He said, "significant".
MAAC 50249

Planes, Pedals, and Motorcycles! (In that order!)

I stopped being politically correct when I found out that some people were offended by it.

Well, judging by the number of times I have been "Advised" to go back where I came from I assumed I must have had a SIGNIFICANT effect on a large number of people.

I think I had one of those first helis, if this is the one your talking about. 70 or 71 Dubro Whirly bird. About 25 or 30 size motor mounted on top of the rotor blades with a normal prop on it. Torque reaction thingy. Blades were on a swivel with a weight on the end of a wire hanging down. faster it would go, it would go into coarser pitch. No gyros back then. needless to say it didn't last long The good old days. PCS radio.
Tried for my kamikazi pilots licence. Flunked the test.
