as i expected a wide range of input, some even intelligent.....I come from a part of the world where practicality is more often required, things are not always done by the book.
I'm not saying I condone it, personally I strive to remain within any limitations, thinking about not just the transmission, but the whole machine, especially the drive train, grips, spindles, feathering bearings, blades, TR d/s...the list goes on....and obviously the future pilots and more especially the future pax who use the machine........

however, back to my original question....surely there is a great deal less stress on all these components in lower disk loading / torque manouevers than others...

i'm interested in hearing from designers perhaps who have a working knowledge of the principles here....

also it would be nice if we could act a bit like grown ups and share some opinions, instead of casting petty aspersions.....
