  • Gather round boys and girls I have a story to tell...first off I'm the kind of person that notices things most people don't, I'm a "what if" kinda guy I like to take answers to questions to the extreme. In case you haven't noticed...and I like to connect dots from things and stories that you would never see a connection to...


    That said before I tell you my story about how helicopter tail rotors and slingshot brake systems are connected I have a few questions I need answered by people that actually know the answered because you know or have done these things...if you don't know the answer I don't want any guesses or conjecture.


    I need specific facts...


    #1 the banjo washers...what are they copper, rubber or what?
    #2 I know you are not supposed to reuse the washers, has anybody reused them successfully?
    #3 have you ever cleaned the sensors and put them back in and have that work without tripping the failure light?
    #4 was the mysterious black stuff metal particles or rubber or could you tell what it was?
    #5 was you brake fluid exceptionally dirty with mysterious black stuff or metal particles?


    Ok get back to me so I can finish my story...

  • Look, I'm asking these questions Because I have not personally done them. And I guess since every other person on this site is a genius and I'm the only idiot I couldn't possibly know the cause?


    I just thought of one more question....if you did clean and change the sensors did you have to bleed the brake system or can you put them back without bleeding?


    FYI I had a conversation with my neighbor an ex military helicopter mechanic and I told him about the catastrophic brake failure problem...he told me a story that makes perfect sense and I think we could fix the problem ourselves without buying new sensors every week...if anyone is still interested knock off the crap and answer the questions for me...

  • .....must have eaten too many paint chips as child, maybe lived under powerlines, lived near a leaky reactor, was dropped as an infant, who knows.....


    If you are in fact a guy that notices things most don't and can tell us a story about how helicopter tail rotors and Slingshot brakes are put together then why should any of us waste our time or knowledge answering questions a guy of your caliber can find out for himself?

    When life knocks you down, calmly get back up, smile, and very politely say, "You hit like a bitch!"

    This is why I love this place.
