    Skeeter 5

    1953








    The Skeeter 5 was the result of intensive effort by SARO between late 1952 and Mar 1954 to solve the ground resonance issues which had plagued the Skeeter 3 and Skeeter 4.

    It incorporated improvements from the Skeeter 4, plus enhanced damping to the undercarriage and rotor blades, and the introduction of a steel rotor shaft.
