The tail rotor contacted a small bush during training involving landings on sloping ground. Examination of the tail rotor revealed minor damage and the tail rotor was replaced. The instructor stated that, although he was aware of the bush, he incorrectly assessed its position and distance from the tail rotor. The bush has been trimmed.
