Aerobatic pilot Chuck Aaron attached a GoPro to the rotor head assembly on his MBB Bo 105 helicopter in order to capture what the blade would look like during each rotation in slow motion. Aaron shot the footage at 240 fps and slow it down to a hypnotic 30 fps on the first attempt.
I put a GoPro on my Rotor Head Assy so you can see exactly what a Main Rotor Blade does on EVERY revolution in the experimental BO-105 helicopter. (Shot at 240fps slowed to 30fps)
A few weeks ago, I shared a video where I put a GoPro on my Rotor Head Assy so you could see exactly what a Main Rotor Blade does on EVERY revolution. Got a lot of questions, so we decided to make a few different videos showing what happens at different stages
Aaron also captured footage of the blade revolution while flying upside down.
Here’s a gorgeous photo of the helicopter from the exterior.
