This is a group started so builder,restorer and owner/ pilots can talk about  their helicopters, flight experiences,updates,and projects of all Experimental helicopters, from older designs such as Helicoms and Scorpions to newer designs such as the Helicycles and safari's and Rotorways.

looking for interior photos of the Rare Hillman Hornet helicopter N8063D. it was built in 1978 by the late Doug Hillman.  it was an Oshkosh award winner in 1979.

Well I never was able to sell my Helicopter for my asking price, but I did learn it has the 2 place drives and blades on it. so I am now swapping the parts over to a 2 place airframe I picked up. need to sell my Cont. C90-12F to buy a lycoming 0-320.

well I am hoping to see this group grow, if you have any questions about Experimental helicopter kits and designs, feel free to contact me. if I don't have the answers I can direct you to the people that do.

I have been studying kit built Helicopters since around 1975. and I have an extensive collection of EAA and other Rotor craft magazines with the original write ups on several machines. I also have connections on finding parts on older machines.
