    1, underslung rotor hub too flexible in plane causing rotor weave, at low collective the pylon whirl will show up causing structural damage a flaw that was never fix even with Pops first design, 2, too heavy all over and not in the right places, T/R gear box attach plate not triangulated, tail stabilizer known to crack and leave the aircraft, T/R blade and main rotor grip spindles not radius or shot peened in high stress areas, M/R mast solid too heavy and adds to vibration, 3 landing gear too stiff does not absorb impact, fuel tanks burst on hard landings or stabbed by rotating flight controls, 4 vibration problems never solved and the companies new owners just added more weight. Main gear box bearings known to come apart damaging gear sets, fan known to sling blades, 5 fly-bar system not required -
    a lot of other changes offed to Mr. sweet before Safari company was sold to the guys in Florida. they fixed nothing, just added more meat...

    I have a friend that is considering a Safari Helicopter. I am trying to talk him out of getting one. He seems to think the latest incarnation makes up for all the shortcomings of previous models. I seem to recall you had some very salient points against the design - could you please message me with your critic so I can talk some sense into him ?
