Show of Hands! Who Would Fly/Ride This?

Recommended Posts


Nope, I'll pass. Thought old dude was going to lose a head to the blades at one point, but kudos to him getting it off the ground

I will too, this chopper seems something exited from a steam punk movie.

All that just to get the grass cut

 

I'd like to think that soon after they took off, someone happily mowed that patch of grass. It looks to me they like to keep their field looking good.

I'd have to think about it, but it would be yes.

The Kamov-26 was always underpowered. To fly this helicopter it was neccessary to push the engines to their limits. There was no power reserve for emergencies. IIRC there was a Ka-126 with gasturbines, which was a much better helicopter.

After it's had a full track and balance, drain and flush, lube, and torque checks completed, sure.
