Lockheed created the first Helicopter SAS systems that are being recreated with electronics in our time and have for some time now.

I submit that Boeing Vertol's SAS system for the CH46 and CH47 series aircraft came before the Lockheed version..

But they aren't Rigid rotor systems like the Lockheed Birds.

Ur welcome. Chris is right but what I was getting at wasn't an absolute first just a first among many in that era. The 60's was an interesting period.

Take a look at how stable the prototypes and the 286's were. When I'm flying a full size the cyclic stick is constantly moving unless you are in forward flight and you can relax a little but on the Lockheed's that gyro controlled system is more like an FBL controller today. It levels at a touch of the stick and is virtually impervious to CG changes much like an FBL controller not to mention full aerobatic flight including inverted all in the mid 60's. How about that RC heli in the late 50's? Interesting times for sure.

So why don't you think that they have hover systems in small helos yet? You would think that we would see it. I am amazed how the Coast Guard helos can hold position in winds during sea rescues.

Those big Sikorsky's have SAS systems I would think.
