    Fatal - AutoGyro MTOSport D-MTMZ, near Hildesheim airfield, Germany

    As a remote ie placed some way from the student, it does become important...as an unfortunate Instructor of mine found out when I had inadvertently left the mixture lever in the wrong position and he was in the back as the engine was sounding rather poorly right after TO. Luckily he is a calm...

    Differential Braking

    The Rosco has to be the leading single seat machine as far as rugged workhorses go. Would seriously doubt any other gyro type would have more. The only other working gyros with rough field conditions would be the South African Wagtail Trojans. https://wagtail.co.za and they I reckon would hold...

    Differential Braking

    Would imagine Denis would have a record of how he solved that.

    How on earth can you tell from that photo? Just one more reason I chose Warp Drive for my prop. They are seriously tough.

    Differential Braking

    Unfortunately lost in the mists of time Georgi. I tried to keep all our stuff together but in Stuart’s various moves it was all slowly shed away. Now that’s a serious testament to design success.(y)

    Differential Braking

    I’ll second that, they were great brakes and wheels on the Hornet. So good that they almost twisted off the strut attachment on the first taxi and brake test, luckily Denis had spotted the problem contacted us and came up with a fix for that as we were at about the same stage in our builds.

    Fatal - AutoGyro MTOSport D-MTMZ, near Hildesheim airfield, Germany

    Since there appears to be little damage to the tail, would go with Ron on a prop/engine departure/rotor damage causing this sad event.

    Niki Rotor Aviation Kallithea - a pilot's review

    To me the ability to recline...even a few degrees is important. Otherwise an impressive machine.

    Niki Rotor Aviation Kallithea - a pilot's review

    Pretty impressive. My pet hate...since you will be looking for possible negatives. No reclinable very upright seats. Hated that in the RAF 2000. Otherwise looking very good..

    Flying doesn't come easy!

    Vance you are a particularly sympathetic/empathetic human being. You have dealt with obstacles throughout life, as they come. You cope with, have coped with various setbacks, and just get on with doing what needs to be done. You see the positives, instead for searching for the negatives...

    Scary call

    It’s the other end I worry about. :-(

    Rotax announces the cease of 2 Stroke Rotax 582 UL production.

    I suspect two-stroke engines are leaving the market because they are facing steadily-tightening EPA standards for vehicle exhaust emissions.

    Always sad when we lose fellow aviators/gyronauts. Sincere condolences to families and friends.

    Returning from KTOA to KWHP after dark...

    Another very nice video Pete. Particularly liked the choice of music, it went extremely well with the spectacular city lights, and the lights of LA at night are amazing. There were shades of Blade Runner’s night sequences and Vangelis type ambient music. Always loved night flying, over built up...

    The building of a Kallithea – Part 1

    It is an exciting journey, and to fly a machine one has built particularly rewarding. That certainly looks a first class facility, good looking machine, and I wish you joy in your build.
