Nice shots and pretty country, Caribbean Chuck. Thank you for sharing with us. I see it's hazy there this time of the year also. But at least it's white haze.

Very nice Chuck.
How do you find the rotor shake with the Raf blades on the stiff mast?
06-22-2004, 03:38 PM
I have taken down the blades and repair the crack a zillion of times. on each time I have balance and aligned them. I have adjusted it to a hair on the rotor. all this said You dont feel it much in the air. If you let the stick go the movement left and right is around 6 inches total 3 on each side.
compare to what I seen in some 2 seat gyros I think mine dont shake.
Now I am confortable? No I want to try the averso but they dont come in 30' and I want the sportcopter but budget is still low.
now my blades seem to have too much pitch I fly at 270 to 290 single seat and 300 full gross. my vsi stick to 1k to 1500 feet per minute but cruse is 60 to 65 in rought air and 70 in smotth air.

Ok Chuck. The Oz blades that I fly do not move the stick at all. I now realise that I don't have to put up with stick shake worse than 1/8th of and inch!!!!!
I am hoping to be able to try a set of SC blades during the next few months, so will be able to compare them to the Oz blades. The owner of these SC blades has offered me a loan of the SC while I give him some training. A great deal for me to try SC blades without the cost.

I will be looking foward to your test. I will try to take a video of the gyro stick in flight. plus more footage.
