  6. Hey, I have shut down in some pretty rough winds and had blade sailing a few times, However never land the machine directly into strong wind (Always land into wind) but what I mean is once your ready to land just give a little left pedal get your nose 10 degrees off wind or so then if and when the blades sail thay wont contact your Tail boom, and move cyclic into wind direction slightly. Having said all that I ll always try to talk the customer out of shutting down in high winds or better yet drop them off and explain to them that you are going to shut down in a spot close buy with less wind, Perhaps on the lee side of the peak. If they refuse then just dont shut down you are PIC. Also one thing to note is the stress on the machine when the blades are sailing never a good thing. Well hope this helps My 2cents MH :punk:

  12. RR, Either your drunk or stoned, or if your even being serious, I d guess the latter. God there are some SH__HEADS on this forum... I dont think there is a single time I fly that I dont find myself thinking of something my instuctor or seasoned Vet friends have taught me... LL training is a no brainer.. So it may cost a bit, Whats your life worth or better yet the guys and gals that are recieving the gear... MH offcorse I ve only been doing it for ten years so I could be way off...
