    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.

    Why does it roll to the left?

    Some people don't understand the implications of falling behind the power curve. Suddenly you need more power to keep level or even climb, than you needed to take off. If you were already on full throttle, that's it. another example without so much roll here...

    Why does it roll to the left?

    Hello Chuck, good to hear from you again.Lets see if I havet fully understood. The rotor is below the required RPMs, and therefore, the rotor plane axis would be tilted too much backwards against the rotor bearing axis. This is due to the asymmetric lift, between advancing and retreating...

    Hello, This is definitely an existing aircraft and has passed the German approval process. The cabin is indeed very similar to the Xenon/Tercel. You have different motor choices, a Rotax 912 120 hp turbocharged version as well as an aircooled UL-Power if I'm not mistaken. The rotor head is...
