Must be a 100 or so out there now with no use because most Mini-500 owners...

heli flying - which would be more fun/useful Schweizer 300C or a Bell 47G by Charles Morrice
You are comparing apples and oranges. A Schweizer is still in production and parts/support available; a G is long out of production and parts are harder and harder to find. If you want to fly lots rather than drive an antique a Schweizer is for you. In my humble opinion. CDM "Bonanza Man"...

Hi, Once you're a qualified private pilot, where can you/can't you fly? For instance, say I spot an interesting cloud formation.

Why do gyros use tilt head rather than swashplate by Phillip
Would a gyro with a swashplate ( just for pitch control) fly any different (better,worse) than using a tilt type rotor head? Just more complex? Also, I've seen some photos of early kit helicopters that appear to have just a tilting head (no way to auto-rotate ?). Isn't this a bit of a death wish?...

Mating Huey T/R blades and hub by Brian
I recently got a Bell 204 tail rotor hub assembly for the pair of blades I have, but am having difficulty attaching them. Is there some secret to getting them together? The blades are a REALLY tight fit into the grips. Thanks, Brian
