Narrative:
Shortly after takeoff from a television station helipad, the pilot became concerned about a loss of available power and conducted a precautionary landing on a road on the opposite side of a fence from the helipad. One of the two passengers disembarked and the pilot conducted a power check which appeared to be normal. During takeoff, the aircraft again experienced a loss of power and the pilot elected a second precautionary landing. The main rotor blades then struck the tail boom, resulting in substantial damage.
