    What would you say would be a minimum length for a gyro runway to clear 50 ft.??

    Didn't you add an aux tank like Ed has?
    Behind the seat?
    I've also added one.
    But now my hang test shows I'm nose down.
    I don't mind making new cheek plates, I'm just surprised I may need to.
    P.S. Say 'hi' to Laura.

    My name is Ken Fietz, webmaster for I had an idea that might help with PRA membership (no idea if it will work) and contacted Tim O'Connor. He thought it was a good idea and I am trying to get this little production together. The idea being to make a YouTube video as an interview- about what PRA is and why one should join... I have contacted Tim Chick, who has kindly agreed to shoot and produce the clip, I have offered to conduct the interview and post it on my website (at no cost to anyone). What I need is an interview subject- I was hoping for the Chapter President of Sunstate ( 1st choice) but if he is physically unable or not wishing to do this - would you or someone else in the chapter be willing to participate?
    Planning so far is to conduct the shoot during Bensen Days, Friday and maybe Saturday.
    You can contact me here or by

    Thanks so Much,

    Where is your property in FL? Would it be the Eagles Nest, near Georgetown? I have a place in Georgetown and am interested in a "ultralight and gyro friendly" air field. Thanks,

    Hi Joe,
    I have been discussing this with Trez Vining for several weeks. I have only ordered and received the very same wheel (Darnell 64) with the same hardness paint dot (?) that Dick used for the last 35 years (he did experiment around with cheaper though)
    If there was any change, it was the folks at Darnell. I will give them a call. My distributor said to be certain that we are dealing with wheels of the same age. They will harden with age. Tom

    Hi JR,

    I first post my pics to a free website called Then they provide me with a button that has the syntax to use on the forum.

    as an example this phrase inside of a forum post will display one of the pictures in my online photo album. Remove the word joes from the begining of the /img statement


    If this isnt clear start by going to and creating an album. Then I will show you to do it if its still not clear.

    Laura and I miss you guys too.

About Me

    Total Flight Time
    325 ish solo gyro
    Superwhite 582
    I longed to fly since I was in my early 20s but found one reason after another why I couldnt. Then at age 55 I realized it was now or never. I booked an introductory flight with my wife in a powered parachute and had decided to buy one before I left the field. I now own a Ultrawhite Dominator. I trained dual place gyro with David Seace. I have about 200 Solo flights in my dominator now.
