    BarnStormers Spring 2020

    Barry land is probably the best place you could be and have a tailwheel snap off your airplane. Much thanks for the tools and help getting me fixed up so I could get home.

    Best rotor blades for Air Command gyro.

    I fly gyros and fixed wing ultralight. Both are fun, both can kill you. The gyro will be more fun, and less limiting on when you can fly since they do better than fixed wing on windy days. Sorry you are sounding discouraged. You just happen to have a older type gyro that is not as...

    Miss Gidget Twinstarr Gyro up for sale

    It is a beautiful gyro, I wouldn't mind owning it myself.

    Best rotor blades for Air Command gyro.

    Honestly, it wouldn't be a huge job to install a taller mast. You would have to have longer push rods installed, new cheek plates made and a longer pre rotator cable... but your gyro would be safer and you could use lighter blades.

    Best rotor blades for Air Command gyro.

    I take it the air command you have is original, in other words, the seat is fairly low to the ground, short mast, inverted engine. If so, that means it has a high thrust line. Lots of folks have died in high thrustline aircommands. The gyro, even with a horizontal Stabilizer, can do...

    Aerobatics and stuff

    I think the GPS built into the camera was laggy and also showed speeds higher than I was going at times. For example, I was showing indicated airspeed of 150mph at the start of the loops, the GPS showed more like 170 something. But the answer to your question is the VNE is 200 mph

    Aerobatics and stuff

    Yep, and that is why they offer the Xenos! I have not flown in one so can't offer anything much to say about it. I will say that if I had my choice I would rather have a normal tail verses the V tail. The V tail doesn't have as good of a crosswind authority as a normal tail, and in...

    Aerobatics and stuff

    It is a Waiex, which is a v tail version of the Sonex. Very fun, affordable all metal airplane. Most folks build them and use VW engines for power, mine has the 3300 Jabiru which is the most powerful engine you can put in one, makes the plane a blast to fly

    Spring has sprung

    I did live there for 2 years ( Cape Coral ) back in around 2000-2002. Plus my folks are both from Miami and we still have family there. Heck thinking about it, only myself and my sister are the only family that is NOT still living in Florida. I agree that summertime heat isn't what...

    WEBER ENGINE MPE 750 turbo

    Weber engines were going to be the next greatest big thing for cheap four stroke gyro engine power.... then Yamaha sled engines were discovered and it was like everyone who had interest in Webers suddenly dried up. I know Brent Brown fooled with one, not sure if he ever got it going

    Two place Dominator;

    There isn't anything super special about a two place dominator. If you take the single place dominator, the two place is scaled up. The single place turns a 60 inch prop.... the two place turns a 72 inch prop. To do that, the landing gear is longer, the tail is taller, the...

    Vance Triple Crown winner?

    I think if I was just going to the airport to fly my plane around the pattern, it would get boring pretty quick. What was always fun was flying to fly -ins, and just being out at a active airport with other sport pilot friends.

    Vance Triple Crown winner?

    I owned it about a year. It was fun, it turned heads, and was easy to drive ( it rode and drove pretty much just like a car, you would never know it was a 3 wheeler from how it drove ) I spent a pretty good amount of money to buy it and never intended for it to be a long time toy, so...

    Trailer mods

    I hope you folks who don't have much experience pulling trailers understand that even empty, a enclosed trailer large enough for most larger gyros is heavy and SUPER draggy to tow down the road. Will need a strong truck to pull it and you will get terrible MPG.
