Things you can do with a Fenestron


Recommended Posts

Pretty interesting things you can do when you don't have an exposed tail rotor. Not saying I would try this though, seems like a prime candidate for dynamic rollover.

 

 

Have you seen the video of the 135 crew picking a guy out of flood waters with a skid? The tail drops momentarily and the Fenestron dips into the water. Makes a great geyser, but that's about it. Helicopter didn't show an appreciable change in yaw, which I would have expected. I was surprised the extra rsistance from the water didn't cause immediate damage.
