    My new not a gyro but just as fun flying video

    Looks like a good time Ron. I just sent the link to a flying buddy of mine. Did you sell your Challenger II? I ended up selling my gyro as I'm sure you have read. I did release some funds and bought a used Wildcat X and a used RZR 570 for the kids. They are both awesome machines. And of...

    New Butterfly Takes Flight Labor Day!

    I have a new owner for my gyro. I will direct him to this forum. Final payments have been made so I took her out of my hangar for the first time in 4 years. After fogging the engine twice a year, I figured she would be a bear to start with all that oil in the cylinders. A had replaced all...

    Monarch Buttery with G-Force For Sale

    Contract Pending. Might be finding a great new owner in California.... Then again, I dreamt last night I was keeping it and started getting instruction again :) I think I need to hop into my plane and buzz around a bit.

    New Butterfly Takes Flight Labor Day!

    I regret that I have crossed this road. As you all know, I have been wrestling with selling my beautiful gyro that I built from the ground up, very meticulously I must add, for the last 4+ years. I have been on the fence and may still be hanging on with one finger. I have posted her in the...

    New Butterfly Takes Flight Labor Day!

    Thanks for checking in guys :) I have done nothing (as usual) as it is the heat of the summer and I fix a/c units. Steve, last I knew, had gone to Texas as someone had wrote him a big fat check. He had many more customers that wrote checks to monopolize his time. Then I heard "Black" had an...

    New Butterfly Takes Flight Labor Day!

    After a pep talk from Jon C. I will hang in there until the fall. I still have my fly it or sell it intentions by the end of 2014. I have to draw a line or I'll blink my eye and it will have sat for a decade. It needs to fly whether I'm sitting in it or its new owner. Thanks for the support...

    New Butterfly Takes Flight Labor Day!

    Mark, Leigh, and Chris- I appreciate the time you took to reply to my frustrations. It has been almost 4 years since my Butterfly took flight. Where has the time gone? I would love to attend the fly in, but once again, my weekend is spoken for as my son has a Tae Kwon Do tournament. Don't...

    New Butterfly Takes Flight Labor Day!

    Well, it seems Mother Nature has had different plans for me the last two Fridays. I just can't seem to get to Macon for more training. This is really starting to play with my head and drive me nuts. I built, from my opinion, one of the safest and meticulous attention to detail gyroplanes and...

    New Butterfly Takes Flight Labor Day!

    I shot down on Saturday with my son to Polk County (4A4) to talk to Jon and pick his brain. I also looked at a few gyroplanes. I learned a lot. The weather turned iffy and I was temporarily grounded as a VFR pilot with an ever changing cloud base and visibility. I grabbed a quick window and...

    New Butterfly Takes Flight Labor Day!

    I thought I would chime in and refresh my postings here as it has been about a year. I made it through one of the roughest springs in the HVAC biz in 2013. It put two of my friends out of business that were at it longer than me. From May through December in 2013 I somehow performed a years...

    Well...my MTO Sport is ordered!

    "Anyway, I don't need to justify my decision to buy an MTO. I want it, I earned the money to pay for it, and I bought it. End of story." Well said John. Isn't that the American dream? If you work hard, and take the risks to become successful you should be able to enjoy the fruit of your...

    The largest stairway of my life

    Do you really need to justify FLYING to work? Remember the three types of lies: Lies, Damn lies, and Turbinator Math? :boink: Even if it costs twice as much....flying to your job = priceless. My $ 0.02 :) Bob

    What's the Use

    I listen Steve! I just ran out of money and got hit with a lot of bills. I have not given up though and still keep my gyro pickled and trickled in my hangar behind my plane. If things go as planned, I'll resume with you come fall or spring, but I have no set date as I only want to continue if...
