    Hey Steve everything's going fine. i I have been working on the gyro lately I rolled It over and tore up the Main blade .prop and tail.everything else is ok just hurt my pride a little bit. But I will be bringing it up to Mentone this year. Are you going to be there? I'll be staying in the camper area I've got a slide in camper for my truck.

    Hi Steve. I hope you can answer my question about my SparrowHawk. My rotorhead pitch swivel assembly has a little slop in the slider pin. I can twist the torque tube back and forth and there is a little slop in it. Is it okay to have a little or do I need to buy a new one. Where do I get parts now that AAI is gone? You gave me a ride at Mentone 2004 while I was there with my friend Bill Finnegan. That's when I ordered my kit from Al Waddill. Thanks, Gerry

    Hi Steve,

    My name is Dan and I live in Chattanooga. I'd like to talk to you about gyro training, maybe a few lessons on some weekend to start.

    hello Steve,

    Do you still have the Sparrowhawk and RAF's for sale? If yes, would you please provide some further information, specifically: n-number(s); ttl hours airframe/powerplant; any accident/incident history; fit-out; as well as any photos you may have, particularly those showing the quality of construction and maintenance. finally, of course, your asking price(s).

    Its probably easiest to contact me directly at:,

    best regards,

    I was told that you could get parts off the shelf at NAPA stores.. Now I don't know whether its true or not...

    And no,, the only trouble I have ever had with my setup is the damper disk.

    Let me know how you do with it..

    Hi Steve,
    I distroyed the planetary gear, ring gear and sun gear in my Ross redrive. Have you had any problems with yours, and if so did you figure out how to disassemble the gear box?
    Thanks Steve Mc Lennan
