    World's First 160 HP Yamaha EXUP Aircraft Engine!

    Scott McNeil had business at a warehouse next to the airport yesterday, so we met up and he helped me video tape the rotors at speed so I could track them. The rain held off and we decided to get a quick video of a Figure-8 pattern. Scott remarked how QUIET the 160 HP Yamaha installation (172...

    ALL of you people who are so full of hate, who have no patience for the opinions of others who do not agree with you, and who place so much value on what gets said on POLITICAL threads like this need to listen up: Don't take yourself too seriously. That's right. You take yourselves WAY too...

    President trump

    Why is this thread in the <GYRO NEWS> section and not in <OFF TOPIC>? This has devolved into childish, disrespectful name calling by certain "parties" who can't stand it when folks don't agree with their opinions and notions. This next post is about as crazy as they get: Hard to find any...

    This is a lot of fun not having to clean off grease, dirt and oxidation. What an enjoyable install project this is!

    President trump

    I warned you. The President withheld funds approved by congress way over the 60 days allowed by law, let alone morally acceptable by any sane president, to help Ukraine in their efforts to push back invading insurgents and actual army regulars from Russia and Putin. Why did Trump do this? To...

    Thanks, Vance. A call to the Atlanta MIDO for limited testing, and customer notification of the need for re-certification with the new power plant in place, typical requested is 20 hrs. at listed airports though sometimes you can be granted less. Ron Awad always wondered who snitched on...

    Just mounted this 2003 Yamaha RX1 YG4 140HP engine on an Air Command gyroplane this afternoon. What a beauty! It came to me with 300-400 miles on it.

    Testing a fuel for presence of vodka.

    Five engine outs in flight running the same Rotax 914 engines on three of the same type of aircraft in just a few short years is not a fuel type problem. To wit, I am unable to find a single instance of a running Yamaha engine quitting due to vapor lock, whether on one of the countless...

    We are excited to have you start flying another COOL gyro at CUB! Scott will be flying his new Tango (built by Billy Gyro) as soon as he gets the paperwork finished. Funny how there haven't been any gyros flying at CUB in many years, and now we will have three pilots flying them around here...

    I built and raced a 500 HP, 1900 lbs, metallic blue '79 930 on the GT1 circuit for a few years in the early 1990's, even found ways to win half-dozen races against guys who stood on the podium at Le Mans in the same year. That car was radar'ed at Road America at 181 MPH, and the very next week...

    Yeah, I realize there are even single place MAC 90's out there that can probably beat this gyro in a time-to-climb. Gary Goldsberry comes to mind. I'm just havin some fun, so we can all lighten up. But speaking of after market Rotax... Non-standard turbo Rotax engines that I am aware of run...

    My friend (I know, right? Wonders never cease) Scott McNeil provided a lot of help Monday May 19, 2020 and took this video of the third crow hop (test flight) of the WORLD'S FIRST AND ONLY Yamaha EXUP 160HP aircraft, built by Mohawk Aero for Geoff Resney of CH18.

    Last question first: The MAC YG4 conversion is not based on a motorcycle engine, it is strictly snowmobile engines. No personal watercraft, either. None of these are interchangeable with the other. All totally different animals. I have recently sold several YG4 150HP engines for under...

    Oops - meant to add something to this original parry of mine in response to Barry's jab, and deleted the whole darn thing. Please refer to this gentleman's reply to my reply, if you will, for reference. I can't just copy and paste it back into proper sequence.
