The Rocket (only 3 Rockets in US) - Fast, Furious and Handfull
Since a lot of you out there wanted to know whatever happen to the Henseleit Super Bird - The Rocket. It seems to be one of the sudden dropped off the face of the world. The truth is…yes it can!!! with an incredible headspeed.
Although you don't usually see this bird flying around in your local air field, in fact, the ROCKET is actually the first helicopter in the world with MFS (Moving Flybar System) Patented rotor head without pitch compensator with vertically movable flybar, by which extremely short distance between upper bearing and center hub. The big challenge with this machine was the complicated handling of the large engine - O.S140. And the fact that flying in the area with high-speed (100mph+) fly-barred head is very demanding and requires very sensitive fingers and extremely advance flying skills. I've flying The Rocket for a few years. Even now is still a handfull to operate.
