    Good day. I just googled an old bird of mine... N122LH. I am the 2nd owner. I knew the original builder well. It was stored in his machine shop for a few years. He began training, but never completed it. I am the one who purchased the Boyer stab. I owned her for about a year, wanted to get her flying and get training. Unfortunately, not many folks in Lynchburg VA could support me. I reluctantly sold her for much less than I saw for the current sale price. My desire is now a Mosquito or Helicycle. I believe that there are many more options for training and support.

    By the way, I am a licensed PVT pilot in SEL and glider. Glider check ride was on my 16th and SEL was on my 17th. 53 now. I welcome any questions that you may have. I'll give you as accurate information as I can.

    Thanks, Mike! You do show up in my Friends List, so it works on this end. I respect your gyro knowledge, and greatly appreciate your sharing with us (and me).
    Cheers, Kolibri

    I'd like to accept your request as a friend, or what ever, but when I click on accept nothing happens. No matter if you have any questions and if I can help it doesn't matter if we're officially "friends" or not I'll always try to answer.

    Your discussion with Mike 484 is interesting, I always found Butt's posts confusing, the Mike 484 story comforts me in the opinion I was forming.

    Wow, sounds pretty shabby. He didn't even try to arrest your forward stick? Bummer, Mike, sorry. Thanks for the heads up; I won't be doing any training with him.

    You asked who the CFI was that was trining me when we rolled over my RAF.

    Desmon Butts

    He came out to our hangar one day and asked me if I wanted to go flying and get some training in my RAF. We took off and landed about 3 times, then he asked to take the controls, we did another take off and landing, then I took it back and did another go around. When we landed we almost came to a stop but the blades went forward too soon and pulled us over. He walked away and has never done anything to make it right. I am only a student, he is a CFI, I feel that the CFI has a responsibilty to his student to assure the student and machine are safe, I never asked for anything and have rebuilt he machine, but I think he should have done something.

    He advertises that he trains and test flys in many machines that he actually knows nothing or very little about, I think he is a very dagerous CFI as he does not admit to what he doesn't know but rather trys to BS his way through.
