Just a update - I have a upcoming photoshoot (August - am held up as the R66 is not here yet - arriving at the end of July) for a mate of mine and his awesome Robinson R-Series helicopter fleet.... just a little bit of a rundown on the R-Series:
- R22 Beta II - a 2 seat lightweight utility helicopter, powered by a Lycoming O-360 360 cubic inch aircooled flat four cylinder engine with carburettor fuel delivery
- R44 Raven II - a 4 seat lightweight utility helicopter, powered by a Lycoming IO-540 540 cubic inch aircooled flat six cylinder engine with electronic fuel injection
- R66 Turbine - a 5 seat lightweight utility helicopter, powered by a Rolls-Royce RR300 turbine. The RR300 was specifically designed and built for the R66 Turbine and is a more compact version of the RR250-C20B used in the larger Bell JetRanger
Stay tuned for the first photos of our region's first R66!
