Agree with Spunk
The pilot said that he attempted one approach to pad #4 but felt the onset of LTE (loss of tail rotor effectiveness) and aborted the approach and went around. He climbed the helicopter over the water, turned the helicopter back toward an easterly heading to the helipad and again felt the onset of LTE.
not learning from the first approach and doing exactly the same thing again is crass stupidity.
