...seen on a Trixy Aviation gyroplane:
The gyro is equipped with an Averso rotor. The center adjustment of the rotor hub can be simply done by turning a screw.
Pure Carbon is used in modern helicopters but not for gyro blades. So the question is whether classical composite designs like the one used in Magni blades are resistant for "explosions" caused by an external hit.
There are several arguments pro and contra composite blades, for example used in a Magni. But what's going on in the case of a rotor hit from a bird. The popular aluminium rotor blades will accept it without a crucial damage. And the composite blades ? Will they crack or burst ? There is a...
I'm faced with the problem to decide between a 8.4 m (27,56 feet ) or a 8.0 m (26,25 feet) rotor. At present I'm flying a doubled-seated MT-03 equipped with the 8.4 m rotor. The reason for a change to a 8 m rotor lies in the wish for a better attitude during thermal conditions...
my first impressions from the European AERO fair ( Friedrichshafen / Germany ):
pictures are in following order:
DF-02 by gyrotec
rotortec 2-seater / 3-blades
Phenix ( the yellow Non-Pusher )
Calidus by auto-gyro
MT-03 sport also by auto-gyro with floats
