    Hi Eric. I would really appreciate a copy of the Bensen Training Manual PDF. Mostly academic, as I'll soon be training in my own MTO Sport. But surely there must be something to learn from reading it. With the weather we have had this year, I have even considered building my Gyrobee as a glider...

    Funke ATR 500 Radio With Intercom - Make Me An Offer.

    A few days ago I finally got to check the radio, the Funke ATR 500. My wife inside the house with my Yaesu handheld and myself in the gyro on the ground in the back garden. Of course I used a frequency that should be ok for testing (122.500). My wife said, my mic volume was low, but I didn't...

    Gyroblade purchase

    When you write "Humlan" (Swedish for Bumble Bee), I think of the old Swedish-built single seater. And I know the swedes some years ago still kept a number of profiles and blades. So it must be those people you've found. I do hope the 6082 has been heat treated to at least T6.... Please take...

    Road Trip - A Kind of Flying Adventure - Look What Followed Me Home...

    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...

    My new MTO

    Hi Ben. I'll learn in my own used MTO Sport. Best of all worlds, I guess. I'll need no get-to-know flights when I get my license. Cheers Erik

    Good for you, Dave. But it was in response to the original poster...;) And he may be after something entirely different. Cheers Erik
