As for the "selfie stick" I believe it's a Anemometer and/or Anemoscope. This device will measure air speed and since it swivels up and down I would bet that it also measures the pitch angle of the aircraft as related to the surface of the earth. I would think this same info will be use for calculating firing solutions. Now all this is just a guess as I'm not an excerpt by any means.

:v

Pitot is the airspeed, this would be the AoA, Angle of Attack. I'd be interested to learn why it's installed like that, maybe it's a need to know thing though.

Like I said I was just throwing something against the wall to see what sticks. I couldn't think of "AoA"/Angle of Attack"...I guess I've been out of the business too long now...kinda makes me sad a little.... :(

Anywho...found a aftermarket company that makes 1/35th scale external fuel tanks for AH's....HyperScale Write Up.

Has anyone ever done business with Warners Wings?

Project creep is already starting... :facepalm

Werner's Wings are very well done products for helos. Only thing was my pruchase of their Mi-24 products proved my reference was better than theirs! My OH-6 stuff was closer to accurate than the Hind items.

The item is an ADS. Excerpt from the manual describing its functions:

Most helos also have a separate pitot tube.

Thanks Saul

I bought from Werners wings once but never used the parts. He is/was a helo pilot so knows his stuff. I didn't know he had Hind parts though. Saul's ref is interesting and good info for the "selfie stick" :)
