    SportCopter build

    Here's a quick link to my time lapse shots of a sport copter lightning build. :whoo: All the sub-assemblies were completed prior to the final assembly (otherwise it would have been 5 hrs of me just standing in one spot... pretty boring :) The photos were taken in 5 minute increments... do the...

    Join Pra Or Not? Free Forum Or Not?

    I'm not going to comment on what the PRA does or does not do with the organization... there's 100 threads out there on this topic. Can it do more, yes; but at this stage in the game (and membership), it needs volunteers to accomplish these tasks - a lot of folks on this forum simply don't have...

    Rotary Engines

    Like Scott said, on a 2 place it'll work great. I'm in the middle of rebuilding a 13B for my twinstarr (for sale btw); but I don't know if I'll ever get it finished now since we just had a baby. I've read tons of articles and spoke with folks who have used rotary's on gyros. Your main issue is...

    Former/Current Military Gyro Guys? (and gals?)

    No prob Jazzen... we (booms and gunners) used to give each other hell 24/7. I've always viewed it a bit different; we're all there to do a job. If I had chosen to be a boomer instead, I'd more than likely be retired from the service right now... oh well. No harm, no foul; and no matter what...

    Former/Current Military Gyro Guys? (and gals?)

    Jazzen, I'm not going to bash you... not gonna lower myself. I sat many a week on alert with the boomers and several were my friends. My roommate was a boom operator as well; he died in a KC135 plane crash at Wurtsmith AFB (of which I pulled 4 people out, but he was already gone). So feel free...
