    replied to PB-3 ballancer for sale as new
    This will be a very good deal for any buyer if its sold at the right price.
    We will be having a training class for PB-4 balancer just before or after Sebring Expo and the buyer could possibly attend that class. I am sure Mike G can spend after hours to work with them on showing them PB-3 screens....

    replied to Buying a gyro is not that easy
    Thanks for the kind words.
    We do try our best to respond within 24 hours or usually less. Sometimes the specific answer is not available right away but we try to let people know that as well and tell them the answer will be available at what day and time....

    I hope Kolibri can take a joke. I just thought it was funny.

    I don't want to get involved in the RAF or Dofin Fritts and the rod end accident debate. I have not followed it and I don't know enough about RAF construction to be qualified to comment on detailed specifics. All I do know that...

    The most traditional materials and the seat that allows you to do the most traditional job. Someone posted it on FB and I thought of Kolibri's posts on materials. Very safe.
    Couldn't resist :)...

  • Ha.You have a thing for coming up with unsubstantiated claims out of the blue on things you are completely ignorant about. You generalize things way out of bounds.

    To educate you here is a comparison of 2017-T4 versus 6061-T6 mechanical properties. On every aspect 2017-T4 comes out ahead...

  • I have a Magni blade from a crash that I cut up in multiple pieces.
    So Kolibri the engineer, what's your concern about the hub bar of GyroTech rotors. They basically copied the hub bar of Averso Stella and that's the rotor we use. Would love to hear your analysis of what's wrong with it and yes...

    Making a weld look pretty (which I admire btw myself) and having a weld done to spec are two very different things Kolibri. Of course its best if both aesthetics and spec are both high end but one should never be mixed with the other. Of course I brought the fabrication and welding in-house to bring...

    Hi Kolibri:

    I went back and saw your post with the picture that you talk about. Besides RAF, the others clearly started by saying we are not yet sure of the cause and it could be because of X Y Z. Companies want to release a SD as soon as they can to advise customers of problems. It is...

    Probably none. But how many ADs and SBs from us, AutoGyro or ELA have you seen that blame the pilots in the documents?
    I honestly haven't seen all the ones from AutoGyro or ELA etc. but I know we have not blamed any pilot for the couple of mandatory ADs we have released and the ones I have seen...

    Kolibri:
    So you came to gyroplanes from Certified Fixed Wings.
    Great. Let me ask you about the AD's so many of them get on wing spars, engines, leaky fuel tanks, landing gears, tail sections. There are volumes of them. They are released to prevent accidents. If wing spars, leaking wing fuel...

    LOL. Whatever you say.
    Looks to me like Greg is not so unsung if you who have never even met him or even talked to him on the phone (right) but have somehow heard about his engineering design abilities. He is famous :).
    BTW, did you look at the engineer's LinkedIn profile I put earlier who...

    Ha. Kolibiri.
    I was not the one who started questioning "my" qualifications. In years of being on many forums including this one, have you seen me keep claiming my degrees as proof of something or did you even know what degrees I had? The answer is no. One time that I have done that...

    What the heck is "contracts for engineering design opinion"? Is that code for no its really not designed by an engineer but sometimes when we are stuck we ask an engineer to get us out of a bind?

    Either the design is done by engineers or its not. Its simple. Having an idea of...

    Amazing how Kolibri simply will not answer questions I ask. Is SC gyroplane designed with involvement of any engineers? You ordered one right. Did you ask all these questions about their degrees from them?

    Oh and to give Kolibri even more detail since he is really curious and wants to know who worked on AR-1 design for some weird reason ... the mast assembly for AR-1 was specifically assigned and worked on for analysis by a young engineer named Bryan Bean from USF Mechanical Engineering department under...

    I have Mechanical, Micro-electronics and Computer Science and engineering degrees. This has been written on this forum before. Why do I have to repeat that for you. Is your SC you have "ordered" designed by a ME or aero engineer? And again to c;early answer you since you can't understand my...

    I am just shaking my head and laughing. No wonder you have done cross examination in your day. Explains a lot. I gave you only a partial "history of watchmaking" because there are many watches (including 3 trikes) I have made that I did not even touch on. It was to blow your...

    Kolibiri:
    AR-1 is certainly based from an AG-1. No doubt abut it and I have never hidden that fact but its not a faithful copy. Very sorry to disappoint you. You have never seen the two side by side and carefully examined them. There are tons of differences including dimensions of the frame and...

  • Thank you sirs. Russell and Hill Country Gyros did a very good job. I am not one to trust aircraft assembly to end users easily without supervision and I was very reluctant to let that be done outside our shop but Hill Country Gyros had come here and assembled their machine, took training and showed...
