08-13-2011, 03:02 PM
Well after a few weeks of flying the Gyronimo up and down the run way, Yesterday I decided to go around the pattern. All went very well, Nice flying machine. Turns,vertical descents,Power on into the wind hovers,climb and landings all very well. I really like this little machine. Nice job Ron Awad on this build, she flies very well and easy.
Also a big thank you is in order for Jon Carleton for sending me home with it.
Jeff Tipton from Dickson Co. Tn. took some pics and maybe he will post some soon, and Melissa got it on Video and she will send that to Jon,Maybe he can post a link for viewing.
In all a great day.

I was amazed at how slow it would fly, plus it folds up nice and small.

Billy you should not need any software to re-size the photos. The server re sizes them as they are uploaded

thanks Jeff for posting the pics,
when I try to post the pics, the max is 150.KB and it always is to big to upload. Gimp works great, I just need to download it again, I lost it when my computer crashed awhile back. thanks see ya soon.

Billy - try this -
Once installed - find your pictures in Windows Explorer, then just right click on the photo (or all the photos) you want to resize - "Resize Picture" pops up in the little right click menu.
Set it up correctly so it makes a renamed copy of the photo, so you keep the original AND get a smaller copy in the folder -
Far easier than having to open each one in photo editing programs. I'm very grateful to Mr Brice Lambson for producing this brilliant little piece of software! For free!
