    replied to long slow process, the Autoflight 700
    Gave it another half an hour today. I like flying my Dominator. Perhaps time to build up my second engine, you know, just in case😆.

    the female cone is connected to the end of the balance shaft, spinning all the time. The male half is connected to the angle drive, angle drive is able to slide in and out via a lever and cable, operated by the pilot.
    Pilot uses a clutch handle ( like most gyros) to engage the cones. Some slippage...

    yes, a cone clutch, all built in as part of the engine.
    Internal reduction drive was designed to make the engine lighter and shorter, various ratios are available. Especially designed for autogyro use.
    New engine with TP injection is cleaner and more fuel efficient. TP injection is is simple,...

    long slow process, the Autoflight 700

    Test flying the Autoflight 700 twin,
    And it's me testing it. Runs smooth (internal balance shaft) and powerful (80HP) with the internal gear reduction proving robust so far. Still single ignition for the moment and runnimg carburetors. I've got a second engine here that will be set up with TPI...
