    Good to meet you at the Brock El Mirage fly-in. I was the shaggy gimp with Dudley, the big black poodle.

    The slow motion video of the rotors departing that gyro is the best example of stability comes from the aft loading at the rotor head I have ever seen. We talked about maintaining aft stick to provide stability on touch down / landing roll, but the video shows it beyond explanation. It even demonstrates what happens when a gyro, less rotors, is operated by someone just to see what it feels like. We had carnage and fatalities early on just taxing "a little bit" without the blades.

    Glad to see your instructing in gyros. Do you have experience in the old school Bensen / Brock configurations?

    I sent you an email that August 11 would work fine and about needing to go through the TSA if I am going to do a flight review for you. Call me at (805)680-9523

    Vance, looking for a sport pilot CFI course on DVD. Any suggestions. Just left Benson days, had a great time. Met Terry from Autogyro USA today at Sun n Fun, great lady. Was told my MTO has been shipped, pretty excited.

    Thank you Vance for the info on the oil testing. I will plan to add it to my list of procedures. I fly only ethanol free Mogas 90-93 octane and using a filter funnel wherever possible, with an occasional 100LL top up if I have no other option

    Hi Vance -

    Normally, would/should the rotor head be level, sde-to-side, when the stick is centered, side-to-side ?


    sadly, the manufacturer is not trustworthy, IMO. We nearly rolled her yesterday. Am asking for yer opinions, thots

    Hi Vance, Chris Burgess GYRO-CFI here. I still "cringe" when I read your posting a 180 turn in 52kt winds. You know if you maintain a constant indicated airspeed through out the whole turn, there is no difference in the turn. I suspect you lost airspeed in your turn and this is easily mistaken as a problem with downwind turns. Stan posted the "best" response, making a constant rate coordinated turn around a "free floating" balloon. You commented looking outside and seeing the nose pointing down. Under those conditions, you need to make "darn" sure your airspeed is constant as well as the bank angle. You also said you may have over compensated with rudder. This is also a contributor to a poorly coordinated turn and causing some of your airspeed loss. You're a good friend sir, please keep you personal limits a little lower rather then expanding them till you have an incident. Still love that gyro. Has Ed tried my "bank robbers mask" yet.?

    Hello Vance. Can you suggest a starting point for main rotor blades for a heavy gyro ?

    We met a gyru guy that has a big gyro. I think it was a Space something 18. Think his name was bell or ball. I plan on attending 1st Sunday at SPZ and want to ask him to be there. I have his card but am in Baja until 31 Jan and card is in USA.
    Could you email me his name and email?
    Russ Owens,
