    Wing walking on a heli is hazardous. Better on a bi-plane.

    According to Malcom McDowell in "Blue Thunder," you cannot roll a helicopter. HH

    I'd be sick all over the cockpit.

    I flew a Messerschmitt-Bölkow-Blohm Bo 105 when I was assigned to the Test Board, but the evaluation profile I flew was far different from this. ;)

    For helicopter guys, it shudders quite a lot coming out of translational lift, every place else in its flight envelope is peaches.

    Technically correct.
    The MBb skirts this issue with a massive piece of titanium sculpture...a true piece of art. This central hub makes the blades tremendously ridged. No lead/lag, no flapping...so everything that happens to the main rotor blades also happens to the rest of the helicopter.
    Just don't crash one. They burn even more spectacularly than they fly.
