Well those thumbnails look interesting.

But no matter how many times I have upgraded my version of
Windows media player for my Macintosh, for the most part
I only ever get a black screen.

Thanks - Very interesting.

What prevents those contra-rotating rotors from touching?

I notice on the JU88 video the KA32 taxis all over the airfield before
taking off. On the helicopter flights I've made from commercial
airports, the same thing happened. Any idea why this is done?

The Scilly Isles heli from penzance does the same, and it takes of (all be
it rather steeply) like a fixed wing aircraft. I assumed this was to save
fuel.

In the JU-88 vid, it looked like the KA-32 was just taxying to the helipad
for departure - that's common practice at my home airport where there's a
lot of helicopter activity. Helps ATC coordinate while optimising
helicopter operations a little more than pretending to be a f/w.

As for penzance - I haven't been there, but if they're close to Max Weight,
they may prefer to use the runway for a bit of a rolling takeoff. Also,
some ATCers don't really know (or want to know) how to deal with
helicopters so they force them to act like a f/w around their airfield -
this is generally also the case under IFR regardless. Some or perhaps all
of those reasons might be it.

The blades are rigid, far apart , but, most importantly, they are kept
about the same distance from each other by the centrifugal force.
Sometime they do touch, however. This happened with the Ka-50 when the
pilot exceeded the maximum G load during testing. Ka-50 crashed and the
pilot had no time to eject. Since then Kamov use a different material
for the blades and moved them further apart.
