Don't forget crashability when you built a gyro!
(don't forget to read the warning!) :eek:

andre, i think I am very crashable :D
Dont forget to take out your fingers from your nose on landings !! :D :D :D

I didn't mean trashable!

i feel inclined to words of wisdom :
"Si les hommes ne devaient parler qu'en connaissance de cause, un silence de mort tomberait sur la terre. "
'if men only should talk about what they really know, a deadly silence should fall on earth"
"Le vrai secret de la vie est de s'intéresser à une chose profondément et à mille autres choses suffisamment. "
"the real secret of life is to be interested to one thing intensively and to 1000 others enough"
"On sait que le propre du génie est de fournir des idées aux crétins une vingtaine d'années plus tard."
"the particularity of a genius is to give ideas to idiots 20 years later"
"L'homme évite habituellement d'accorder de l'intelligence à autrui, sauf quand par hasard il s'agit d'un ennemi."
"the man usually avoids to recognize the other's intelligence, excepted when it is an enemy"
"on reconnait un génie à sa capacité à unir contre lui un nombre considérable de crétins"
"a genius can be recognized byt it's ability to unite against him a remarquable amount of idiots"
A man can be destroyed, but not overcome.

"on doit economiser son mépris, il y a tellement de necessiteux"
"we must save our contempt, there are so much needy ...."

you miss some sense of humour, andre

I see that you want to contribute actively to this thread!...What do think it could be done to make the gyro safer in case of a crash? i know that you have good ideas (a little pomad doesn't hurt!...). :D

well, just mad ideas :
- a spheric airbag (tested yet for free falls and aplinists)
- a chute hanging the nose, the tail crumpling smooths schock
- real shock proof tanks
- prop and rotor stoppers (strong rods pushed through)
- smaller and lighter rotors
- ducted props
- sandwich or honeycomb airframes
- high dampened langing gears ( for vertical crashes)
- upper rudder part "breakable" to allow a "first alert" without loosing yaw
- a spring poisitionned rotor
- a gyroscopic stab
- an emergency rocket prerotator to regain rpm
- an engine dropper (lighter, less inertia)
- a good gyro
- a good pilot
- a good engine
- a good F***
- live in alaska
- be dead yet
- be poor
- not to fly
- say the aerial controller he is a D...head
- a book from ron hub-bar
- not a RAF
- the joke of the day
- salp and pepper
- mmmm goood

Not bad Victor, you are not as mad as you think... I recall what is very important:
- real shock proof tanks;
- sandwich or honeycomb airframes;
- high dampened langing gears ( for vertical crashes)...
All that can be inspired by some mature mechanical sports (car races F1, hydrofoil races...).
For F1 races, the cockpit can sustain a 200 kmh crash! it is made of composite-carbon-honeycomb like material...

Not bad Victor, you are not as mad as you think
thanks andre, thanks to allow me to not underestimate my self :D :D
there's a thread about high carter struts here, check it.
carbon honeycomb > light > expensive > not easy to repair > breaks in chucks
i think epoxy/foam/epoxy can be a good compromise.
why do you think i designed my airframe with that ;)
