Me too. He didn't have one on his site for my T176. We traded one set of emails and he made me one on a Sunday night and had it in the mail Monday morning. Awesome product and ridiculously over the top customer service.
I lost count. We were doing a maximum performance take off (nose down, tail up, collective up in your arm pit, riding the max torque) out of Bamburg Germany in 1993 when it let loose. All I can remember is looking up at the PIC CW4 Spielman, and seeing him fixating on a smoke stack on the horizon. Ever time we went around his head kept swiveling to keep his orientation. He kept the bird upright until we hit. Typically they roll over when spinning. The tail boom smacked the side of a building, then a light pole, wrapping it around the right side of the aircraft. When we hit the ground, all hell broke loose. The transmission broke free and went right-forward (3rd pic) until the blades contacted the green house (green windows above the pilots) and lucky for me, I had the shield down on my SPH-4 helmet. Glass went everywhere. We all walked away from it. Felt very lucky after that. The post crash investigation reviled that the #1 hanger bearing retainer failed. Basically the drive shaft to the tail rotor has joints in it. They are like flat flanges with teeth on them. They slide on splines with a spring behind them to keep them engaged. The keeper behind the coupler spring on the first joint came out. Aircraft destroyed due to a $5.00 part.....
Beat it to fit, paint it to match!
