    Experimental helicopter crash?

    Yep it was me. At 300 feet I had a severe vibration, still not sure what it was. I figured it was a gearbox or a bearing, but could have been the clutch. Don't know yet, so I would not conclude anything at this early stage. I entered into an auto and lost the tail rotor at about 15 feet. I...
