I will assume that's not a portable lawn chair.
A training setup for helicopters,

I think about the hereafter. I go somewhere to get something, then wonder what I'm here after ?

I had one back in the day, its kind of scary because the heli just wobbles on its side and spins until you get the rotor spooled up and theres no controlling it at first, kinda cool to learn hovering with though, I haven't seen that thing in twenty years, thanks for the memory!

I think that is. What ever it is. It's the realy thing. We used it a few time. It looked cool, at the time. Its was pricy from what I remember to. Just trying to decide what to do with it, its been in his back yard since the 80's.

Actual name was Whiteman helicopter training stand. I had one of those way back when.. Actually bolted at Concept 30DX to it and proceded to fry the motor trying to get it to actually work like it was supposed to. Nice thing about it was you could use it in your driveway, backyard, whereever. A pain to haul to the field.

The simulator obsoleted the training stand.

It'd make a good work stand for tinkering with your heli.

I literally never use the word literally right.

It acutally looks very good for tuning your heli... No matter what it will not lift that piece of metal up

It's a Whiteman Heli Traing stand. A flying buddy back in the day had one. I used it to train him and it worked. There a simple rope/chain that limited the amount of tilt the heli could pivot. You could also limit the yaw.

The stand was countered balanced so that the heli did not carry any training gear weight. The training gear allowed the heli to go up and down (throttle/collective control), pitch and roll to a certain limit and also pivot around 360 degrees.

At that time there was also a CSM simulator.

Times have changed.

fung_kyle,

Not sure what you are talking about or if you even have the knowledge to make such comment.

The Whiteman Heli Training stand was countered balanced. The heli did not lift the weight of the Training Stand.

kcordell and Girard have it right.

I worked at a LHS and they had one that a customer wanted help with. Used it with his Concept 30 and it worked quite well for what it was designed. There was also The Dave Brown sim, which was the original, Icarus, with the CSM being the best at the time. It was bulky and messy from the oil from exhaust. I would clean it up and someday a collector will want it.

It works, but it is easier to uses 2 arrow shafts or dowels with wiffle balls and sim. If you are lucky enough a buddy box with a patient instructor.

If you didn't understand that... You'd need to go back to school...

I meant it is a GOOD tool to TUNE your OWN DARN helicopter. It you can DO whatever YOU want to your HELICOPTER without IT taking off on YOU.

Not trying to induce any punches here, but perhaps some of us can't read between the lines in the above quote.

Go back to School ?

Maybe today's English class don't teach the kids how to express their thoughts so as not to assume what the author is talking about.

Well what can I expect when all these kids write is, LOL, IDK, IMO, .... BRB.

Oh, I almost forgot ...... DEE DEE DEE !!!

Say whatever you want. I don't care. If you were near me I don't know about it. I might go grocery shopping for some eggs and bring them to your house and paint with it.
