I am training a man in a side x side AC with a Soob. He weighs about 210 pounds. What was your ballast and weights you put on your gyro to fly it solo? What positions did you put the ballast? Thanks Greg Bradley
Greg Bradley here in Missouri. I am working with a student, Tim Sinclair just outside of St. Paul, MN. He has a Soob 2.2 powered side by side AC. I am getting close to soloing him. Due to the two seats, he has to sit on the left side for solo. With your set up, with his weight around 190, how much ballast should I add and where to put it. I will of course fly it myself before letting him solo. FYI, I owned a AC 532 side by side years ago and used to fly it without ballast so I know the difference.
looking forward to comming up on Saturday if that is good for you. If you have any projects you need help with then all the better. Nothing better than working on and talking about gyros. Its like man heaven
Hey Chris are you going to the chile fly in on the 9th this week end. I f not I will come there if so I will meet you at the fly in. What do you want to do. I can bring your parts there and pick up the engine there or your place and work on gyro either is great for me.
I live near West Chester/Chadds Ford. Any chance I could get a short ride with you once you finish your SxS upgrade? There was a fellow near me with a magni that flies out of new garden, named Lee Blazejewski. I misplaced his number quite a while back though.
