    Maybe so, but nearly all of the gyro is out of your line of sight while flying, and FLYING is why we have them.

    In other words, looks only count when you're on the ground.

      Mine has been a hanger Queen last 5 to 6 years. But I'm going to change that.

              Hi Frank's. Here's a photo of my Bensen. Started flying as a glider on 1967.10.14, powered up with the 72 Mac in 1970. Solo permit in '73, PPL in '75. Photo taken in 1991.

              Gilbert, in your photo, is the prop on the right way? On zooming in, It almost looks like the curved side of the blade is on the stern side.

                          A Mac is a temperamental engine, I don't trust it all the time, but with good maintenance it runs, I like it because it's light and powerful,
                          Your continental engine is a great engine and very dependable but it is a little heavy, but if you have the right set of blades it will fly
                          you well.

                            I just listed it in the for sale section.
                            After getting my medical from Transport Canada they took it away a few weeks after telling me after talking with there co-workers that taking away my Medical was the right thing to do.
                            and I pass every test they ask and even more then usual, They told me I could contest it but I don't think I will. I'm giving up.
