Video on a helicopters and its vibrations
#1
I happen to stumble upon this video on Youtube, an Airbus (Eurocopter) EC-120B.  This video goes through the walk around start up and subsequent flight.  I found it to be quite interesting - all of the panel shaking during the run up and during the flight.  I really thought there would be less shaking in a "professionally" built helicopter.  I have hope for my XEL!

I once had a fella tell me that everything that spins, no matter how well it is balanced, has a speed in which it will start to vibrate.  It might be 5,000,000 RPMs but eventually it WILL happen.

Enjoy the video, see you at the Fly-in!
