  • MTO helmets

    Just wondering if there are any other helmet options available in the US other than the standard Autogyro helmets for Mto Sports that are compatible with the standard Mto comms?

    Not in the US, but in the UK... But perhaps it helps...

      If your asking about US indigenous helmets that work with the MTO, I have not seen any. I ended up buying a Flycom from the UK. A little pricy but works well and quite comfortable. Just finished a 2 day 800 mile flight down the east coast to Florida and was surprised at how comfortable the helmet was for all those hours.

      Cheers

        Why can't you just use Comtronics, or other helmet? or even a good headset with the helmet that fits over? Many people here have modified motorcycle helmets to work with aviation with great results, and lots of $$$ left over in their pockets.

        What is so special about the MTO comm that you have to buy their helmets?

        I used my Fly Com noise canceling headset, with comtronics helmet in the Russian Tango 2 and it worked just fine.

          The radios on the MTO sport are very good radios. When I sold those gyros I bought the same radios in the USA because trying to get them worked on through Germany was a pain. I also ordered the wire harness with standard GA plugs. You can buy an adapter to change the connection to GA plugs and then use any headset you like.

            Flycom helmets will work with that radio though some settings have to be set right via Menu options.
            I sell Flycom helmets here but they are from the UK. They beat Comtronics for being quiet and legible. Comtronics may also work.
            You will need GA twin jacks to one quarter inch stereo jack adapter. Flycom makes that also.

              Is the Flycom quieter than the standard AutoGyro headset and does it allow standard glasses to be worn?

                Yes IMO. And yes you can wear glasses under it

                    My gyro has regular GA plugs so I use my old Air Force Gentex and it works fine.
