    Hi Alex. I am looking for a new rotor for my older 914 MTO Sport with Type 1 head/tower. One of us have bought a Rotor-Tech rotor. And I am contemplating the Gyro-Tech. You wrote: "One more is Gyrotech/RotorTech companies (Poland) splitted recently." Do you have more info and history for a...

    Have gyro and PB-3. Need External Tachometer

    I decided to go with the money. Because I really lust after the Gyro-Tech rotor. And want to be friends with my instructor. I thought the insurance was getting off too easy, but the more I thought about it, the less I wanted another old Type 1 rotor. They are not that popular. My old rotor can...

    Have gyro and PB-3. Need External Tachometer

    He's really a nice guy. I just think he's acting stupidly ... There are some other instructors, but they have jobs and families - and there are other students also. I may have to bury my anger and be nice.... Cheers Erik

    Bendix for prerotator

    Hi. What Bendix did you get? I've been trying to find some of those used on mopeds (or small bikes). Also a ring gear, btw. I have a head without any prerotate option.

    Have gyro and PB-3. Need External Tachometer

    Hi Mike. Thank you for your interest. No, he doesn't know how to use it - yet! But I'm sure he'll learn quickly. Better take-off performance, better fuel economy and lower landing speed - if anything is different, so what? Unfortunately my instructor (who had damaged my rotor) destroyed any...

    Have gyro and PB-3. Need External Tachometer

    Hi Mike. Thank you for the offer - I'll certainly ask if in need. I had two reasons to be in a hurry: 1. Brexit will very soon make buying UK stuff more expensive and time consuming. 2. The one who will borrow my balancer can then teach me how to use it - smart, eh? He is trying out the...

    Have gyro and PB-3. Need External Tachometer

    Hi Mike - thank you for replying. Don't have pity on me...:) I bought it because the price felt right. And I wrote Mark Burton, who sold me a tacho sensor. It's on its way across the borders as I write this. So all is well.

    Have gyro and PB-3. Need External Tachometer

    I bought a Smartavionics PB-3 just to read in the manual I need an external tach sensor to balance my rotor. But there is no explanation as to what kind. What do I need? DIY or buy one? The Smartavionics shop has none. TIA. Cheers Erik

    MTO Blue-Green Metallic Paint

    A few days ago I received confirmation, that the company can supply the paint. Only problem is, it's classified as dangerous goods, so freight would be €100. It's nice to know they can and will deliver - now I just need to have someone pick it up. Thank you for all your help. Cheers Erik

    MTO Blue-Green Metallic Paint

    I just asked the former owner by SMS. He replied: It'´s Flipflop Blue. He bought it from Auto-Gyro. Okay, then I had better ask them... Regards, Erik

    MTO Blue-Green Metallic Paint

    Hi. Thank you for the answers, all three. Unfortunately the factory has been less than helpful on an earlier, very important occasion. I needed paperwork on a large modification made by Auto-Gyro people. And twice they even sent me an unuseable "crack detection kit" - with empty cans..... So I...

    MTO Blue-Green Metallic Paint

    Hi. Anyone who know about this paint from 2007? I just tried my local paint supplier - no luck. Someone out there must know something.... It's both blue and green metallic changing with the light. Regards, Erik
