    Need Rotax Gearbox ...

    I ran a 68" IVO three blade on a 532 with a 2.62 gear ratio.

    Electric Pre-Rotator

    I'd have to agree with Wolfy, looks to be less than 100 rpm. You might want to verify the settings on the rotor tach. If you get creative, you can take the video and do some math with the frame rate.

    Weber carbys

    Although I don't know what jets you should be running, I do know that they should be larger than stock (automobile) jets. When flying, you are running the engine at high RPM and with a large load on the engine. It needs extra fuel to keep up with the load. Does your exhaust blow black smoke when...

    The catch 22 of autorotation on gyroplanes

    Somewhere I heard Sir Wallis used very short rotors maybe 16'? I can't seem to find where I read/heard it though so maybe it's not true.

    question about prerotation

    Here's a video of how I pre-rotate at our non towered airport. I stop at the Hold Short line and pre-rotate to around 150rpm, then stick back and taxi onto the runway while lining up on center and go. Very minimal time on the runway. I do take my time as my rotors gain rpm though. No pre-rotate...

    Flying off to the right.

    I have found on some gyros, mine included if you center the stick, the head will be tilted about 3 degrees to the right if standing behind the gyro. From the picture, it looks as if your's is aligned this way. Try aligning the stick and the rotor straight and level. While flying, if you let go...

    Hand held radios

    I have a Yaesu (350?). I used to use it until I bought and old Becker in dash transceiver. I had no issues.

    Rotor Strap Bolts

    Are you planning on taking the rotor blades off and on the hub bar? If not, the nylock nuts should be fine. pretty much all of the newer two place machines I see use nylock nuts. If you are going to disassemble the rotor offen, I would use a castle nut with pins, or keep a stash of new nylock...

    Social Media?

    None of us have much time to post anything anywhere. We spend most of our time building and flying. If you have questions or comments, people will make the time to respond. Chapter 62's monthly meeting is this Saturday at 11am at the hangars in Anahuac. You should swing by and meet everyone. If...

    President trump

    If the rules of the game were different, i.e. no electoral college, I'm sure the way the nominees campaign would also change.

    President trump

    So that's it? Have you ever exaggerated a comment while trying to get a point across? How many people did he shoot? Remember you said you did not like his "Actions". Talk is just talk.

    President trump

    His "actions" or policies? I have no problem with most of his policies. You are correct, his actions are not as fit and finished as a career politician, but that's not what we elected him to be. We elected him because he was NOT a career politician. As far as dishonest and immoral, what example...
