Astar Questions ?


Recommended Posts



Blades are ok but MUST keep ALL deice fluids away form rotorhead, the elastomeric bearings(rubber) must not have any type of deicing fluid on them, even if they were approved wouldn't use near them any way.


Astar blades are pretty tough but careful with heat, I usually use bladecovers or hanger,HA. Ice scrapers work fine though don't hit the blades, I think we've all seen the damage on 206 type blades from that.


Problem with most deicing fluids is that they don't take ice off that well unless applied warm, and if there is much snow around it dilutes the fluid and causes a visious circle, install covers prior is best medicine always.
