Narrative:
The pilot carried out a planned series of short holiday flights for family celebration guests. At the 14th flight, shortly after takeoff, when the helicopter was transferred to a horizontal flight, the pilot noticed that the speed indicators of the carrier rotor and the engine were at the top red line. The pilot decided to immediately make a "safe" landing on the field he had before him. After landing, he checked the instruments, checked the functionality of the helicopter and returned in a small circle to the take-off point. It then appeared that the tail boom had suffered serious damage.
It appeared the main rotor blades had struck the tail boom.
