          Hi JOY RIDE, good to see your thread here. (Do definitely check with Jim about posting any photos.)

          I'm also excited about the M2. The Aussies have been clamoring for it, and now it's being birthed.
          Am keen to have my own this year and fly with some Cub friends who get in/out of pastures.
          It may not have a sleek Eurotub's higher speed, but the M2's "offroad" capability is more appealing to me.
          (For sleek, there's the future SST.)

          Had not the SCII sidetracked Sport Copter, I think the M2 and SST would have taken the gyro world by storm.

          Regards, Kolibri

          Wasn't happy with my RAF's pitch instability, so I installed a Boyer H-Stab to my great satisfaction!

            It's a side-by-side, enclosed cabin, robust gyro with full suspension and castering NW.
            Rotax 915iS (or 914 or 912).
            Carbon prepreg body mounted on a beefy frame. Chrome-moly 4130 mast.
            Big 6.00x6 tires. Rough field capability.
            All new triple-rudder tail, with improved performance.
            Simple flat curve windscreen (cheaply replaceable from local sources).
            Designed for the Australian cattle ranchers, with their considerable input.

            I don't think any other 2-place gyro can beat it for quality, ruggedness, and utility.
            And I think it's less money than either a Cavalon or M24.
            Kits (with Rotax 912) start at $86,500.

            It's available very soon this year, and the prototype can be seen at 2018 Oshkosh AirVenture, and Mentone.
