    Hey Chuck, have a question about 3 blade gyro

    I would throw into the discussion, that the 2/rev vibration only occurs in 2 blade rotors. 3-blades ones need to have lead lag joints, in order to cushion the changing drag per blade, while 2-blades ones do this with the entire mast. Kai.

    Gyro History

    But, as you get faster, don't the scales tip further towards the FW? There is a limit as to how fast you can fly in relation to your rotor blade tip and the faster you go, the more of your retreating blade is useless. Kai.

    Any Cavalon owners willing to share their experiences?

In France there was a shortage on condoms...

    First Stupid Question - 103 Weight

    I believe the issue is, that gyros generally need a bigger engine (more hp), which means, high motor weight, more stable motor mount etc.. This drawback needs to be caught up with even lighter construction around. Kai.
