  • Helicycle wind noise

    First off seems this forum is kind of dead? Is this the best forum for the helicycle?

    I am planning on building a helicycle this winter and I am trying to read as much as I can. I have talked to a few builders/flyers and they say they don't like flying above 80mph because of the wind noise off the back of the cabin. Does anyone have a solution to this that you could post some pictures of? Is 80mph the speed you fly when you go cross country? Once I build mine I plan on flying it to southern Utah (200NM) away.

    Thanks for any info

    Yes, sadly this site has just become too difficult to navigate and keep up with, I've been trying to give it a chance but just don't stop in like I use to.
    As for the best place for Helicycle info, you can't beat the original Yahoo site. Most builders and flyers still receive all the posts and are generous in their advice and counsel... That's especially true after you purchase your kit and get access to the builders section. A very supportive bunch of guys...
    If you're serious about building or flying, get your butt out to Homers Fly-in:
    After a 'pause' of 5 years, he's having one last(?) meet and there are going to be _lots_ of receive and Rotorways (as well as an interesting smattering of all other types) there. Absolutely the best place to see, touch and get your questions answered.
