    What's even crazier, in the new interpretation a flight instructor is being "compensated" even if he does it for free! The IRS would love that one – they could tax a boy scout on the value of helping granny across the street.

    Can someone explain why folks keep saying gyros are "top heavy"? I don't feel that mine is, really, especially not with full fuel.

    I think the above is what is known as "tongue in cheek"? (I hope)

    And they even use Ernie's name on their website: Dragon Wings were developed by Ernie Boyette a well known and respected member of the gyrocopter community. Ernie Boyette personally tested every rotor set manufactured for the past 30 years before passing on the torch to Luminati Aerospace...
