Hello drom south africa
I wander if i can be so bold to ask your opinion about a mast for a small light weight open single seater gyro
I have 6061t6 tubing from local microlight company
Its 2.5" round with 0.105" wall thickness
Can you help with suggestions if this will be sufficient or do i need to insert for instance nylon bushings with another smaller round tube inside? Won't this then be to stiff
I will be building a jt-5 type without fairings
I noticed that you mentioned in one of your posts how you built your own metal Bensen blades. I was looking around for information about how rotor blades are constructed, and I'm having a hard time finding anything. I'm very interested in how the blades are made.
How did you do it?
Any help or information you can give me I would greatly appreciate. I find that your posts are some of the best sources for helpful information about gyrocopters.
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
