I now have my aircraft back from Hampton Roads Helicopters with the D’Shannon Baffle Kit installed. I flew it back from Virginia today to my home airport, Easton, Maryland (ESN).
Nate Steigenga and his folks at HRH did a FABULOUS job. Apart from the attention to detail shown during the project, the performance of the kit vis-à-vis my engine/cylinder temps exceeded my wildest expectations. My number 6 would regularly bump above 400F on climb-out, even in relatively modest temperatures such as we had here today (roughly 55F).
During climb-out today, I could not get the number 6 cylinder to go above 315 – at full throttle! During cruise, I saw an across the board 70-80 degree drop in my normal cruise cylinder temps.
In short, I could not be more pleased.
Thanks for the great product and the equally great installer recommendation.
