Guys, just want your opinion on this.
I was flying my Radikal G20 the other day (it flies really good BTW) and noticed that when I landed and after I shut off the engine, the blades and main gear as well as tail drive gear were all free wheeling just as it would if doing and auto. So I began to think, what then is the point of a one way bearing if the drive system uses a clutch that disengages from the engine and the whole thing spins freely then? Now the one way bearing and the drive system are working perfectly with no binding and are very smooth. I can see that there could be a situation when doing an auto and during the flare that the rotor would actually spin faster than what the idling engine would but the iding engine would not be spinning the clutch fast enough to cause it to grab the clutch bell and slow the main gear. So how do you think a heli with a smooth clutch system work with a main gear that is hooked up to the main shaft directly? what would be the potential Problems? I have been flying for only 2 years but have a background in design and this has been bugging me, maybe I don't see what others do, so give me some ideas.
