Fantastic stuff!

 

One question. I thought that the MI-8 didn't suffer from mast bumping, because it's rotor head is designed differently from the Hueys. Am I wrong in that understanding?

 

This is one hell of a good question. I have found no data anywhere that leads me to believe that the Mi-8 can not suffer from mast bumping, nor have I found data that confirms that it does.

 

If you can find that answer, I would appreciate it. I will modify the guide accordingly.

Mast bumping is only an issue on two-bladed, teetering rotor systems (semi-rigid rotor system). Rigid (BO105, EC135, Bell 412, etc.) and fully-articulated rotor systems (anything with more than two rotor blades that's not rigid) are immune to mast bumping.

 

Good to know, I deleted the page about mast bumping.

 

I should've suspected that... especially since I wrote that "Mast Bumping was applicable to two-bladed rotors only".

 

I can be such a dumbnut sometimes. :lol:
