There is one for sale currently in Washington State, I believe a guy could pick it up for around 200k. Not a bad price at all considering. The throttle is rigged like any turbine helicopter, you have 3 positions, idle cutoff, start/ground idle, and flight idle, the rest is automatic as you add collective. As you get ready to lift off, you roll the throttle to flight idle, then fly, and you never move the throttle from flight idle postition until you land and go to ground idle for cool down, then to cut-off to shut down. simple as that. PM me or email me, and I can give you a contact to find out about the 12E/T for sale in WA.
