a pilot and a passenger. Due to the fact that the helicopter control system is not coupled type, the aircraft can not operate as educational and training tools, and the lack of a corresponding cabin space does not allow to exploit the current model for transportation.
The power plant helicopter Silvercraft SH-200 consists of a piston aircraft engine brand Lycoming LHIO-360-C1A, able to develop traction in 205 hp Through the use of a sufficiently powerful propulsion system, helicopter Silvercraft SH-200 can accelerate up to speed in 180 km \ h. (Maximum value), while the maximum distance a helicopter following range limits in 350 kilometers.
