    So, if you recorded that as 1320 or less when the airplane was licensed, you can operate it as LSA. If you licensed it at 1400, it can never be operated as LSA.

    Pretty simple. Not what a lot of...

    Watch the video, it clearly shows where the rotor hit the door. Duh. Why you’d leave a hangar door open with a helicopter lifting off even close is beyond me.
