  • Thanks Mac,
    That is a huge difference in load capacity.
    I bet the ones you pulled up would be more puncture resistant but also may not flex enough to provide adequate cushioning for a light gyro....

  • I was thinking these 26 Inch bushwheels because their cheaper and lighter. $995 each and 15.25lbs.

    However I don't know what the difference between the two are other than price and weight.

    One thing I worry about is lifting the mains more than the front wheel. That will cause...

  • Great advice. I have a request in now. I also asked for a quote on a Husky. I've heard tail wheel insurance can be pricey too....

  • Good morning Dave,

    The AG15 is basically the same as the Trendak Tercel or Celier Xenon but with the 915 engine. There are many of those models flying but I think there are only 3 flying delivered by Airgyro so far. I know one more will be delivered to a customer in Utah within the next...

  • Dave,
    Thanks again for all the great input. It's awesome you have off airport experience in both fixed wing and gyro's.
    I have about 1,700 hrs helicopter and only 125 airplane so I feel much more confident in rotorcraft than I do in fixed wing. I got my tail wheel endorsement about 8...

  • Hi Dave,
    Thanks for your input! I really want to make an educated decision and there just isn't a lot of info about off airport operations with gyro's.

    So if I pre-rotate the rotor up to 200 rpm or above would it prevent rotor flap even when hitting bumps?

    I have a...

  • This is an older thread but there isn't much info out there on gyro's set up for bush/off airport operations.
    There are a couple pics of an MTO and a Calidus with large wheels. Then there is Junglman's M16 that looks awesome and he has nothing but good to say about it (except for the expected...

    Can some sort of leading edge protective strip be applied or is it just not that big of a deal?

    When I was deployed to Iraq/Afghanistan we would spray paint the leading edges of the blades often to protect them from the dust. Probably not the prettiest thing but the BlackHawk wasn't meant...

    started a topic Composite Blades in Rain

    Composite Blades in Rain

    Hello,
    I recently spoke to someone selling AutoGyro's who is also a composites engineer and he stated that composite blades while superior to aluminum blades in many ways cannot be flown in the rain because they will deteriorate.
    Do those of you with composite blades never fly in rain?...

    Thanks Vance.

    First-- since you mention composite vs aluminum rotor blades it reminded me. I just got a demo ride in the Cavalon yesterday in Nephi Utah and the owner claims that composite rotor blades will deteriorate if flown in rain unless a special (nickle) leading edge is applied....

    OK, back to the OP's purpose of this thread.

    If I understand correctly, MBL produces ALL of the kits no matter what the name AG915, Tercell, Xenon etc...
    .
    AAT purchase their kits from MBL and gives them AAT names ie Tercell.
    R. Celier/Fly Argo purchase their kits from...

  • Looking for real world performance numbers of M24 and Cavalon with 915 is

    Hi folks,

    I'm planning to purchase a gyroplane this summer. I have my commercial rotorcraft and Airplane SEL so I just need to add on the Gyro category.

    I'm looking at 2 seat side x side enclosed models to keep my wife happy :) I also want the 915is to deal with the high...
