    Hi from Vaca Moo Airport in East Texas !

    Yes, I finally got Desmon to come take a look at my gyro and he found a few things that weren't unsafe but were installed incorrectly. Thanks !

    MTO helmets

    My gyro has regular GA plugs so I use my old Air Force Gentex and it works fine.

    New foam in a Calidus seat

    No Title I bought some Premium High Density Cushion Foam at Walmart and cut them myself. My seats and backs have never felt so good and it cost me less than $20 !

    Why are you against censorship and commies? You must not like our President because he loves both censorship and Russians. That means you are not patriotic. Are you also against the military and the flag? If you think the previous sentence was stupid then you must not like the daily news and...

    Hi from Vaca Moo Airport in East Texas !

    Thanks for the advice. Yes I went to Mentone this year to see the various models all together. For now the MTO is filling the ticket but as soon as I start going to the fly-ins around Texas I'll figure out if I need something different.

    Hi from Vaca Moo Airport in East Texas !

    Thanks Vance ! I know doing the condition inspection is a regular necessary evil in every owner's lives so it's not a big deal for some here but this is the first one I do one to a gyro and I'm very glad I did it myself in order to get to know more about my machine.

    Hi from Vaca Moo Airport in East Texas !

    How to determine which MTO gimbal head version?

    Just to be clear I finally got a hold of Terri at AG USA and as people here have commented, she was extremely helpful. She also told me all AutoGyros currently in the USA have Gimbal Head 2. After finally completing the condition inspection, I went for a flight this afternoon. Smooth as silk...

    I've flown a couple of Titaniums now and they are finished like a high end Mercedes Benz.

    Calidus Instructor Pack

    Seems like this thread will never die so let's talk about the TAG Titanium with it's titanium frame and mast, is that better than the Sport Copter? I know helicopter rotorheads are made of titanium so it must be good.

    Calidus Instructor Pack

    More truthful words can not be said !! It happens to me all he time when someone tries to tell me off about politics and is so off the mark I just have to reply. I always ask them to tell me in their words how it's better for them personally but I ask them to answer without using any talking...

    I disagree but that's the beauty of this, I can do it respectfully.

    Torque values to attach blades to hub - MTO Sport (2010 model)

    Thanks Tim. I would normally think the higher the better but was worried I might squish the blades somehow, they look so fragile. Anyway Chris Lord, who I think has to do with AutoGyro USA now, told me to use the one in the latest 100 Hour Inspection Checklist so I went with 20Nm (= 14.75...

    Torque values to attach blades to hub - MTO Sport (2010 model)

    I find this so interesting. You post a picture of a crash and there are 20,000 experts giving their expert opinion. I post a simple torque question on something that people do practically every week and none of the people who own MTOs and do this have an opinion. Very strange.

    Torque values to attach blades to hub - MTO Sport (2010 model)

    Since I was going to torque the blades to the hub right now this seems important. I might have an old Line Maintenance Manual and old Heavy Maintenance Manual. Line Maintenance Manual MMM-MT-B_14-11-19 Heavy Maintenance Manual MMM-MT-E_16-06-13 Both of these show on “ 01-12-00 Torque Values “...
