I made a short video regarding my amazing ability to fly my RW up to 5 min. hand free without any pilot control inputs after my 500 hr. maintenance and service. This is total unusual for normally unstable helicopters.

To achieve that the rotor must be perfectly balanced, the centre of gravity and speed must correspond with each other.

Collective and throttle must have friction control but no Governor needed

It shows again there is nothing we cannot do with our RW

 

Please watch my video to witness the incredible performance.

What's a "govendor"?

 

Signed, the spelling police.

Arthur Gemperle,

 

I really enjoyed watching your videos, thanks for making them available.

 

I wonder if you would comment on the suitability of Rotorway helicopters for a non-commercial, low hour pilot to own and operate? I see what appear to be relatively inexpensive examples[1] which seem more or less attainable for the Average Joe who isn't a millionaire, but I've also seen threads like this one[2] from 10 years ago that don't paint an entirely favorable picture... I'd very much enjoy hearing your opinion on the subject.

 

Thanks again for the amazing videos!
