    Swedish yoke

    Thanks Kolibri, I have decided to remove all my doubt and tilt the mast back at 7 degrees anyway. The job is half done already but I should have just done it to start with, My whole reason for going to a limber mast was to reduce the two per rev so no point contradicting the issue with a...

    Swedish yoke

    Thanks Kolibri, you are absolutely correct. I am thinking of changing my mast to what is should be and tilt it rearward. Having a limber mast and then mount it vertical is less than ideal on a few levels, but before I go changing things I would like to know weather it is actually unsafe or just...

    Limber Mast Question

    Going on the small amount that I have learnt from Chuck, The 4130 would be good but any of those aluminium should be more like 0.120 wall. Hopefully others will confirm. wolfy

    Swedish yoke

    Going on the formula you posted already I would be looking at a bending load of about 735 foot pounds, (calculating with the mast length being from the teeter bolt to top engine mount of about 60") As you said there is no doubt the mast will be bending under normal flight loads, but how much is...

    Swedish yoke

    Hi again Chuck, I am have some concerns with my decision to stay with a vertical mast (as it was before converting to round tube). Do you think my concerns are valid? My mast is 2" x 0.065" and about 50" from the top engine support to the bottom of the cheek plates. I estimate my AUW at about...

    A new take on ultra-light gyroplane

    I have not flown a tractor but talking to someone who has, he said in the air they are much the same as a pusher. The take off technique is slightly different, but he said the biggest thing to get used to is while in the take off run once the rotors get some speed and start making lift and drag...

    World's First 160 HP Yamaha EXUP Aircraft Engine!

    Yes the trick is to use standard rotax pistons ie uls pistons with reduced compression, engines that have used after market pistons have had there problems no doubt. I wouldn't push them to 160hp either. wolfy
