What happened that it almost killed you? Is that why you sold it? I am thinking of a helicycle...did you get out what you had into it?baronpilot;n47636 said:Would like to hear your thoughts on both. I had a Helicycle. Love the way it flew other than when it tried to kill me by going into a horrible pylon whirl in the main rotor system.
The Helicycle would cruise nicely at 90 MPH. A little thirsty at 14 GPH.
The 285 appears to be an Artic Cat 800 HO engine. Have they figured out how to keep proper lubrication of the engine with low MP and high RPM? I assume the EFI / computer handles the oil injection with RPM as a variable?
Also interested in the EXT. I must admit I really liked the Helicycle engine. It was the best part of the helicopter.
Would loved to hear PIREPS.
