I had an idea about these things. The height of the mast on Ken Wallis’s design was a lot shorter than the modern ones.
Plus, the rotor was smaller, about 20 ft I think.
It occurred to me that Ken’s version would have less pendulum effect, so less likely to pitch over, which was a big problem.
Any thoughts on that?
