    Another option may be to either follow Dick DeGraw's lead and partially power the rotor, or use an over-run clutch on the prerotaror to ensure a minimum rotor speed - the idea being to keep the prerotator powered up in-flight.

    Hi. Interesting paper, thank you. The "wings" I propose on my gyro are very small, but learning from the paper, I need to think about the wing AoA. Perhaps the wings can be mounted on a round tube (rather than a rectangular tube, as originally envisaged), with an adjustment on the wing...

    My little design is obviously...

    Hi,
    I'm still busy building an AeroMax as well as a small aluminium fixed wing which I designed, so I'm in no hurry. But you know how it is - unless you do your planning well in advance, it inevitably comes back to bite you in the bum. As far as lessons are concerned, yes of course. It is illegal...

    Pitbull plans/drawings/owner's manual?

    Hi,
    In writing to this forum, I'm appealing to probably the most informed group of gyro enthusiasts in the world. Well, I hope so. Because I would like very much to build a clone of the Pitbull gyro. Actually, not so much a clone, as an evolution of the design, since approximating any design...
