    Looking for a member.

    Does anyone know how I can get in contact with the guy that owns the single place air command with the Yamaha RX1 engine? Our gyros look VERY similar except he has what looks to be a spoked nose wheel.

    Air worthiness certificate issues on newly built gyro.

    In another thread Danny wrote: "I have a question about airworthiness for a gyroplane. Can a builder of a two seat Dominator get a airworthiness certificate? He did not take any photos or keep a log of the build process because at time he thought the aircraft is an open frame and the only part...

    Question about the "Disc Loading Formula"

    I've browsed through several threads with the "Disc Loading Formula" but have a question. Does the chord of the rotor come in play? I've got 25' Skywheels (8" chord), and an all up flying weight of 835 lbs. This is soon to change as I'm changing the engine. I should drop close 100 lbs off after...

    EA82 For Sale. $600 Runs Great!

    I love my Subaru, but it's a bit heavy for my machine. I could get a longer rotor, but the ones I have right now are so smooth, I am unwilling to part with them. So... I must just lighten the machine a bit. My loss is your gain. See it fly, hear it run...

    I'm back in the air!

    After 8 months of poking around issues with engine power, I finally got it all taken care of. I took a decent pair of heads to an engine machine shop and had them do a valve job and repair a small crack. I replaced my existing "Delta" cams with the stock Subaru cams so I can get rid of the...

    Vance and Kolibri Argument Thread

    For the sake of every thread on the forum turning into a personal argument between Vance and Kolibri, I say let's give them their own thread. All back and forth between the two can be put on this thread so the other threads can remain on topic and relevant. Don't take it personally guys, it just...

    Heavy Gyro flying but not climbing.

    I fly an Air Command Elite single that weighs in at a hefty 631 lbs. (831 lbs all up flying weight with pilot) Most of the extra weight is due to the 90 hp Subaru EA82 and PSRU. I'm flying under 25' SkyWheels. The engine produces 450 lbs of thrust with a 68" 4 blade Warp Drive. During the winter...

    Flying the EA82 in my Air Command.

    A tad slow at the start, but I got it up and flew around just South of the airport. More power than I can shake the cyclic at. See Video

    Aviasport Rotor tach Wiring issue?

    I'm getting a very inconsistent reading from my new rotor tach. Everything seems to work if I just pass a piece of steel over the sensor in a rhythmic manner, but when the engine is running, it seems to get very chaotic. Should I be using shielded wire from the sensor to the tach?

    And now, for my next trick!

    After installing the EA82 and finding out the gear ratio on the PSRU isn't right, (unless I swing a 90" prop). I've started collecting the items I need to put an EJ22 on the Air Command. Right now, I'm needing to find an ECU that will control the spark and fuel injection. Anyone?? I've got an...

    Prop thrust help!

    I've been doing thrust testing to get my pitch set on my 68" IVO and I can only get 300 lbs at 5410 rpm. I borrowed a friend's 70" Warp drive and was able to get 360 at 5400 rpm. Seeing how the RPM was spot on, I did not change the pitch on the 70" warp drive. I also was able to borrow a 62"...

    EA82 max RPM?

    Does anyone know what the max RPM on an Subaru EA82 is supposed to be? What's the best RPM for hp/torque? Cruise rpm? My engine has the Delta cams. Voyager II runs an EA82, does anyone know who I should talk to?
