That particular system probably took me 5 days, roughly. Maybe 20-30 hours of actual work.

I'm very American. The Mi-8/17 is everywhere.

You're very welcome. I'm just happy that some people find those presentations useful. Besides my coworkers, I mean. Although they don't read them for fun like you guys do.

Thanks again AlphaOneSix!
I made a repository a while back, it is here: https://forums.eagle.ru/showthread.php?t=193976
