    President trump

    Ben, I must admit that I had an advantage in having had formal training and being an officer. But I did not get a single job at the time commensurate with my having been an officer. So I had to start from scratch. I was the oldest in my PT class. There are many stories like mine. I have a...

    President trump

    What a statement! Hard work pays in the US! If we in the USA do not take steps to preserve what we have, we will end up as a Third World nation too. I call it the "Third Worlding of America" when I see elected leaders wanting to screw the country that even gave them opportunity to get elected...

    President trump

    You are right Ed L. It serves no purpose to foster anger and ridicule on this site. My apologies if I've offended you and anyone else. Wasn't really my intent. Unless the media gets more transparent, I'm afraid nothing much is going to change. A healthy debate though is not a bad thing.

    That intonation sounds a lot like being brainwashed, or perhaps smoking some dope? Man, you are funny!

    President trump

    So what did Obama and Hillary do different?? The truth is beginning to unfold now. What happened to the "truth" regarding Russia collusion? 40 million dollars spent on that truth on Mueller probe?? Fortunately the real truth is beginning to unravel. What is the truth about Gen Flynn and FISA...

    President trump

    I wouldn't hold my breath! What about Tara Read allegation against Creepy Joe? Great candidate for next President? Burisma and million dollar job for son Hunter? Me, an immigrant that came legally 29 years ago say MAGA! I've seen the disgusting erosion of values in the last 10 years before Trump.

    Viral Aerosol Spread Simulation

    Almost 100,000 deaths in the US. Almost 21 million unemployed. Student Education at a standstill. Far Left and Democratic Governors hell bent on destroying the economy of their states, Elon Musk wants to get out of Cal. Don't people get it??? In a sense this a war on many fronts. There is an...

    Viral Aerosol Spread Simulation

    There are Governors of many states that had a lot to do with not preventing the spread and deaths as well. Surprisingly, no one mentions their lapses in what happened. Trump was relying on the advice of Dr Fauci, who in January stated that the virus was NOT a threat to the US. But the travel ban...

    Viral Aerosol Spread Simulation

    Personally, I do not watch CNN or NBC ever, because they have been caught multiple times for lying and miss- stating the actual facts. I believe it will be more relevant to compare the ratio of positive tested infections to deaths due to COVID19 without considering actual co-morbidities to get...

    Gyro History

    Although the Euro style gyros are Bensen clones, these products have evolved in the last 20 years. They are more streamlined than the original Bensens, are fair cross country machines, have decent horizontal stabilizers, have more instructors for training, and are being manufactured in large...

    Gyro History

    Is it beneficial to have faster turning rotors as opposed to slower ones in order to reduce the effect of retreating blade stall at comparatively faster forward speed than for a slower rotor? My understanding is that induced drag of the rotors will also be less as rotor speed increases. However...

    Viral Aerosol Spread Simulation

    Being a home health physical therapist, I have been working everyday with elderly and disabled patients in their homes since this pandemic began. All health care workers in my line of work have to follow a strict protocol of wearing masks and using hand sanitizers. I also disinfect my equipment...

    Suggestions for trim systems

    Welcome. Yes, there is a HAT switch on the cyclic in the AR1. Works well. The speed of the actuator is not the issue, it is the force required to override if there is a powerful actuator. The issue with a very slow actuator is that the response time for the effect is longer. But it is not...

    Suggestions for trim systems

    I had a failure once in my old tandem Air Command, and I too was able to manually override it. In the AR1, I seldom had to use the trim unless I was flying with someone over 200 lbs. I do not use trim on take off, only in cruise. Moreover, I have not had any issues with a fast trim and prefer...

    Suggestions for trim systems

    The Sovik was recommended to me by Vance, and I would rather rely on the judgement of someone who uses it.

    Suggestions for trim systems

    The amount of force required is usually anywhere from 40 to 60 lbs. We have two Tangos in our club. According to the specs on their linear actuators, the force exerted in pull is 1200 N or 270 lbs. This is quite excessive to manually override if something happens to the actuator. We actually...

    Not so fully articulated rotor

    Sorry, I don't mean to be rude but I'm missing the point of the video, other than that the performer has some affinity to Russian Roulette. Guts to fly?? I'd say more like training and skill perhaps? I did notice that there was no jump and not much flight shown in the video. Perhaps a safety...

    I agree the gyroplane accident rate is too high;

    A good thread turning into personal issues. As an instructor with a helicopter background myself, I'm with Vance, Wasp, Greg, Phil, Ferran, and the others who have shed some valuable insight in this thread. I too learned to fly in 1979, long before Gyropedia, and my training was modeled on the...

    I agree the gyroplane accident rate is too high;

    The reward is a successful landing in the case of an emergency necessitating a forced landing.
