  • True but IIRC the rigid drive on the AR-1 is able to accept a good amount of back-stick with the prerotator engaged. If I recall itís from a combination of a spline-type joint (or two) on the shaft(s) plus universal joint(s). I recall Abid saying thereís no problem keeping the stick back but it did...

  • Whether or not the pneumatic system contributed in this case, I must admit the brake and prerotator system design were significant factors in my decision to go with a Magni. The rotor brake is simple: off a Vespa scooter, I understand, with a cable activation, panel warning light, and connection to...

    For whatever reason it seems Kanardia has made it so you can only dim the Digi and some others by having the Alt on the CAN bus and using the adjustment knob on it.

    I have the Kanardia Combo as my ASI, which I like in overall concept but it has two flaws - one ďspecificĒ and one ďgeneralĒ. My specific unitís central LED screen is all white, so it needs to be replaced. Also, generally, because it also shows altitude and therefore has an adjustment knob, it canít...

    Dayton Dabbs with Lone Star Magni Gyro told me thatís exactly what it was. He said the UK built in some very conservative assumptions when certifying the gyro there and ended up at 100 mph. On the other hand, Dayton taught me the Vne was 115 and thatís what Iíve been using (though I seldom get much...

  • Hi Chris

    When you hear the Mayday (on LiveATC) it sure seems you can clearly hear the engine going at the first Mayday call, so Iím not sure this was strictly an engine-out situation at its start. Plus, with all the practice we do for engine out and Chrisí extensive experience teaching...

  • In all your extensive answers can you show me where you pointed out demonization, ignored facts, and embraced gossip? I didnít see any of those in this entire thread so would appreciate the clarification.

    Weíre all collectively trying to both deal with the loss of an excellent person/pilot//instructor...

  • To me, the ďpossible relevanceĒ is the apparent confusion over whether this was a damaged gyro that was rebuilt (and possibly incorrectly) or a new one with a possible design/manufacturing flaw. Seems very relevant.

    A catastrophic failure of a control cable would not likely have given...
