agreed about the dolly. hopefully we get another, we cant afford to take the 300's off the trailer. they go in and out to often to push by hand. much easier to drag them around w/ the fourwheeler.

Not to heavy when we fitted new blades they flew like S**t No lift No Speed But NO vibes at all, the Chadwick would not lock, dial just hunted, But collective went from pleasant to Heavvvvy, You can adjust with the bungy spring! we chased the blade manufacturers about lift & speed 25\30 Kts. & at least 150\200 Lbs down.

They had blades back & faired in the erosion strips this appeared to make very little difference when returned we found a tweak that returned most of speed & lift it also returned the collective to a reasonable weight, it would appear that the whole length of the trim tab has a real effect on the collective weight as well as track & balance.

It is real important to check the full length of the trim tabs

We have flown blades that Mr muscle would be required to fly, (it flew OK other than heavy collective) and we know of one set of blades after initial balance\track on pulling collective took the pilot for a towering take off, there was no prior warning on initial balance track it was as much as he could do to push the collective down.

The spring can make a real difference but if you have to adjust it a long way check the tabs

Wow, very nice, indeed!!! ;)

 

I've not even started to build stick time (still waiting to hear back from the FAA's Medical division, even though they've had my ticket for two months and I call them twice a week, LOL), but once I do get started, this chopper is the kind I hope to end up in for at least a good while. :D Keeping my fingers crossed!
