pairoboots Posted March 26, 2005 Report Share Posted March 26, 2005 would like opinions on choosing enstrom 280 fx over r 44 for personal ship. i have most of time in r 22 & r 44 some in 300c. recently flew 280 c liked it a lot after i quit fighting controls. i like the room & adjustable pedals & the ship feels so stable. i also like that heavy rotor system, makes me feel better & safer. i like the r 44 & its hydrolics & speed, but the little extra speed is not a concern for me. have located mechanics willing to go to factory enstrom training as i do not live near any enstrom service center. prices on new ships are close. considering, safety,reliability,maintenance is the 280 fx a good choice over r 44.
