General Helio Discussion / How many revolutions per minut...
Last post by Rais - June 21, 2024, 07:28:55 AM
Tell me, is it possible to fly the Helio N-395 at 2400 or 2200 rpm and does this make sense in order to save gasoline and engine life?!
Judging by the answers here, everyone flies at 2600 arr.
In the Manual for the GO-480 engine there is the following diagram:You cannot view this attachment.

Helio Aircraft for Sale / Re: Helio on Craigslist

I am  kind of  surprised to see it for  sale. The current owner Tom is a friend and he got some parts from me a few months ago. He has been working on it for  some time.  This plane was in Burns , Oregon for years  sitting outside. I tried to  buy it from the  previous owner ,but he was a bit of a recluse,and could never make  direct  contact. I haven't seen it since it sat in Burns.

OK. Thanks for the clarification. I have not seen any Helios with screws attaching the covers in the wingtip. Most of the time they have the panel with the piece in the middle of the panel that slides up to secure the panel, or they have the panels that pop in place like on a Citabria/Cub etc.

Thanks. I am not referring the the panels on the aileron but rather the ones onboard and outboard of the aileron

To answer your question, all Helio ailerons have the same access covers that are attached with one screw per cover. These covers are not standard.

Additionally, this isn't a 1200 series. It is a 391B.

I guess this is another alternative to consider when switching over from the Goodyear Crosswind setup that I currently have.
