Hello to all.
The Phenix team is proud to share with you the maiden flight trials with our new gyro.
We are very happy with the preliminar results.
It has been more than three years of hard work based on a dream, with a lot of people involved in it, moved by simple faith in the project.
Will keep you regurarily posted as the trials proceed.

I see you are using push-pull cables for the rotor control. I used them on my two-place build and was very happy with the outcome. I'd like to hear how they work for you as well.

Great achievement and nice work. It's also pleasing to see a tractor design among all the pushers around.

Thank you guys for all the nice words.
- Jon: It is the first time we use the push pull cables in our gyro designs but I must admit that they work great, smooth and effective.
- Tim Heilig and Skier: In principle we are going for factory built units only, but weŽll see how things turn out and take decissions after.
Also, this is our first tractor design and from what I have learnt and discovered, I will never build a pusher again!!!
