I ended up buying an AeroProp. Great price - much cheaper than a new HTC or IVO.
The fuel system was not to my liking (false air), so I tried to change it, but the tank outlets
for the connector tube were too close to the filters - I tried a solution that didn't work.
And as soon as I have...

It looks like it's available in Denmark: https://www.aeropartner.dk/shop/the-gyrocopter-pilots-854p.html

I can help you buy the book here, if you'd like.
Or you can buy my book (hardly used yet)...
Here is the one we use in Denmark - there is even a newer edition than this:
I had a friend bend a 17 mm stainless tube for me and I'll weld some smaller tubing for the fuel filters onto it.
It could be 10 mm for fitting the hoses directly or threaded 12 mm tube for the plastic fittings - hmm.
Hi and thanks to both of you. You have given the best info.
I bought the ATR833s and the Flycom (GA mike and plugs).
Partly because it will be an easy switch with the 500->833 adapter. No fitting of new leads.
Also because all the compact radios in the lower price bracket seemed the same...
I have just paid (all or most of) a new Flycom helmet to use in my MTO Sport. That currently has a Filser/Funke ATR500 25 kHz transceiver.
But, since I want to fly through Sweden, I need to swap it for a 8.33 unit (anyone want to buy an ATR500?). I am about to choose a Funke 833S.
Well, this is certainly not common. Not a carpark but the waiting area where cars line up for the ferry. In Hirtshals (northern Jylland), I guess.
But well done! It does take some bravery to land in such a confined space, coming in just over the fence and between the lamp posts.
And it must've...
