Looking for stallion photos I found 1 of the opposite side while still in the salvage yard so thought I might as well post it and open it as #6 in the queue at the top of the 1st page

Now we have 30 pictures probably the most of any single HELIO.

I also found a couple links to stallion stuff previously posted but You find interested in looking at again

This article has been recently upated from information from Barry Collman except for the fact that after manipulating the photo of the Helio on display at  Boun Kak public park, Phnom Penh is c/n 016 sn (72-1333) enough of the tail number 21333 is left show it is c/n 016.

Any one know anything about this stallion N550TG and if it is going to be actively flying again.

I wonder if this civilian model with the Yokes is actually easier to fly if flown somewhat conservatively and not on the edge of the envelope than the military model with the sticks.

I only have a little time in pipers with a stick and found the models with a yoke were easier for me to fly.

Maybe Larry T has an opinion since He is probably the only one with recent experience.
Just curious.
