Don't delete this thread, because the video shows something important!Can the admin please delete this thread?
That thought had occurred to me that he had attempted a take off in that direction, which...My guess is that he decided not to use the runway. Maybe because of a direct crosswind? I am sure a lot more information will come out in the investigation.
That would have to be about a 90° veer, it seems to me. Not very likely given the size and shape of the field.It appears to me that the aircraft veered left on the takeoff roll. Hard to tell with the quality of the video and distance involved.
Exactly.Poor aviation decision making. Simply put.
No gyro needs to be traveling that fast on the ground prior to take off. Rotor was barely loaded.... resulting in very little lift. IMHO.
Do they really claim take of in 30 meters? You have not yet met some of the arrogant Germans at AG .....Do they really claim to take off in 30metres.? In still air? With more than a thimbleful of fuel and not with an anorexic dwarf at the controls?.
I've yet to see it, or anything remotely near it, on video. In fact, most of the videos I have seen were more noteworthy for the unusually long takeoff.
An overpowered single-seat Dom can get off in 30 metres. Possibly Birdy can, if he really wants to, but a Cavalon, no way.
