This is the same guy. He makes me wonder. Did he just twisted wires together on engine start? He yanked up that collective without having RRPM up...... all I can say is WOW. http://v.youku.com/v_show/id_XMTgzNjY4MDQ0
I'm impressed he built it! BUT yikes not sure he is going to be alive for long or at lease become crippled when he installs an engine what can fit it.
I don't think that guts I beleive in this case ignorance is bliss...
Did anyone else notice the loose drive belts from the clutch on the engine to the transmission? There is a huge amount of the fractional horse power available, being lost there for a start. I also notice that he pulls full collective to 'slow' the rotor system at shut down.
I am impressed with the light push pull cable to the tail rotor (NOT).
Over the series of videos here it would appear that he has made some improvements as far as the twisted wire ignition and start button. It would be nice to know what caused that huge 'puff' of dust under the drive belts and then the shut down.
That sure is 'spam in can' waiting to happen.
looks like he balanced out the rotors a little better. it was not shaking quite as bad as the first two vid's. wait untill he figures out engine and rotor RPM management then we sill see a good show. and you guys were picking on poor Cameron.
As a helicopter pilot, I can tell you he is doing almost everything wrong. Glad to see it appears it does not have enough power to every get anywhere other than tipped over, decapitated, and the parts scattered all over his neighborhood. Hope the little kids are out of the way when it happens. I give him great credit for the build, but it ain't going to be pretty without a lot of training and helicopter modification.
it looks like his main blades are badly out of track in the First video, and yeah that is not easy to adjust, trust me I know.
and from that tail boom jumping up and down,I would say his tail rotor blades are not balanced. he really need some type of tail rotor guard.
I can't beleive he dose not have at least a seat belt of some type or at least a motor cycle helmet.
I wonder if when he turns him self into sushi ,if they will allow that video to be posted.
