    Gyrocopter accident Florida

    Update Update I visited with Danny in the hospital today....it's a clean room meaning must wear gown and gloves to visit. He related his agonizing ordeal getting pinned underneath, on fire, and finally literally breaking the seat belt to escape. The grass was dry and cut but between muffler...

    Gyrocopter accident Florida

    Danny's machine was a solid Jake Gyro with a Rotax 670 and a weed-eater 2 stroke for pre-rotator. The "expert pilot" with her head up her watusi was worse than the outcome of Danny's frame. Danny is a real sport, but what a horrible thing to happen.....THANK GOD HE IS ALIVE AND WILL RECOVER...

    Yamaha (Factory) FAZER Helicopter

    A new tool for bad A new tool for bad Funny how Yamaha doesn't want to know about our gyro application, though obviously their engine is approved for aircraft. The scary part is how the government looks at it from a military drone point of view. That chopper could easily be outfitted with...

    Hell's Belle 120 Yamaha

    I really like my frame, and the engine is top notch. Dave S. told me not to modify mine as it is already a perfect flyer. Best just to start all over lol.

    Gyroplane Lands on Capital Hill Lawn?

    Forget not the reason.... Forget not the reason.... I hope somebody buys it to pay for his legal fees. Doug is the modern day Joan of Arc brave enough to tell the world the King has his pants down. How different things are from 1928 when a Gyroplane was WELCOMED at Capital. Now we get...

    "As Wauchula Turns"

    This is all pretty petty to me. There are two sides to every story and it appears neither side has come clean with all the facts. Boycotting Bensen Days over this local matter is a WIN for the presumed advisory while hurting the Main Event so cherished. It's childish and foolish. The golden rule...

    "As Wauchula Turns"

    If only they (City of Wauchula) could be honest and straight forward. Oh what the public ears DON'T hear. I'm sure no discussion will be had on that missing $7.2M, and equally silent why Jim was really terminated when he was such an asset to the airport AND the city. It does appear Bensen Days...

    I thought Sunstate WAS the affordable care act......what a bunch of Morons. Like the Big M&M said, "I have no clue what you guys are talking about, BUT COUNT ME IN."

    New Year's Fly in

    Rated a Winner Rated a Winner I'm impressed with that camera.....a lot cheaper than a Go-Pro, plus very narrow so wind drag is minimal. I definitely feel the Go-Pro on my helmet, but not the Sony. Yes, the wide angle is a bit less.....140 compared to 180, but this ain't Hollywood LOL...
