Good news from Russia. Completed all flight tests of mini-gyroplane "Machaon"! With the new engine Polini 250 - it's just a song. After long dovodok all good. Feedback from our fearless test pilot who flies on his wonderful MTO-Sport, mini gyro flying super maneuverability superior to MTO, but the velocity is inferior. Gyroplane easily withstand hard landings.
Dry weight remains the same - 87 kg.
Propeller thrust of 100 kg. Climb 4 - 7 m/s. The maximum speed of 105 km/h, can be more but not comfortable to fly. Cruiser 75 km/
Absolutely Excellent! With 36HP! What was Maximum takeoff weight (MTOW) for last (video) flight? What is reduction ratio? What kind of prerotator and what max. RRPM? What about a tail wheel? Looked like on a landing that spot was touched. Great , great effort!
Thank you. Georgi.
Congratulation. If you want to sell someone this gyro it would be strategic interessting to get the french ULM Certificate. With one EU Certificate, you can easily sell the Gyro, if it is under 120kg, in Germany. So the french certificate is easy to get and cheaper than the German Certificate.
