Rotor Head...how do I know?
May 08, 2014 - 11:32 AM - by madwinger

Is there a way to look at my Air Command Rotor head and by looking at it know it is put together correctly? I mean NOT UPSIDE DOWN. This concerns me since Steve Weir's accident last year and especially since I have encountered so may issues with my gyro since I purchased it.

I would appreciate any and all advise. I just want to make sure.

The bearing seems to be quite, smooth and tight but that is all know.

Thanks

Mark

Hand spinning a Cavalon

One of the pilots I am traveling with suffered a prerotator failure on his Cavalon today which forced us to hand spin. It turned out being a terrific lesson in patience and rotor management.
