    You can bet on that. Also I'm wondering if there is a fuel pressure gauge that will show pressures in the .01 - 2 lb range... I have not tried that yet but the tanks are secure now with caps in place and all under cover. The tank that had the cap off was drained to the opening when on it's side and the other tank was leaking small amount of fuel from the vent but I'd guess there is at least 15 gallons remaining (out of the 40 that was in there after fill up). I actually tried to crank it up last night but the battery was too weak and I have other things on my mind right now (like our trip to Alaska Saturday). Just looking at the pics the guy at the factory says it can be rebuilt for between $40 - $80k. If I could be sure it would be near the $40k mark I just might do it. It's not worth much as it sits.

    . Popular historical strategies for dealing with differences have included: brutally enforced conformity, brutally efficient genocide, and making sure to keep the "alien machine" (liberalism) tuned really really carefully. And when I see someone try to smash this machinery with a sledgehammer, it’s usually followed by an appeal to “but racists!” You say we must protect freedom of speech. But would you protect the free speech of racists? You say people shouldn’t get fired for personal opinions that don’t affect their work. But would you let racists keep their jobs? You say we try to solve disagreements respectfully through rational debate. But would you try to rationally debate racists?

    You can bet I'm kicking myself for not checking that cap. Something so damn simple! The intake is quite a way from the tank but I've been researching "gravity fed" systems and you only get about 1 psi fuel pressure for 30" drop and on my system is maybe a 40" drop so 1.25 psi is not a lot of pressure for 180 hp. The system has worked perfectly for about 340 hours (TT Airframe) but with that low of a pressure it wouldn't take very much of an "issue" to cause the pressure to drop to the point that fuel flow gets cut to maybe .5 psi. I would think that trying to feed an engine developing maybe 90 hp at cruise with .5 psi would do just what I experienced. Power cut followed by power surge (as the float bowl gets another gulp of fuel) and instant bowl exhaustion and etc. I reviewed the gopro video and the engine was still running at low speed after I came to rest. I instantly shut off all switches and fuel shut off so the engine was not running for more than maybe 5 seconds lying sideways. I do not have any recollection of the engine running while I was shutting off everything but the audio is there. Yup. Fuel exhaustion is one of my pet peeves even. For that reason I never feel comfortable with less than 1/2 tanks. Even when I bought this chopper there was another fuel injected version right next to it but I wanted the fuel management to be as simple as possible so I opted for gravity fed...

    I'll give you an example. Virginia governor McDonnell was indicted on federal corruption charges and got 2 years and now he's not serving a day. But it sure looked good. And lo and behold our new Guv Terry McCauliff is right smack dab in the middle of similar accusations with as much or more legitimacy. And he will never see one day behind bars because of his huge political ties to the Clinton machine.

    Very good guess. I'm guessing it's a related problem. When we came back to the site with recovery equipment and trailer I noted (and photographed) the one gas cap dangling from it's chain. I thought this is mighty strange since the impact with the ground was very minimal and it didn't even bend the landing struts or do any damage on the belly of the chopper. The only reason there's damage is because it nosed over and the rotors impacted the ground. The movements were slight enough that I did not get a sore neck, sore back or even a scratch (except for the thorns against my bare legs as I hiked out). So why would the cap come lose? Well, it's my fault that I did not check them after fueling (as is common and I usually do). I don't believe the cap was completely lose as then the outside of the polished aluminum tank would show scratches where it was bouncing around. What could have happened is it was put on crooked, with only one dog engaged allowing the fuel to be sucked out the top of the tank as I was flying forward. Since my engine is gravity fed this might have resulted in lower than normal fuel flow to the engine (perhaps after a certain number of gallons were sucked out). None of this can be or will be proven since there was no property damage or injury so we are treating it as an "incident" rather than an accident (no NTSB investigation). Even if I could prove that's what happened one of the guys who helped me recover it was an FBO operator in the past and he stated it's the pilots responsibility to make sure the fueling is done properly. Ultimately I should have checked... PS. The factory has seen a pic of the damage and they say it might be repaired for a not too insurmountable sum. I will consider it.

    Today I had an "issue" with my helicopter which resulted in it being destroyed... I'm crushed, of course but not physically hurt. I was flying it back from getting fuel at a nearby airport when about 10 minutes into the flight the engine started surging. The throttle became completely unmanageable so I put it into auto-rotation and picked a spot between the trees that looked reasonable from the air. Unfortunately when I got to within 50 feet of landing I saw it was a downhill slope which is not how you want to land a helicopter. I touched down with very little vertical velocity and maybe 10 mph forward speed (which is fine on flat land). Due to the rather steep slope down the helicopter rocked forward and flipped. I walked away but the helicopter needs total rebuild now... It was always my dream to own my own helicopter and I lived it for a year even though I never quite got my rating. I had just been signed off for solo flight yesterday and today the engine quit and I had to land. The training saved my life as I was able to get it on the ground with no vertical velocity which meant no injuries to me. Now I have to make the decision whether I want to rebuild it or not...

    Sure, and don't take it personally when I tell you there are lies, damned lies, and statistics. One thing I've learned after years of listening to the "experts" is their "statistics" are usually at the very least, exaggerated... So when I see "statistics" or "science" conflicting with my own personal experiences, I believe my gut before the experts. I lived in the 60's. I have personal experience in that subject. If you have "statistics" that conflict with my personal experiences, sorry, but I'll believe my experiences long before I'll believe your "science".
