Back in a Robby

01-02-2015 12:14:06

Well after selling my R44 II and flying an MD500 for a number of years, I am back in an R44 (a lease this time for now). I had not flown the R44 since I had sold 4142G, but being back in it reminds me of how enjoyable they are to fly!

It's good to be back!

Hi Richard!
Good, how is the MD500? Here enjoying the Raven I without maintenance issues.

Hugs from Chile,

Save up for the several sets of main rotor blades Robinson will require you to purchase (if you decide to buy a Robinson helicopter).

Melvyn -

Good to hear from you my friend. I very much enjoy all the pictures you send. I am enjoying the R44 once again, I received an offer on my 500 that I could not pass up. On the pocketbook side of things, I found that I can fly almost 5 hours in the R44 for every one hour in my MD500....Interesting enough, I spent almost six hours in the 44 between yesterday and today!

SN - Yea, I saw the requirement for blade replacement every five years...what a shame...Robinson should contract out to someone that can actually make a set of blades that can last.

My buddy flies a Enstrom 280FX and the blades have no life limit, they are on-condition and he has many thousands of hours on his blades with no problems....

Richard,

No more push overs, barrel rolls or hammer heads...  Welcome back to the world of 2D.

No kidding, but I do find solace in the fact that the Robby is about 1/4 the cost per hour to operate than my 500!

Richard:

BTW:  where did the 500 end up? What state?

Is it possible we could see that "labor-of-love" on an airport near us?

Enjoy the rental and no big bills.  :)
