    Kolibri...A big reason your government has extra for social services is because your government doesn't have to supply the military needed to protect your fine people.

    Viral Aerosol Spread Simulation

    Vance...Good to hear you are doing well. I have strong opinions on this virus, but no need to anger people, as no amount of words will change their mind...doesn't matter which side of the debate you are on. If the virus magically disappeared tomorrow, in my opinion we will never get back to...

    World's First 160 HP Yamaha EXUP Aircraft Engine!

    Greg...I am just a surface dweller anymore, not complaining in the least though! But I must say I am very impressed with your Yamaha powerplant conversions. More than likely I would have bought an engine from you and built "something gyro" to put it in. I always loved milking performance...

    Jetlag03.... It's because of our country originating with our own weapons that you are not speaking German right now.

    I agree the gyroplane accident rate is too high;

    My sister used to be terrified of motorcycles and my flying. She just wasnt a risk taker. Finally I told her one day that she could go sit and hide in her closet , and death would still find her. That snapped something in her head and I soon had her going for rides in my SparrowHawk....and...

    Vance Triple Crown winner?

    Vance Triple Crown winner?

    Vance is hands down the most enthusiastic rotorcraft person on here. My passion for rotorcraft just moved on and is even stronger in other areas of my life. Sorry Vance that this post moves my total post count up one. I never was in this for numbers. When I went to a helicopter, I just felt...

    Kai....And I appreciated the votes! As a follow up...I did get to meet Matt Kenseth. My son and I ate with him. I told Matt he was going to win the Daytona 500. He thanked me kind of strangely and left. My son Jeff was kind of disgusted with me. He said.." You never tell those guys they are...

    Tandem double hang test

    The video of Gabors Behemoth being hang tested had a very convincing conclusion. First we secured a posterboard alongside the mast. Then we suspended the gyro from the teeter bolt with the rotor off..with Gabor sitting in the seat. A vertical laser line was I intersecting the teeter bolts...

    I still am busy creating stairways like this one I built for Bruce Artwick. Bruce wrote the Windows program most of the world uses, and he wrote the Flight Simulator program. He sold the Windows program to Bill Gates for 380 million dollars and built this 22,000 sq. foot home 18 miles from me.

    Tom....Great to hear from you also! You are my 1st initial contact I had with anyone else flying a Bensen gyrocopter. I was all alone on the farm, not knowing anything about one....as I followed Igors self training program successfully. You are an icon to me even though I never plan to fly...
