    A new take on ultra-light gyroplane

    Can you post a detailed drawing of the Rotor Head parts? I have high hopes I can produce it with a table saw and drill press

    A new take on ultra-light gyroplane

    JonSu Thanks for the update. I like the design. The Rotax 503 depicted in your design, can i assume the thrust line is parallel to the bottom of the fuselage? Is there an offset to counter the prop rotation? I don’t want to make a mistake on the mount. I am trying to build it just as you have...

    A new take on ultra-light gyroplane

    Some of the E drawings have a tape measure tool that does allow measuring. I have noticed that some of the drawings do not have tape measure.

    A new take on ultra-light gyroplane

    Would anyone happen to know where I can find for sale the push, pull cable JonSu has depicted? Would an aluminum tube bolted to an offset plate riveted to the steering wheel be a simpler option. I am not trying to redesign this control, just trying to get the job done. I am not an aircraft...

    A new take on ultra-light gyroplane

    JonSu Thank you for the very detailed information update on your design. If you have a dimensioned drawing for the tail wheel version it would be extremely helpful. I would like to apologize for this mis- direction of your thread, I am as much to blame as anyone. I think it is a great design...

    A new take on ultra-light gyroplane

    BarryK Could you give an example of the many before with my attitude? Were they all failures? How is flying a tractor gyro that hard. The master said in his manual that if you can ride a bicycle, you can fly a gyro. I think I will take his word over all that have added their grave cautions...

    Ultralight Gyroplane Limitations

    Thats what I'm talking about. Personal responsibility. I would like to get my hands on a copy of that Bensen manual. I don't know you Mr. Beaty, but I like your style. That is how I will learn to fly a gyro, If it is good enough for you, Mr. Beaty, then its good enough for me. CFI's are...
