Does anyone know what happened to Dave Jackson aka Rotor Rooter?
I miss being able to dig around in his site and look at all the research and papers he posted on rotorcraft and parts and studies that were done.

RIP Dave Jackson ...... he passed away in July 2017 at the age of 77 ..... he was an engineer by training and years ago he developed a conveyor system , sold the patent rights and then became enamored with symmetrical inter-mesh rotor systems ..... he posted here as "Rotor Rooter" https://www.rotaryforum.com/members/rotor-rooter.358/

He also had an extensive website "Unicopter" where he gathered all his research , but it no longer exists

He left his 7 million dollar estate to this group and they have a bit of his story https://www.blueskyphilanthropy.com.../How-one-small-nonprofit-landed-a-7M-donation

He is in the center in both these pictures
