I was hoping the proud parents would post some pictures of their offspring.
The Carlinator wasn't actually "born" this weekend, it was more or less, baptised.
It had been a flying lost sheep who found the way before the January 2008 deadline.

Iím one of the lucky ones to recently have their machine delivered by Tom OB/GYN Milton.
My name is Bob Heimberger and Iím fairly new the gyro sport. I hanger my PPC with Darren Twellman in St. Louis, so I got a lot of exposure to the Magni. Eventually, I flew a few hours with Greg G. and that was all it took. I ordered my M16 kit last September. The Kit arrived March 22 and I completed the assembled May 10 with 300 hours build time.
I hoped to have it at the Doc Finn fly-in; however, the trailer I had arranged for was too small. Tom was kind enough to detour to St. Louis after the fly-in and complete my inspection. (Thanks again Tom)
I will continue my training with Greg G and hope to be soloing very soon.

Very nice gyro. Congratulations on the quick build. I think you beat Stan's build time. Keep us posted on your lessons and keep posting photos. Do you know how many Magni's are flying in the US? It can't be very many.

Congrats. Good job Sir.
I have flown Magni M16 and love it.
Its sounds like being a sarrogate mama.

The build time was short, but keep in mind, the ship came painted from the factory. I saw Stanís SH in person at the fly-in last weekend. What a beautiful job he did. The Magni was a very easy build, and thatís good because Iím not nearly the craftsman that many of the builders are on this forum.
I ran the engine for the first time yesterday and hope to see it fly later this week. Iím not sure of the exact number of Magniís in the US but the FAA records show a total of 7; 6 M-16ís and 1 M-14.
I posted a little larger pic of the aircraft and interment panel.

I didn't intend to downplay Stan's build. I realize his project involved a lot more craftsmanship and was more complicated. He finished his in a very short time for a Sparrowhawk. Good luck with your training and happy flying.
