    Streamlining for tubes?

    I never got around to it, but folding some poster board around and stapling the trailing edge should give someone an approximate idea if it is worth pursuing. Take all of about 10 min and cost about 3 bucks. It might flutter, and if your worried about staples and you prop, you could just glue...

    Chinese military gyros.

    I flew against the Hawk Radar system in Yuma AZ. They couldn't see me until I wanted them to by banking a hard 90 degree turn for reflectivity off the underside of my rotors. As for the top down radar of the Aerostats, they are very easy to beat as well. In order for them to work with the...

    Well, I'll be! Wifey said she "knows someday I'll fly gyros again!"

    I know, but I don't know that I'm going to be in that price range for a Gyro.

    Well, I'll be! Wifey said she "knows someday I'll fly gyros again!"

    After much flying in fixed wings and some in my paramotor, I have linked up with a flying buddy who has an ultralight seaplane. We have been talking about all manner of future aircraft for us and he says if gyros are your favorite, you should get one. I mentioned this to Kat who remarked (she...

    A low speed upset of Cavalon 425AG at KSMX.

    All the training and all the past sucessful models in the world will never convince me of the superiority of a linked nose wheel. What I dont get is, they look the same and castering is easier to design so why would any one design one that way? Glad no one was seriously hurt.

    Trump - Day 24 of 4 years

    Theres more to our country than just the number of urban centers. Look at how many counties he won. Thats shows that people ALL over the country supported him. I am reminded of two things. Once a friend who was a travel agent for foreign tourists was compaining that she had to constantly battle...

    Gents, the problem with islam and muslim terrorists is its like a game of "Wack-a-mole"! Yes it gets tiresome popping hadjis, and more just keep springing up, but if you don't nail'em when they show themselves. Your garden gets overrun in no time! Like Sweden for instance;)

    Any designers for hire?

    Um....yes. Um....yes. Merry Christmas Paul. It seems to me that the O.P. may have decided after doing some homework that the lack of "Bunt-o-bility" of the tractor designs was in his life longevity favor. The fact that most of the gyros are not tractors has a lot to do with the developmental...

    President trump

    They are playing with fire in my opinion. Using legal trickery to strip the majority of a rightful decision has not worked out well historically. I hope the people get what they voted for.
