    You are rightly concerned about the insurance cost. Many fly without it. Its one thing to fly in open rural areas its entirely a different risk environment to fly over congested areas or heavily wooded mountainous areas. Mark actually was meeting today with one of only 3 brokers who write...

    Welcome to the forum. My name is Steve Greenwell. I would refer you to Mark Sprigg. He is a Magni dealer and trains out of Jack Edwards at Orange Beach. He is selling more gyros than any other dealer in the world I believe and is training 8 hrs a day lately. He actually needs another CFI...

    How to Make a Seat Tank

    Go here https://calumetmanufacturing.com/product/seat-tank/ If I needed a seat tank I would take rotomolded over anything I could make and be hours if not dollars ahead. At $225 for the seat I don't think it can be beat. You might want to sew up your own cover if you are just set on...

    Some Thoughts on the Rotary Wing Forum.

    A very powerful verse for those inclined to seek harmony, from Booker T Washingon, -- "I shall allow no man to belittle my soul by making me hate him." He's probably glad he passed before the invention of the autogiro

    New guy

    Coming from an RV it will be quite a different flying experience for certain, but to see the world from 500 ft will be worth it.

    MTO Sport 2017 stick and body shake; bad!

    No expert here, but for you to be hitting 380-400 Rrpm's when this occurs I'm guessing you are banking fairly hard as I wouldn't expect in normal straight and level flight your rrpm's to be that high even two up. Can you describe more of the conditions under which it happens?
