Funny Video......and real safe. What is interesting is back in the early Rotorway days that was exactly how they recommended starting the helicopter

In the new version of the R22 they might as well avoid putting an electric starter... LOL

Are you having this problem due to belts dragging... I am experiencing that with my R44 since changing belts... with the first set installed, RHC recommended stretching overnight... they stretched so much one was cut on the first run and I had to change them again... ok for a while but now dragging during start and they are not tight... I believe rubber is transferring to the sheave and causing too much friction... helps to move belts back and forth a little before starting but blades still turn before engaging clutch... perhaps this is not your problem though... would like to hear from others...  Brian (bconwayusa@aol.com)

I guess that if they only start moving slightly it is fairly normal, especially in winter.

The new Japeneese made belts for the R22's are soo tight, sometimes with the actuator adjusted all the way down, the belts drag the starter on start up, so we do this to minimise the wear on the MRGD and the rest od the drivetrain, ive had turbine pilots watch and make the comment "Look they have to wind it up before they can fly"  :o :swear:
