Chinook or coaxial?

Put the knot really close to the hook not attached to the rotor. This way it doesn't get caught.

I've yet to hear of anything higher than about 2:15 raw time.

Really? Was this with or without some of the bonuses (ie. time bonus/colored rotors)? During 4th block, I heard the highest time was around 3 minutes.

It was an FFM kit but obviously with a few modifications. I'm not sure what they did though...

*magic*

TBH it was probably a combination of a ~3.00g helicopter, optimal rubber, perfectly built everything, and well balanced rotors.
