      Hi All, I though the following may be of interest.   Researching Bell Helicopters recently I stumbled across the Jet Jeep helicopter built by the American Helicopter Company in the 1950s. I’m not aware if the Jet Jeep has been mentioned on this JOC site so thanks to Wikipedia I quote and paraphrase the following.   “The American Helicopter XH-26 Jet Jeep was an experimental rotor tip jet helicopter developed in 1951 by the American Helicopter Company to meet a United States Army and Air Force request for a collapsible and air-droppable observation helicopter. The specification called for a lightweight, one-man unarmed helicopter that had to be collapsible, capable of aerial delivery to troops in rugged terrain, and assembled quickly with simple tools. When collapsed, its five-by-five foot by fourteen foot container could fit on a trailer that could be towed by a military Jeep. It could be assembled by two men in just 20 minutes.   American Helicopter chose the name "Jet Jeep", because the XH-26 could be used like a Jeep, but in the air. It could be transported by a Jeep, and even used the same fuel. The XH-26 could be dropped by air and assembled and be ready for flight in 20 minutes.    Unfortunately, whilst the helicopter itself proved to be successful the Army turned it down due to its rotor tip jets proving too noisy; it didn’t offer safe autorotation; and in the end it proved too costly, so only five test and trial machines were built.” For more info Google Jet Jeep or search Wikipedia. All the best Chris Redford

      I have a Flat Splicer and a Fast Fid on order 😁 No fancy colours or anything like that. Just want to go down the closed winch system route.

      Ah yes - limited stock - maybe you've opted for a fancy pants ultrahook in a fancy pants colour 😁 👍
    • TazMann
