Tip cap attachment

Rotor Blade Balancing - Rotor & Wing Aviation Services - Rotor Track - Static and Dynamic Balance

John, See the attached link for a pictorial view of the tip cap attachment screw holes and underlying span tip weights. It can be seen that the tip cap could be conceivably lost in a tree strike and the tip weights not be affected….another great design feature…. obviously a lateral would develop in such an incident but certainly remain quite flyable.

cheers
