    Not often you can make like a gyro in 727.

    I would have sworn that was Ron Awad @ the controls there, except the go-round was too long, & not @ a steep enough of an angle!

    N47EB RAF 2000 - Millard airport, Nebraska 7th-Dec-19

    Appalling that one rotorblade is missing from the hub bar. It appears from the large photo the firefighter took of the machine that even the blade strap is also gone. Highly unlikely any of the first responders removed those two items from the immediate scene b/4 any investigation had even begun...

    Tandem carbon fiber fuselage gyroplane project FOR SALE! $5,995

    I haven't weighed it. But, being carbon fiber, weighs less than a fiberglassed one. The builder said all the parts are virtually ready for paint. He said he sanded & sanded & sanded to get it ready, but then didn't finish the gyroplane for health reasons. The hangar is 45 minutes away on a...

    Fusioncopter JK-2 Nano

    1. Worldwide, gyro pilots haven't been able to fly on only 35 hp. Actually, Pollini's stats come to 36.5 hp). Once up in the air, yeah, & even a bit less that that in level flight, but not enough horses for taking off & climbing out w/ rotorblade drag. Ralph Taggert & his flying partner, Don...

    Rotor blades - Airworthiness Directive - Celier - Trendak - Argo

    Sounds like a magic mast bushing is what RAF-Canada used for that very reason. Maybe RAF-South Africa still does...

    Fusioncopter JK-2 Nano

    Possibly the european ultralight (don't they call them microlights?) rules. I seriously doubt they meet the FAA's 103 regs weight restrictions, w/ the canopy/fairing.

    Fusioncopter JK-2 Nano

    Dave: Go to their youtube page. They have 3-4 other shorter videos of it. One does show an approach (rather steep) & landing. Although, the camera switches to another view point on the landing itself, & it, along w/ the strong beat of the music @ that exact point, makes me believe they are two...

    It is a nice one (having been a guest there), but Yuma is much hotter than where we bought land in north Central Az. @ 4,500' ASL.

    Modified ROTAX 670 snowmobile engines by "Rotax Rick" being used for aviation. In an effort to help other rotorcraft guys & not see them experience the frustration & lack of flying time due to engine problems & catastrophic failures, think twice about using the Rotax 670 engine that is modified...
