Let's not forget about the glovebox for that extra pack of smokes or legal type paperwork :D

And last but not least....Who could fly anything without the everpopular "Ashtray?" That's Right! On "Screw-Air," Every flight is "SMOKING!" :eek:

COOL! I love it when a plan comes together!

the Skull guy on the front.... Had that guy been alive he would have been one ugly dude.

That reminds me of the 82nd Airborne logo "Death from Above".
That won't help any with the gyro's "outlaw image" but who cares!

Very cool. Did you sketch the original design?

No I didn't sketch the design. The Skull with wings is a logo I had made up years ago through a sign shop in south georgia for a model flying club called, "Rolling Hyenas." Their motto, Tantum Pecunia. Every member of the club sports this logo on vehicles or whatever.
The people that painted my gyro new a guy that does airbrushing, and I gave him the pod with the logo and a few ideas. 2 weeks later.....Here it is!
I had no idea the amount of detail the guy would put into the skull. We did discuss flames, but it was decided that the "Experimental" wouldn't stand out if we did. I am very pleased and suprised at the job that was done.

Did you take a photo without that logo for your insurance application?
05-18-2004, 08:26 PM
Insurance? Who can afford that? You mean that one co. that offers a little protection for 2k per year?
Yeah I did.

What I sent you (Skull & wings) is all I had, and that's also what I sent the paint guy.
I had no idea it would turn out like that. When I posted these pics, was the first I'd ever seen it too.
Were you ever able to put it on the Chapter 34 website?
