    One of the biggest problems is cooling,and cost being the other.Years ago the cooling on aircraft was hard to get right

    there is a lot of air moving through the radiator on an aircraft, the amount of air moving with a gyro is very small by comparsion.

    and then there is the...

  • Your right Vance a student can get in trouble in a steep uncoordinated turn real fast,

    especially if the turn is started down low,I have experienced that and fortunately I had

    a large amount of power available to keep me out of trouble.

  • I don't wait for the turn to become uncoordinated even though it sounds like it vance,I start with the cyclic then in an instant as the turn starts I start feeding in rudder to keep the string centered,

    keeping the string centered depends upon the variables of the turn itself.

  • Vance I have gave this some thought and I realize that I also start my normal coordinated turns with the cyclic first and then feed in rudder to center

    the string/ball. The reason is that the cyclic has a little lag time built into before the turn starts and I wait for the turn before...

    replied to Aviomania - Viking First Impressions
    the gear box problem is typical eggenfellner crap, his gear boxes never held up on the Subaru conversions and the pilots were the

    test pilots for the new improved versions which always failed,

    He destroyed the reliability trust of the Subaru now it looks like he is doing the...

    Brian I tried to install the belite gauges,both types with the pressure sensor,I finally tried filling a 5 gallon bucket with the probe installed at the bottom and

    it appeared to be just fine until I started removing fuel to check for accuracy,the guage after removng 10 % of the fuel showed...

    The latter generation of RAF rotor blades is just fine,there has never been to my knowledge a blade failure,there have been some hub bar

    problems but they appear to have been involved is prior accidents. I have a set of later generation blades and the early styled bar and would fly

    replied to 912 914 Rotax Mitsubishi Turbo
    Fare I said I would never try to turbocharge a carbed engine,I will leave that to the factorys, its just that its safer and easier

    for the average shade tree mechanic like me to use injection as the fuel delivery system.

    I suspect that rotax has equipment,time and money that...

    I would never try to turbocharge a carbed engine,way to many problems.fuel injection is the only way to go for any turbo engine.

    You can get away from the intercooler if you keep your boost below 7 lbs,

    replied to Viking/Aviomania
    Fara as you know even aircraft engines can fail,I believe its the installation itself that is probably failing,except for the gear reduction unit that's unacceptable,there are several

    reduction units that are proven that could have been used. My stock RAF belt reduction for example has...

    I have sportcoptor blades,have never been able to get them as smooth as my RAF blades,however I

    like the sportcoptor blades performance over the RAF ones.

    Mike On page 2. of the posts I have pictures of my motorcycle shimmy dampers mounted on my RAF,they work very well in reducing stick shake.

    The amount of resistance is controlled by adjusters on the dampers,

    You might want to just try the radio with the antenna on it,I have a friend who flys with just the normal antenna on his A6 and he has good reception.

    rasool,what vance just said is pretty much Standard Operational Procedure for handling rotors on the ground by all of us.

    Just pay attention to gary and I guarantee that you will never have any rotor issues,ever. I have never flapped a blade yet

    but of course there is that...

    replied to Bad Elf gps
    I believe a compass is a required instrument to have,go to( nushield.com) they sell glare shields for all devices and they really work,I have one on

    my garmin gps and it really helps a lot,even in direct bright sunlight.
