You've got to be joking. Looks like the most unsafe flying machine ever invented! No lock up on the blade like a locking torque converter on the centrifugal clutch. No battery to start it with in the field. How did they manage in Korea? Why did they never adapt a multiblade for better lift. Only way I would get onboard is if they were hauling my dead carcass!
Amazing a helicopter developed in the 40s is so smooth at taxying. Amazing. He was barely moving the stick.
Is it easy for small airplane pilots to transition to a Heli. Other than getting used to collective/throttle. Is it easier or harder to adjust vs if I wasn't familiar with small Cessnas, etc
The Bell 47...so beautiful and so simple.
The Bell 47 is one of the significant birds in aviation history both as the civilian model and as the H13.
If I was the guy in the tower I would take his helmet in shove it up his you know what. He should get out of the way of airplanes that need runways. He could have went the other way.
The first machine I trained in. The G2 had wooden blades. Then we were given the 206. Once licensed I moved up to the Astar. Lots of room and power but the old 47 was pretty cool. I liked the G4 as it had much more power and metal blades.
So where the stabilizer bar on the rotor head?
If he says "Yeah" or "Right" again, I'm going to reach through my screen and pimp-slap the shiznit out of him.
They should bring these back into production. They were cool little choppers. Robust and airworthy.
The gentle autorotation is no doubt due to the immense inertia on the Bell 47's blades.
Really nicely presented,I like the down to earth approach with your video's,the vintage Bell 47 still has quite a following and you can see why from this appraisal.
Hey Nick Hello! Brother your Jet Ranger 206 and Bell 47 and Robinson R22 was great! Hope to learn and Fly with you someday! Plz do more Helicopter videos!
Very nice videos. Still one of the coolest helps, especially the sound.
what is the rpm of the blades on the rotor of this aircraft.... just curious... please let me know if u kniw
A commercial Helicopter ... Pro... Very good fight. Demonstration That shows all the importance to take off with your wings or a blades. Very nice.
- Very nice ...
Thanks Nick. That's a great insight into my favourite helicopter of all time.
