I know what you mean. They fixed it with the H160C update

Haha this made me laugh probably more than it should have. I suppose a tail wheel would be great for protecting the fenestron from ground strikes

The H160 seems very large (much larger than expected) in person on the ground. The H160 (and also the H175 to a lesser degree) seem very tall and almost top heavy. But like AeroAmigo said, it looks much better in the air.

Hey regular H160 fans! Still no HOGE charts to share? It'll be just our little secret...

They are only available in the e-RFM, which is an App, so not even charts per se, but output values from the variable inputs.

I carried out some “due diligence” in this respect on a particular airframe that came up for sale and discovered that it had apparently been flying with its first owner for two years with the C of G over 4” outside the aft limit!

This made no sense whatsoever. I suggested the aircraft was re-weighed and discovered that the factory figures in the tech log were very much incorrect. Having done that and re-calculated, the actual C of G was actually right in the centre of the envelope.

No harm done but it just shows that no one else had bothered to actually check the weight and balance, even at the factory.

When our first 175’s were weighed by our own engineers on arrival the CofG figures were found to be different to the AH supplied figures. Fortunately in our favour as it bought the CofGs forward.
