    What actual rotor rpm would you say constitutes "up"?

    Dave, I think you secretly want to own a gyroplane again :)

    Hmm. I understand why an airplane might choose the beginning of the runway "in most cases", but I'm afraid don't understand why a gyroplane ought to.

    Mounting a Trig ADS-B Out Package in Sport Copter Pod

    Radio antenna or GPS antenna? Two very different animals

    It seems to me that if you always pick the beginning of the runway as your touchdown spot, then if you end up a little low/slow and cannot add power (engine out), you risk landing short of the runway. Whereas if you can pick a spot partway down the runway, you have more "leeway", both long and...

    Mounting a Trig ADS-B Out Package in Sport Copter Pod

    Won't part of the mast also be above it? If you place the antenna hard against the mast, the mast itself can block signal from satellites in a fairly wide arc

    Mounting a Trig ADS-B Out Package in Sport Copter Pod

    Bear in mind that the transponder (in this case TT22), is only used for ADS-B Out*. What you use to control your transponder should not affect this, as long as the TT22 is supplied with the position data it needs from a permanently-mounted source, it will broadcast "Out" data when set to...

    Not to mention a rotorcraft...

    Mounting a Trig ADS-B Out Package in Sport Copter Pod

    I edited my original post on "cross talk" to differentiate between the position-source-only box and the GDL 82. I'm not clear on exactly which devices Trig includes with its "package", but I'm guessing that their "out box" is merely a position source, because that is all their TT22 requires for...

    Mounting a Trig ADS-B Out Package in Sport Copter Pod

    If worried about "scrutiny", one always has the option of turning the transponder off when it's not required... The weather and traffic features of ADS-B In are quite nice, though, and one can only be assured of receiving "in" when transmitting "out".

    Mounting a Trig ADS-B Out Package in Sport Copter Pod

    The Trig TT22 transponder only needs a GPS/WAAS position source. That device usually just gathers the position information and supplies it, by wire, to the transponder, which then uses its "extended squit" capability to transmit the data "out". I don't think there is any serious problem with...

    Mounting a Trig ADS-B Out Package in Sport Copter Pod

    I understand your issue... in general, higher and more level will be better, even a bit higher up on the pod. The antenna wants to "see" as much of the sky as possible. But until you are able to test it, it's pointless now to change it. Where did you put your transponder antenna?

    Mounting a Trig ADS-B Out Package in Sport Copter Pod

    Looks nice. Do we get a view of the face of the pod too? I might be a little worried about the angle on your GPS antenna...

    Winter Flight Suits?

    Just wear long johns under your normal winter attire. I presume you are already wearing a helmet and eye protection.
