Just found out about this interesting Chinese variant of the MQ-8 Fire scout UAV helicopter, one thing I notice is the strange rotorhub. Anybody have any details on this interesting helo? Look closely at the MQ-8 Fire scout compared to the Chinese SVU-200 Rotor hub design, if you look closely it has no pitch links, I think they're hidden inside the shaft, like the swiss marenco helicopter. Very interesting
Has anyone ever heard of an R22 engine overspeed that was between 110 & 116%, but left the rotor below 110% (split needles)? Can belts normally slip like that with a sudden increase in throttle/torque or A> There is an issue with the belt tension settings B> The flight crew's perception/interpretation of the tachs was incorrect C> Something else? If it was A> is there anything you could detect on a preflight or on engine run-up (blades taking more than 5 seconds to turn etc?) Regards
I am not a helicopter professional, nor a pilot, just a fan. I am looking to create a cutaway technical illustration of a AW101 or CH-149 as they are known in my country. This is for a personal portfolio piece, not a professional illustration. I know this helicopter uses three GE T700-T6A1 turbines. I've found images of the engine, but nothing showing how they sit in the engine bays of the helicopter. Does anyone have any images of a AV101 undergoing an engine replacement? Anything you can send my way would be helpful. Thanks! Matt
