  1. Thank you so very much for your answer it was exactly what I was looking for! I knew since it was literally a hole in the impeller inducer shroud then pressure had to play a part someway and somehow in whether air was taken in or blown out. I just couldn’t figure out where and how the pressure came from and thankfully you provide a great answer to my question! I appreciate the time and thoroughness that you put into my answer! Thanks again!
  2. Thank you I saw it but specifically I’m referring to the slot in the liner of the compressor for the suck/blow hole
  3. have a simple question on how the inducer bleed port works for the suck/blow hole on the 206. Air escapes the inducer bleed port during startup to allow rapid acceleration and minimize compressor stall of the compressor and it sucks air In to allow for maximum efficiency of the compressor and engine once the engine is at a higher RPM. Although a novice question for most of you guys I can’t figure out how the inducer port is regulated? (I understand it’s a physical hole that’s not actually opened or closed)I know the inducer bleed port is just a slot machined at the top of the shroud housing (compressor lining) but how is air regulated entering and exiting the inducer bleed port. Thanks in advance!

  5. Ive recently started to practice a few vertical reference landings and landing my heel on a spot. With that said sometimes I can do it other times I cant. Im struggling to understand the tendencies of the helicopter when on the air cushion or a few inches above the ground. Any tips tricks to help me figure this thing out? I.e. I fly a 206L thanks in advance guys
  6. To elaborate on my question a little more; have you ever seen anyone hold a hover whole operating in the air cushion region approximately 2-6 inches off the ground? Everyone says, “just push through it,” “allow the helicopter to continue settling,” as if it’s not even possible to hold a steady hover in that region? That’s really the basis for my original question. I have heard where the root vortices of the blade are what causes disturbances when extremely close to the ground? Can anyone expand a little on this? Thanks
  7. When landing from people often say get a steady controlled descent, when you hit the air cushion it will slow your descent to allow for a smooth landing or just keep it coming down. I know there are many talented people on here thats why I pose the question, what techniques do you use to stay smooth when only inches above the ground? I.e trailer landings, landing on platforms. Are movements more smooth and slow as opposed to quick short counter movements in a hover? Thanks in advance!
  8. Assuming a rapid spin was able to build from lte or complete loss of tail rotor would gyroscopic precession eventually make cyclic controls inputs backwards? Bit of a hypothetical question but any insight is much appreciated
  9. There are some brilliant people on here that I would like to ask a question. In a hover auto show r simulated stuck right power approach what makes us yaw left when we roll off throttle? Thanks so much!
  10. What causes the helicopter to yaw left when throttle has is rolled off? (Counter clockwise system) In my limited knowledge it seems that once throttle is rolled off, thus removing torque effect, that right pedal would not be needed nor left since we don't have the torque effect to counter. Contrary to my thinking we need lots and lots of right pedal but why??? Any insight would be greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance
