    Kissing the runway.

    Well this is really not what you want to do. Yesterday It was windy 20 to 30 with gust to 35. It was 80 to 90* cross wind from my runway. I have taken these days to improve my windy flying experience just in case I ever get stuck somewhere and it is really windy. It was probably the...

    Blade Tracking

    The first time I put my blades on they seemed smooth as a babies behind. Ron Menzie did some adjustments and smoothed them even more. This was in December of 06. When I flew again in June the rotors had to be adjusted again. Now a few weeks ago the blades began to shake again. I tracked them...

    Verticle Speed in a one or two place gyro landing

    The typical gyro landing is really like a bird landing on a twig. You just touch down, if you have any throttle reduce it immediately, just a little back cyclic to arrest the forward flight and it causes an immediate stop or little roll, hold the nose up for a few seconds then push forward to...
