Default Another one

Well, here I go again.
I figured that if I took this here motor, them there tail and blades,that there rotor head and one of dem der props, I could build a gyro.
I guess I'll have to build a frame.
So now all I gotta do is figure out how to build one.

A six-pack, a bag of weed, and a drill motor is all you need.
Oh yeah, a junkyard. Gotta have a junkyard.

Or so I've heard...

Makes good sense. I'll try that!!

@ All In ,

Gives me something to do. Plus I enjoy building gyros almost as much as I like trying to make babies!!!

I guess I would have been a great Mormon gyro builder!!

Well, since 90% of all these parts have been accumulated over a period of time,I'm gonna call this thing The Accumulator. Rotor head and seat tank are Air Command. Stick is Brock. Rotor is Skywheels. Tail I got from Ernie last B-Days. 503 has a total rebuild, crank, pistons,rings and cylinders. I got that from Brook before the rebuild. Air shocks are from a Honda motorcycle. Here are some picks.

Great job Jake. I like the tall tail and the way you did the nose wheel, and the suspension is a great idea.
