Three main rotor blades, three undercarriage legs, hang sight wheel low in the hover. It reminds me of the Bristol Sycamore,sycamor,sycamo,sycam, sycam syca syca syca Crunch.

Just joking.

I flew the Sycamore which had the same layout except it had a three bladed tail rotor.

Just think 'ground resonance' and it started.

Thank you!) Bristol Sycamore is the helicopter I never heard before - it was produced in 1947–1959 and is the first British-designed helicopter for Royal Air Force.

That is a beautiful Mi2. Is this a new machine built in Ukraine or restored.

What’s the pod on the side? Is it fuel or just storage compartment?

Hi Havick,

The pod on the side is a fuel tank. It is how the main tank like in Mi-2 was removed from helicopter cabin outside.

The Sycamore was a fine helicopter for its time...until instructors brought up on the Whirlwind in the 1960s tried to fly it,using Whirlwind methods! All the early helicopters could have resonance problems,including the Mi-2. Good luck with this rebirth though I fear the market will be very limited.

Thank you! You are right about the market as it is very limited but compare to Airbus helicopters MSB-2 Nadiya has a nice fuel consumption and affordable price. For example, compare to twin engine Eurocopter EC145 (cost 10mln USD per helicopter) which flight hour cost is around 1870 USD - MSB-2 Nadiya (cost 2mln USD per helicopter) flight hour cost - just 340 USD.

Of course it's factory fuel consumption indicators and in reality they will be higher but still the difference in the price of the flying hour is several times
