Chuck, I'm going to investigate, as best I can, the crash in Michigan. We worked together on a previous crash, also in Michigan some years ago. If you'd like to help, could you private message or email me your phone number and email address so I can talk directly with you, send pictures of whatever you or I think is relevant. etc. Thanks, John Anderson
I have a bearing that I got from Robert Reece's estate, the Rotor Dyne originator.
It's a 5506 and the new number is 5206,,,,I understand that this old New Departure is now replaced with the 5206.......What's your thoughts on me using this 5506 for my rotor head brg? Ron Iaconis
Haven't seen you in a few years. I hope I see you at Wauchula this week end. I have been to several of the Bensen Days Fly-ins, but I always seem to miss you. I don't know if Ernie has told you, I am building a Dominator. Just starting. I don't expect to build this one in a hurry as I still have my Cessna and I fly regularly so there is no hurry to get the Dominator flying. I just want something to keep me busy and away from the computer. I now have access to CAD and technology that I did not have when I was a kid in the 70's. I expect that my Dominator will really put my old VW powered Bensen to shame. I want to thank you for all the help you proivded me with in the 70's. I would never have had a gyrocopter if not for you.
Hello mr. Beaty,
i have a question about building a KB3 from stainless steel tubes like the chassis from the european MT03 from Auto-Gyro.com.
Do you think, using same diameter of tubes is it strong enough? The prob in europe is to find 6061 T6 aluminum or similar and if you find, its very expansive.

Note that I have also added links to the two Russian books which were translated in the "Technical Papers, Books, and Publications" section, so that anyone can have a look for himself. http://www.rotaryforum.com/forum/showthread.php?t=32452
The Russian books are in DJVU format but WinDJVU is a freeware viewer which is available on the web.
