O.K. What are these Headloaders used for? I'm guessing you remove the main rotor blades and install these in their place to help tune the engine.

They're a bit risky to use on 2 accounts. The plastic is relatively soft and can compress unevenly on spoolup leading to vibe issues. The plastic can also fracture if you run them too fast

Sorry M8, that looks like 'corn' on the cob to me.

Might take a lot of balancing, and may not be the ideal aero-foil.

18 years ago when I was last in this sport we would mount the engine on a stand and bolt a prop to the engine. Then you would proceed to run/break in the engine that way. After break in you would then lean the engine out for maximum power (like you would for a fixed wing) and then richen it up a few clicks. I haven't seen any mention of this procedure anymore. I wonder why?

I guess better manufacturing tolerances, and higher grade lubricants contribute..

Mind you, if you decide to try and lean a heli out plank style,, give me enough notice, so i can charge up my camcorder.

I can't figure out why you wouldn't just fly the heli rich to break in the engine. I would never use head loaders.
