All great responses. Nice and clean.

I think also worth mention that the external load limit is referring to a load that does not put more weight on the skids.

As´╗┐ ´╗┐an examp´╗┐le the Bell 407 has a internal limi´╗┐t o´╗┐f´╗┐´╗┐´╗┐´╗┐ 5250 (suck it b3) but an´╗┐ extern´╗┐al of ´╗┐6000. The limiting factor is the skid gear. The powertrain and engine can do 6000 but´╗┐ if you are going down the skid gear wont save your back. as you would be falling faster than a manhole cover..

Oh the 5250 debate....
