    JT-5B Autogyro

    Hi, Mark! I am concerned that I didn't point out that there are great differences between the original JT-5 from Jukka Tervamaki built in 1973 ( http://www.icon.fi/~jtki/jt5gyroplan.html ) and the 2009 GyroTec DF02. The JT-5 was equipped with "... a Limbach Motorenbau converted 1 700cc VW...

    EUROPE – Xavier Averso (France) “Stella” Aluminium Extruded Blades - questions

    Hi, TNVD! I have Averso Stella blades on my DF02 from GyroTec ( www.GyroTec.de ). I am very glad with my pair of those: relatively high inertia, low vibrations. They are fulfilling my expectations - what more can I say? I only can compare them with two 2005 Sportcopter blades that had been...

    Boston to San Diego in a gyro.

    Hi, Chris and Robert! Great to read how your dreams (better: plans) are coming true. Reading your daily postings keeps me with you on this tour and I really hope that I will be able to do a similar "adventure" in one of the next years. (I only have to find some friends who can carry a part of...

    My Aero trade fair report

    @ Walter! So sorry that we didn't meet this time - but nevertheless there was quite a lot of German Gyro Forum members who met regularily in these 4 days. I talked with about 25 gyro pilots, some of them I had met several times before at "Tannkosh", Gelnhausen, Fertöszentmiklos (Hungary), and...

    First little independent Gyro Fly-in in Germany

    Hi! I'm also very enthusiastic about the DF02 from GyroTec - so enthusiastic that I already ordered one of the first serial machines several months ago. I also flew with this machine last year in France and you can find my report under this thread...

    To the sun and back (story without photos)

    Thanks for your report! Thanks for your report! Hi, Chris! You already told me about your trip so I looked for the report of your trip and after reading it right now: I like it! I had been living in Graz (in Styria/Austria, only 30 min north of Maribor) from 1976 until 1999 and the Slovenian...

    MTOsport vs. MT-03

    Hi, Kai! Thanks for your report! It sounds very reasonable. I'm also looking forward for the opportunity to experience the MT-Osport. The only thing I do not understand is: why was the mast tilted less in the regular MT-03? What was the reason that it was not optimized in this way from the...

    AERO Friedrichshafen 2007

    Hi, Willem! I was the 109 kg DF02 test pilot and I must admit that i.m.h.o. the CG will not be the problem (I was at the hangar in St. Ciers during Michael determination of the CG within a wide area of loads: empty up to 109 kg = me). And perhaps also your abdominal girth will not be the main...
