    Hi my friends, My buddy Carl Rinker from Wenatchee Wa. got interested in Gyrocopters back in 2010 went with me to El mirage 2011 for the Ken Brock Freedom flyin, Carl had Purchased a Bensen B8m that had taken a hard landing in early 2011 with hope of fixing her back up to flying condition. Last year carl was forced to sell his house and asked me to keep his gyro at my place well since then carl has developed cancer and has had several surgeries and is going through chemo therapy.

    I designed a electronic ign, that goes on Mac 72-90 eng, and the one on my Mac 90 runs with NO shut off's at all. The Mag that I had on it, didn't work so well. It kept on sutting off, so I built a better one and I am in the process of patten pending on it. Pretty cool isn't it? We Mac owners must improve our engines in order to survive the sky. I don't want to crash when my points in my Mag quit firing. SO tell me if U are interested in this. OK ? I have pictures of this on my engine and web page. Thanks and keep on flying.

    My B8-M has a Mac 90 and Rick Whittridge's electronic ignition. I'm just now flying the length of the runway, just off the ground. Getting a feel for the stick - it's real sensitive. Soon as I can keep her level for the length of the runway, I'll work on S-turns, as shown in Ken Brock's 2nd instructional video. I've read Marion Springer's crow-hop lesson about 5 times now - and learn something new every time. My instructor is Ed Newbold, here in central Ohio

    Hi Mark, I'm sorry I haven't replied sooner. Sue and I went to Alaska for 12 days. I like David as an instructor, but he's been unavailable for training since last fall, I don't know if it's personal, I thought we got along great while training, maybe I spooked him or something. Anyway I would recommend him if he's available. Russ

    I was wondering if anyone could help me in locating the OLD TYPE 4" brake drum style with a 1" hole and no ball bearings in it. It bolts together with 5 bolts. It is a 8" rim. If anyone has one for sale or just get an up grade, then I would like too have it. Thanks.
