I read that this morning, very sad situation for him, at least everyone walked away. Does anyone have any info on what experimental helo it was? I was guessing it might have been one of those Safari's we were talking about a while back.

 

EDIT- I just checked the pics. on that thread and the tail boom of the crashed helo is bigger than that of the safari

I'm not 100% sure but the framework, stabilizer and the way the material melted looks a lot like a Rotorway.

I took the photo from the news article and compared them to those at the builders site. The builders site has a lot of warnings about how to change the routing of oil and fuel lines to prevent damage to them. Apparently the suggested routing leaves a little to be desired.
