The pic I posted this morning shows it partially disassembled on a maintenance trailer. Here, the same components are installed:

It looks like a brake caliper and rotor
WINNER, WINNER!
The first pic is with the rotor brake disc removed, showing new brake pistons on the Main Rotor Gear Box (transmission).
The 2nd pic is shown with a new brake rotor and the transmission is installed in the Huey.
Good call Candyman, good call.

I worked on Chinooks , they had brakes on the wheels , not the transmissions.

Yep, Hueys are some strange ducks! Imho Bell engineers are afraid to talk to any other Aviation engineers..they have there own way of doing everything! Nothing is by standard Aviation practices.
The rotor brake was an extreme requirement on the 2 blade though. A 2 blade cobra has the longest blades used on any helicopter. Without a rotor brake, it could easily topple over during wind down..Yet Bell kept the system on the 4 blade????

I'd like to have a print of that pic they used for the thumbnail for that video.
This is the first time I've ever heard of the 2 teams flying together.
