Well, I am guessing it's nothing to do with reading the Bible too much...
So, is it a small hexagonal nut which holds the main rotor to the rotor mast?

I think it is possibly the hexagonal nut that holds the rotor blades in place and is probably called that for a very apt reason!! Smile

I think there is a story about a young Navy pilot and that is where it got it's name from.

It IS the top bolt out of the 3 in the head of a Robbo.

If it goes bang or falls out, all you can shout is Jesus!!!

I think that the 'cute' would have to be my wife as I don't think she would allow me to have anyone else of that nature in the heli with me!! lol

Of course I wouldn't mind you flying with a "cute"!! Are you sure TC didn't mean a "Chute"?! Confused

I know. Well at least I'm sure he must have meant that.
I was just having a pull of the old proverbial leg.
