    replied to Flycom helmet issues.
    Its feedback from your radio's own microphone. When you buy a Flycom helmet, you should also buy a proper intercom and patch cord. That means either buy Flycom Back Box MK-II intercom or an intercom like MGL V6 radio's built-in intercom etc. that work with Flycom helmets. Icom A6 radio is mainly a...

    Hi Guys:
    The video is for your enjoyment and showcases AR-1 authority of rudder and rotor inertia and maneuvering. The point was not really to push the one wheel landing. The wind was mainly crosswind with slight quartering headwind factor. About 15 knots gusting to 20 knots, about 5 knots headwind...

    Hi:
    This is my biggest issue with the new forum right now and why I think it's difficult to participate meaningfully after the forum upgrade. May be its' a profile setting but I doubt that.

    replied to rotax 912 MTO Sport
    It is likely a guage or sensor or wiring issue because otherwise your engine would have already been toast. Rotax 91X series engine will stop running with no oil in less than 30 seconds.
