  • Hi Charlie - sorry about what happened to you and your gyro.
    I would like to buy your Wunderlich prerotator including the ringgear and the driver on the gearbox.
    As a unit to bolt directly on my 'bee. I have an old 503 (never run, with 2.58 gearing), and I'm starting building a Gyrobee....

    So the reason behind choosing it over other materials could be, that when overloaded it deforms - but doesn't break?
    And an open frame gyro is inspected regularly.

    Cheers

    Hello Sir. You must be Ralph Taggart?
    If you aren't sick of being asked about your Gyrobee,
    I do have a few questions....

    Cheers

    Yes, I am very tempted to trust the very knowledgeable and experienced people here.
    But I reckon the shock plate has to be stainless for purposes of wear?
    I suppose Taggart is still alive, so I could ask him why.

    Cheers

    Hi Chuck.
    The plans do indeed call for 1/8" stainless.
    And since there is a cluster plate on both sides, it's .35 mm total.
    I wonder if that'll make the nuts bottom out the threads...?
    Anyway, I think I may be able to buy some 1/8 in the UK.

    Cheers
    Er...

    Hi Chuck - thanks for chiming in.

    My problem is, (unspecified) SS is what the drawing calls for. So unless I have a very good reason, that's what I have to use (304 or old name 18/8).
    But 1/8" is hard to get in Europe - and maybe the nut on the AN cluster plate bolt thread bottoms...

    Thank you for answering. Upon final assemby the aluminum would be coated with paint or something else.
    But it's now possible to buy grade 5 Titanium - wouldn't that be best?

    Cheers

    Hi Doug et al.

    Denmark (all of Continental Europe, even) is metric.
    So the 1/8" stainless plates - can they be 3 mm instead?

    Cheers
