    Toys in the box

    Two of my favorite things put away for winter, or at least until the next warm day when I can do a fly and ride in one afternoon. I built this little hanger on the side of my shop this summer to put these two toys in to keep them from the dirt and dust. There she sits all clean and dry waiting...

    Down in the corn

    I would like to thank all the people at the convention that helped to get my gyrocopter out of the corn field. When I put it down in the corn I only had a general idea of where it was after I found my way back to the Airport. They did a great job of finding it and coming up with a plan of how...

    Great Day

    No big deal but Yesterday was my first flight off my new 900' grass strip runway on my own property with the KB3 I built last winter. I have to take off a little up hill but it didn't seem to make much difference. It was a beautiful sunny 65 degrees and today they say 68 so I'm going to do it...

    Engine out and fire

    I went flying yesterday after waiting for over a week for my runway to dry up. About 15 minutes and the engine quit and the start button didn't work, I was about 1000' up and before I got to my runway the wiring harness was on fire. It turned out OK though, as soon as I could get off I held a...

    Cylinder head temp

    I have about 12 hrs of flying my new KB3 with the MZ202 engine. The first 8 hrs I was using Avgas 100 LL and my cylinder head gauge was always holding at 4, needles straight across, at full throttle 6,000 RPM. I started using 93 octane gas and now on clime out the needles are both nearly at 5...

    About landing a helicopter

    I would like to know if a helicopter had wheels, 3 like a gyro, could it be landed like a gyrocopter. The Mosquito Air has three legs so there would be no sliding in any direction, every landing would have to be straight down perfect every time?

    Sky Wheels

    I think someone on the forum, a while back said that the extruded aluminum blades would slide into the center section of Sky wheels. I can't use the hub bar that came with the blades that I bought so I tried to make a new hub bar but I'm not happy with that either. If they fit, I would like...

    Story- the most unusual

    What is the most unusual or out of the ordinary thing you ever done with a rotor craft. I saw a state police helicopter trying to blow fish out of the mud into the little stream in the middle of a lake the county had drained. OK, this one I did. My wood stove chimney clogged up one...

    KB3 Build

    Some new pictures. Almost all the parts are powder coated now so the final put together is under way. I've been working on the pre rotator made from old parts I have laying around the shop. I need a 50" flex shaft, the 43 1/2" shaft I have is just too short. The exhaust system still needs to...
