Brilliant. Although I suppose even in a cinema they could never get across the horrendous noise of the tipjets.

A quote at the time was the noise was reduced from painful to unbearable. I believe it was something like 60dba at 200 metres in the 1k band. To put some context the dba scale is exponential and the average noise of an open plan office is 25dba in the 1k band at 1m.

 

Tommo.

Blimey, I have just posted my finished model  of this in RFI, could have done with that nice close up of the rotor head about 8 months ago. Nice to see though.
