  1. Good point, maybe its just me. Hover and forward flight are great. I guess we’ll see once we pack it full of mouth breathers or with heavy sling loads. Thanks for the help.
  2. Well i just read Mikes post about forum misconduct…hopefully this job Ad I saw isn’t the one he is referring to. If so disregard or let me know and I’ll delete post…if i can even do that.
  3. So these posts never go well on here but I’m bored so I’ll ask…for science. A Vernon based company is looking for a PRM….o_O Salary being offered seems low. Are they just setting a point to start negotiations? Maybe a typo? $72000
  4. Yeah I’m not a fan of flying in a rough machine. I changed those bearings as they were super sloppy. Definitely helped a bit but still some 3 per there. Only really when landing. Slow forward speed collective down.
  5. Thanks for all the info guys. Much appreciated. So this definitely happened, a bit by accident though. The heli had a bit of a hump, we just got our brand new Microvibe and I was more than thrilled to burn that old chadwick....anyway. Only two runs later it's butter smooth, almost scary smooth. Then we descend back to camp and the 3per is there. I ask the pilot, has that always been doing that? Answer was, "I dunno" I've check over the usual 3 per culprits, it's been through a 600 and I'm pretty sure the swashplate friction was fine but I may just have another peak at that. If that's fi
  6. Looking for some tips to get a good main rotor balance on the Astar. My experience level on them is low but im rapidly fighting the wolves. We use the microvibe and using its instructions along with airbus you first setup ground track and take out ground lateral vibrations. Easy enough. Then hover track and hover lateral. Also easy however my issue is that hover balance is nice and smooth the ground track and balance is no longer smooth. Normal or am I missing a step? When bending tabs, if you need 3 degrees tab on one blade do you bend both tabs 3 degrees or do you split it and eith
  7. Hello, I was just wondering if anyone had a pretty good spares kit list for this machine with the Arriel 2D that they would be willing to share. Just trying to get some inventory on hand. I have manual access and have started making my own but I don't have a lot of experience on type. Thanks.
  8. Can you tell me where this is located in the flight manual? I can not find. Thanks.
  9. For mounting anything as a Minor mod to the top of the dash on the 206 under Cars 571 appendix A, what do you do for the question that asks "does it affect the flight-crew's visibility or their ability to control the aircraft?" Some TC inspectors argue that anything mounted there affects visibility. I've seen pictures of some monster ipad/gps installs. So has anyone ever discussed this with TC? Seems subjective and up to the person installing to decide. Thanks
