I have a similar one.
They are very expensive to run.
I mean very expensive. Mine is 17 years old
Now and it very temprental and works very rarely
It must have cost me in exess of £50000.
And from a performance point of view the
I have relpaced it with an electric one these are cheaper and more reliable.
Even though I have replaced it the old garage door opener
Continues to cost me money and heart ache
It is difficult to dispose of. I have sent it away
To the military and they have succeeded in making it better
But it is still costing me money.
So be careful think long and hard because
A garage door opener is for life not just for Christmas.

This is fitted to a BMW F but I'm sure it would also work on a K or R

That is very impressive! It would have to be in Australia? Don't forget they still chase sheep and big animals with small Robinson R44 helicopters....
I doubt that would ever be allowed in the UK..... I never flew like that in the RAF but the Army Air Corps is another story! They are a great bunch!
The Police helicopters were originally only flown by ex-AAC pilots, not RAF, as the AAC are trained to fly low... it then got to the point that no one wanted to fly helicopters as it did not pay well(!) but now they take anyone....
RN/FAA 'Junglies' are usually well furnished with brave pills too, covert insertion of RM booties requires flying between blades of grass using NVG; teenyweeny airways don't have a monopoly on helicopter mounted nutters.

I notice one of the regular sayings here is "Don't re-invent the wheel" why not....
