    Thanks Joe Thanks Joe looks like a good design! Seems the mast is dual 3" x 1"? My build looks similar, that's why I'm asking. Good day, Chris B.

    Hello all, Anyone know who belongs to this design? Can't seem to remember where I go the pix! Thanks, Chris B.

    CrossFlow PSRU

    Thanks for the input Ross. Don't suppose you have any further data on these incidents? Can't seem to find much on the web; mostly anecdotal stuff on various blogs. Would be helpful if I knew what thing(s) failed. Have it all apart now. Found one potential problem with the input coupling...

    CrossFlow PSRU

    Thank You Norm, Yea, from the ghost drawings I have it is the same direction as the engine (left turning in the sub - from the rear). Also, the planet (engine) is turning the solo drive (the prop) at the orbit of Venus, not the center as the Sun. Self contained pump for synthetic tranny oil...

    CrossFlow PSRU

    Just got a very good deal on a CrossFlow PSRU re-drive. Haven't received yet but believe is 2.36:1 with built-in oil pump for tranny oil; will see when it arrives. Interested in what others have seen/heard of problems with the unit. I believe Tim O'Conner had some dealing with them before. A...

    More on new Ops Limits

    Thanks Paul and Alan, please remember that I am not looking for Private Pilot ticket, just Sport Pilot. It's a bit more nowadays but most certainly cheaper than a Gyro Instructor / Aircraft. Already have ~ 10 hours FW training about 12 years ago, but that is expired and the logbook is long...

    More on new Ops Limits

    So, before giving up and crying in my beer - from my vague understanding, I could get a FW SPilot for a lot cheaper and fly solo in an older Cessna, Piper, etc, then pay some more for three hours (minimum) and take a check-ride with a Gyro CFI? I can get a ticket for FW right up the road. I...

    Thanks Boots, It would take a while anyway - and continue to piss me off more often. Nevertheless, I will follow the regs; with my luck I can't take any more risks than necessary. Sadly, I also believe this will create a spurt of 'renegades'. Chris

    I hear you Otto. Unfortunately it's becoming a Euro-Bucket World (per others) One comment: SUXX! After spending several years of scraping together an engine and materials and education on auto-rotation rotary wing aircraft, I must now sell/give/donate my supplies of low-mileage E22, various...

    Ivoprop

    Capt'n, If the bolt failed under shear, and IF it's AN or 'better', I would really like to find out what caused it to fail in the first place. That's a lot of force (or a crappy bolt)! My opinion only my friend. Chris

    rotor tachometer problem

    Take the ground wire (black - ) wire to the engine. If operated off a battery the sensor is floating with respect to other higher voltage sources, Hook another long wire to the ground around the battery (-) and try different locations. Opinions are like a-holes, everyone has one. That is...

    Subaru Throttle Position Sensor

    Tomhall, You might want to post your questions on the FlySoob group on Yahoo. Some of the people there are fairly knowledgeable an might offer some additional expertise. Worth a try, but may take a few days as you have to register and be 'approved'. Mi dos centavos. Chris
