.... I was lifting a heavy load with a four point when one of the clevises that was knuckled under let go with a jolt. Because I had full power on the nodal beam set up a resonance between the rotor system and the load. It was a violent vertical hump that was taking me out of the seat. Lucky I just put the load down and in getting rid of the power the resonance settled down.



Just curious MC, how long was the line and what was it made from?
