Helicycle by Stu Fields
Well, advancing age brings with it some clear thinking and some not so clear. I have purchased a Helicycle Kit and still own my Baby Belle. People with more than one helicopter that aren't in some commercial business are at least suspect. My wife is probably just patiently waiting for me to...

control failure by Stuart & Kathryn Fields
aluminum control tube failed causing helicopter crash. The helo had an anodized aluminum control tube that failed in fatigue with less than 400hrs. The loading was low producing stresses in the area of 460psi. Discussions with anodizing folks say "Never anodize flight critical components" ...

Rotor Balancing by Stuart & Kathryn Fields
I just had a strange one. I have been balancing my rotor system using a DSS balancer where I would get the ips and phase angle measurements, turn the rotor to the angle with respect to the photo cell described by the phase angle information, then sight over the velocimeter and add weight to the...

Clean up news group by [email protected]
Is there anyway to clean up this news group? We used to have some "rockstar" helicopter guys contributing! But as of the last few years the newsgroup has become a place for selling watches and complaining about instrument companies. I miss the useful information exchanged!

Victimizing Aircraft Designers - An American Specialty? (wasFetters) by Dennis Fetters
Poultry in Motion wrote: This is as clear as I can make it: "Ask Dennis to identify *the Mini-500 prototype* for you." Ok, ask me. What do you want to know about the "Mini-500 prototype". It was the first Mini-500 I built, so it was a prototype. What point are you trying to make? Please just...

Too much fun.. almost.. by Steve R.
Wow, sounds like such a great day! Congrats Kevin! :-) Isn't it wonderful when everything comes together? Ok, so you had a sloppy one. The important part is that you reacted properly and didn't bend the bird. It's all part of the learning experience. Question: Maybe I'm reading you too...

Ground 350 run without blades? by Sla#s
Has anyone ever run a AS 350 or 355 without the Main rotor blades fitted? We do it all the time with our 315 but I've never heard of it with a Squirrel / A Star. It would make tail rotor balancing a lot easier for a start - i.e. no pilot needed. That's what we do with our Lama and use to do with...

Rec License Requirement Question by [email protected]
Below is a quote from the FAR AIM Section 61.99 which lists the minimum "Aeronautical" experience required to get a REC Helicopter license. Notice that it never really says anything about helicopters. Paragraph (a)(2) and (b) are the only two that specifically say "in the aircraft for the rating...

Addon heli rating, does it require a written? by Eric D
If you have a private pilot fixed wing license are you required to take a written test of some type for adding helicopter rating? If yes, what is the written and is it different then what a non-license student would have to take? Eric D
