There's a lot of Helicopter stuff that George and Trip put on the NAR website. It's a "best of" what digital resources are available. I hope George takes the time to add more in this thread.

The story of Art Rose and the Rose-a-Roc is also there in Craig Beyer's article:

I completed my Mini A Heli two days ago. The kit is all of Level 3 IMHO. Trying to not cut all the way through the rotors is a challenge. I was successful on two of the rotor blades
You can only do so much with a multi-language pictorial instructions. You will need to study them carefully. Kinda reminds me of the Quinstar
I attached two additional photos showing some issues with the rotor laser cut balsa sheet. The photo near the hub shows an extra "bump out" that needs to be removed. More serious is the photo of the rotor tips showing two of the laser etched marking lines are wrong. Copy the rotor marking line on the rightmost rotor.
I'm flying this May 5 weather permitting. Hopefully all the snow will be gone by then
I'll let you know how it flies.

As we discussed you laser cut balsa sheet was cut incorrectly. It appears the sheet of wood moved during the cutting process. I'm happy to see you were able to work around this issue.
