There are nav lights on the horizontal tail which cover the standard degree of view.. I think those on the underside are for viewing from directly ahead of the helicopter and from directly behind. I don't know why from behind as that can be confusing for any approaching pilot but the white positioning marker and the rotating beacon on top of the tail, should make it perfectly clear to a rear approaching pilot what he is dealing with. Hope this helps.

Yes as Don explained idea behind half covering is exactly that those position lights are visible from the front and from rear, but not from side.


I was checking both Police Jet rangers S5-HPE and S5-HPD and both have same half lights coverings mounted.













Have a bandit day

The metal side plates on the lower nav lights are apart of the BHT / AA float kit, to stop the glare from the lights hitting the floats, while still visable from the front, plus the lower lights are only on float equiped heli's as the type cert with the floats on, did not meet the full spectrum that the cert requires regarding on what angles the nav lights must be visable to other aircraft.
Hope that info helps, great build project you have going

I'm still puzzled. With the metal plates shaped the way they are, doesn't that mean that each individual of the two lights is seen from the opposite side (green from the left, red from the right), while the metal plates prevent them from being seen from the "correct" side (red from the left, green from the right)?
I'm sure I must be misunderstanding something here, but I wonder what it is.

That is how the real heli kit instructions are. I too, remember asking the tech rep the same question 20+ years ago, it is all to do with what the side on coming aircraft see's, you are only allowed one nav light visable from the side, hence these are diffrent locations, in a banking turn you may not see the top light, and if the lower light was hidden by the float you would not see any?, but you will see the opposite light, but if the colours are the same, then you would be seeing the wrong light? that is why they put them that way, straight and level, head on you would only see the top lights, not the lower one.
It still sound confusing, but that what is in the BHT, SI. I do not have access to the SI at home, but can look it up at work.
It tells you to install them that way, not why!!

Finally had some time to work on my Jet Ranger. Seats were developed from 0,5mm glass fiber sheet,..























Some trimming still needed, but I like the outcome so far. Have to install light wires, than I can glue everything with epoxy to the fuselage


Enjoy,


Peter

Looking good!
I'm a little surprised, though, that the Jet Ranger does not seem to have two separate, distinct seats bolted to the floor, but something that more or less resembles a bench with two upholstered seats on it. Doesn't that result in the collective stick being at a very uncomfortable height? I never sat in any real helicopter, but I imagined that the left arm is pretty much dangling down to somewhere near the thigh when grabbing the collective stick, instead of the elbow being bent at 90 degrees.

Nice sharp lettering, are you making your own stencils?


Great job!
