Have there been any successful tip-jet helicopters? by Jeremy Thomson
I'm not aware of any tip-jet helicopters that have made it into production. Please correct me if I'm wrong.

Pre-Rotator Powered by Compressed Air? by nuke
"...Liquified nitrogen gas can store a lot of energy, pressure-wise..." Not so. The reason people store N2 in the liquid phase is that the density is high so you store a lot of mass for little volume. Also if you keep it liquified you can store it in a lightweight thin wall tank. To keep...

The Comanche Vs. The Hulk by Tim
They were computer generated. Some of the differences in the movie was that they added endplates to the horizontal stabilizer on the tail and there was no cant in the vertical fin. I am sure that they had to make the differences so it would not be and exact replica for security reasons. But none...

Can anyone speak to the problems and challenges that I might encounter in purchasing a OH-58A+ . I plan on using it for primarily for turbine training but was wondering if there were any income producing activities that could be done under the restricted designation. Thanks Peter
