thanks guys,
i am sure the designers accounted for the weight of the rotor system pressing down statically (and even low negative G's) but to have that extra weight up there...?
also, in a turn or flare wouldn't the loads increase in the direction of the blades rather than the skids?
and yes, damage to the cowls etc had occurred to me as did falling off, but in those cases the individual would likely have to fess up if either damage occurred or he hurt himself.
