    Renewed interest in gyros in Texas

    Gary, one question... what is your end goal/machine/expectations? Which gyro would you be able to afford and keep maintained? Something to ask before going through training. If it is a single seat gyro, there is a transition you'll need to make from the trainer to the single place gyro.

    3rd lesson

    One question, does your instructor own or have hours in a single place? Magni to Bensen transition is one of the most challenging mainly due to stick pressures, rotor energy and stability changes. I trade hours between a Magni and Air Command. The Air Command is centerline thrust, so going to...

    AG-1 - Las Vegas - N15LU

    Another outstanding design quality! With the stick full aft and no blade flapping, Sport Copter and Magni have a non-interference designs where the rotor will not contact the tail or prop. (I'll throw in Air Command and RFD as well). Pilots should not be put in the situation to compensate for a...

    Anywhere Map Quadra LT GPS

    This GPS is in new condition. It has been along for the ride as a backup and now no longer needed. Last maps update was 2016, so a new subscription will be needed to bring current. http://store.controlvision.com/anywhere_map_quadra.html A great addition for any gyro! Comes with: Quadra 12V...

    Calidus frustration

    Ray, There is a Certified Rotax service center at Bulverde Airpark (I don't have their card handy) and allegedly a rotax repair shop at Boerne Stage Airport http://www.5c1.net/maintenance.htm. A bit further away is http://www.theaeroworks.com/ I use Wayne for all my Rotax work and annual...

    Big Day for me

    No fun when you're flying along and... hey, no back stick... &%$#, one hand on the luggage and one hand to land... Learned my lesson and strap stuff in the back seat like a cargo net with the rear seat belt. Definitely would remove the back stick for more stuff and longer trips. Sounds like a...

    Gyros, any questions

    I agree for single place machines and students. I wouldn't have been up in my AirCommand, but I've been in those conditions having fun in my Magni.

    New rotax swappable with the 914?

    Don't forget the addition of an intercooler. You'll need to account for additional airflow and a path to get it there.

    New raf / sparrowhawk

    Can the rotor touch the tail with the stick full aft?

    New raf / sparrowhawk

    Think about the animation and what the type of airflow the prop is getting. I would assume the extra performance is from better airflow to the prop. Another good animation: http://www.airtab.com/how-do-they-work.htm Airtabs are only $2.75 each. A rivet per tab just to make sure they stay put...

    "Eurotubs" vs. "xxxxxxxxxxxx"???

    Vance, Out of all the gyros, the Predator is at the top. Is the main reason the IO-320/power?
