I obtained this RFD hub bar w/ a set of Dragon Wings some years back. It is odd compared to the usual ones you produced in that the block only has one hole instead of several
choices of putting the teeter bolt through for underslung adjustments. And, it is shorter than the usual ones of 1' between the rotorblades roots.

Enclosed are several photos of it & the initials that probably tell you the person who built it.
Can you shed some light on this unusual hub bar?

Thank you!

That was made for any 2 1/4" undersling rotor head. The most common single seat head, Aircommand, Parsons, Bensen, Brock and so on.
It could also be a custom undersling. It would have to be measured to be sure.

Here is some pics fo my Bensen hub bar. I think the blades are 10 feet each. I bought these years ago from someone on the east coast. There is some minor surface corrosion on the blade rivets so I have never flown them.
