balancing act by Stuart & Kathryn Fields
Here's one for the pros: I was balancing my tail rotor and had it down to 0.27 ips and still had just a touch too much weight where I had added it. So still needing to safety wire a bolt that is located in the center of the tail rotor output shaft, I chose to safety it to a hole 180 degrees from...

Helicycle Insurance by sjmadden
Can you get liability insurance for the Helicycle? If so, how much would it run in ballpark figures. What do you do with your Helicycle. Do you fly over 100 miles in it or do you just fly within a short area. I am interested in the helicopter, but one seat and limited range make me think twice. ...

UH=1 by Brien
The rear transmission support on a UH-1, is this one support mostly for the twisting action of translational lift ? Or is it more of a vibration or shock unit. As it is only held in by (8) -3 bolts it hard to think of any real support.

Went absolutely nowhere today - and had a ton of fun. by Ol Shy & Bashful
Kev Along the coast at Pt Loma there are the remains of a number of old coastal gun emplacements. I lived in Azure Vista (ever heard of it? Between Ocean Beach and Pt Loma) during and right after the war. We used to visit them and get the little boxes of cereal; from the troops. When the bunkers...

Flew with a Robinson factory pilot today.. by Don W
Hi Kevin, You didn't say, but I'm assuming that you were flying a R22, and not the R44. I've only done about 3 autos in the R22, but what you are saying makes sense to me, and was also the way I was taught. As long as you don't let the rotor RPM get into the red, you are fine, and the...

Question for the Turbine pilots. by 601XL Builder
We have a doctor who just bought a 206 and after less than a month the chopper has been sent for a new engine. I heard he had a "Hot Start" and burned out the engine. While I'm both fixed wing and helicopter certified I have zero experience with jets so what did he do? And what's it gonna cost him?
