  • Tangogyro

    I just purchased and completed the build on a new Tangogyro from tangogyro.com. Can the Admin on the forum add this company to the list of Gyroplanes?

    Here is a link to my build photos.

    The airworthiness certificate was issued yesterday and for its first flight with Jon Carleton as the test pilot, he pre rotated the machine to only 170 rpm (it has the ability to get up to 220 rpm), the nose came up within 200 feet and it was in the air at 3/4 throttle by the 400 ft mark with less than a 5 mph head wind. The 8.5 chord on the 28 foot extruded aluminum blades combined with the 135 hp fuel injected Yamaha Snowmobile engine make this phenomenal performing gyroplane! In fact, it is reported that Ron Menzie has been training a student in his Tangogyro in the 97 degree heat in Searcy, AR recently with a density altitude of over 4000 feet with no problems!!!! The performance of these machines can not be matched with other rotor blades or engine combinations!

      Yes, it is an amateur built machine. Check out the website. And there is a build assist program in Roswell, Georgia. Please give me a call at 972-825-7928 for additional details. Alex just sold six machines from the February shipment and is heading to Russia to prepare the next shipment in a couple of weeks. If you want one, get your deposit in ASAP and you can request a specific color, engine, extended frame for tall pilots, instructor package, plus other options.
         We are proud to introduce the all new Tango Gyros. These machines are fast, fun and nimble and are a great starting point on the road to flight. They’re light weight and responsive to control...

          You notice on the website, they do not list there gyro's as component parts in the parts area, their not going to want to deal with a home builder and all the hassles, that entails. Just my opinion.
