    Deland, FL Airshow

    Did ANYONE in here go to the Deland Airshow? If so, any comments about it? I noticed Silverlight was an exhibitor, maybe Greg of Abid can chime in and give us their thoughts and take-aways. I only just heard about it today - weeks after the fact - in an email offering MAC an exhibitor's list.

    Another good man has gone!

    I met Alex at Bensen Days 2015, after seeking out the father-son team of dealers of the then-premiered Tango Gyro, at the lunch trailer, to tell them that there were three things about the Tango Gyro that I would change. Two of these things got changed on later models, Tango Russia persevered...

    Tango 2 - N875FV - Georgia

    Indications at this early time are that the error in initial pilot reported is due to someone jumping the gun and connecting the N numbers to the owner, then stating that he was the pilot before knowing all the facts. It is my understanding that the "first 40" were being flown off by Alex for...

    Electric Pre-Rotator

    Hmm. I had an Odyssey fail after only a year, big waste of my $$$. On the other hand, I have had half a dozen Yamaha batteries that weigh about the same as the Odyssey did, about same size, like motorcycle battery style, and these batteries all sat around for the better part of the year in...

    Tango 2 - N875FV - Georgia

    My good friend. Our good friend. Not sure if his name has been released, so that's all I am going to say about this for now. I am in shock, just got the news from another close friend.

    Need sprag clutch

    What typically happens - especially in a case like yours where it continues to occur multiple times - is vibration from engine, gearbox and prop all come together to form the perfect wave - literally. Constructive wave formation wears out the sprag dogs and/or the races. The tolerances are...

    The "Nine O Nine" B-17 crashed

    I am deeply saddend by the loss of life and total destruction of aircraft yesterday. I wrote on this forum about four years ago that I had just enjoyed an exhilarating experience off the coast of Savanna flying "in formation" with a B-17, known as the "Nine O Nine", for a short distance as...

    Need sprag clutch

    Arrow gearboxes used GM transmission sprags circa late 1950's through late 1960's. Like your idea, these were used on 2-stroke engines. You really need to understand a few things here. 1. The closer to the engine in the gearing arrangment, the smaller your sprag can be. Sprags are...

    Considering the Rotax 915

    I have never installed nor re-sold a motor from a wrecked sled, let's be perfectly clear on that. I used to buy the sleds, run them myself, then pull the motors. Later, as business picked up, I had to farm this work out. All of the engines I resell are from sleds from reputable shops that...

    Considering the Rotax 915

    The only CERTIFIED Rotax are the 100HP 912-S and 80HP 912-F, & -A. I am glad that this has developed into a healthy conversation including many respected gentlemen in the community. I did try to clarify the standards for used Rotax engines to be compared to used Yamaha engines at the start.

    Considering the Rotax 915

    Jim, I have to wonder the same thing. Yamaha makes and sells UAV helos in Japan using 2-stroke engines for crop dusting. http://barnardmicrosystems.com/UAV/uav_list/yamaha_rmax.html They have more money than god to spend on legal and R&D, if they ever decide to get into the same aero market...
