    Gyro Warning System

    I discussed Jean Claude's posts with him and this is my understanding if what he's saying. What JC is addressing is the idea that if you are in a vertical descent and aggressively push the stick forwards there is a common misconception that this will generate low g and hence rapid (even...

    Abid Jean Claude has an annoying habit of being right, let's wait and see what his interpretation is. Mike G

    Jean Claude I'll send you the file, I'd like your interpretation. Mike

    Gyro Warning System

    The GWS considers two main Take Off (TO) flapping scenarios: Pre rotation below POH Rrpm, stick back TO. Correct pre rotation Rrpm but accelerating with the stick forwards. I treated both equally and this, sort of, assumed that flapping accidents during TO were equally distributed between the...

    I hadn't considered that your ELA was older than mine, so what you say makes sense. Mike G

    On my ELA 07 if I forget to switch from brake to flight and the stick isn't fully forwards the prerotator won't engage. There is a micro switch on the pneumatic trim/brake cylinder that registers that the piston isn't in brake position. Mike

    MTO classic vs magni 16 trainer. In your opinions what really are the differences?

    Tyger, I sometimes wonder how many have seen the parallel between my quest to overcome rotor vibration and Don Quixote's to overcome those windmills. The original link to Don Quixote was from my French RTB colleague Jérôme Prompsy who regularly calls me DonQ and himself Sancho so any praise for...

    Dave Because you said so, I took your post as humour and not personal or political, but even after quite a few cups of coffee I still don't understand it, perhaps because I still don't know what woke really means. I'd appreciate an explanation even if just to augment my sense of humour. Mike

    Personal Attacks.

    I have no problem with Vance or anybody being a moderator and welcome the effort to moderate some of the threads. I also understand those who fear some sort of censorship. To avoid the accusation that a moderator was being power crazy of biased would it be possible to have an icon that we could...

    Andino I don’t know why AG don’t use spherical bearings, but since I never proposed this solution to them there’s no reason to suppose they would. You must realise the problems facing any manufacturer when considering a design change once in production. Unlike a home builder who is only...

    Greg Not sure about being a powerhouse, more like in the land of the blind the one eyed man is king, (all though the king sometimes has no clothes and only the innocent and naive can see his nakedness) or perhaps the blind leading the blind. Regarding the chord and track adjustments for Magni...
