    A new take on ultra-light gyroplane

    A Rotax 582 mounted onto the end of a tube took some engineering! Nice job, I have always thought about efficiency in design and the tube is very efficient

    front wheel drawings

    I rebuilt mine, a well engineered nosewheel, on a 582 clipper.

    A new take on ultra-light gyroplane

    A completely off topic question for the SkyRotor designer. JonSu, have you designed any fixed wing aircraft?

    I say yes if that is an all flying tail

    A new take on ultra-light gyroplane

    The SkyRotor is a very efficient design. I have not seen any other design that can be built by home builders that would come close. All aircraft are a compromise.

    A new take on ultra-light gyroplane

    Not smart enough to change your design. I took a closer look and all is well, just as you have it. What is the max horsepower you would recommend

    A new take on ultra-light gyroplane

    That was a lot of mechanical drafting, drawing all those parts, not to mention all the dimension work. Question for the designer, pertaining to the rotor head tower to fuselage connection. You show rubber inserts, isolating the tower from the fuselage. I feel they will be damaged over time by...

    Any Dominator builders current or future

    Yes, for a blue head 582. Not like you have pictured. Try Air Creation in Az. Urethane

    A new take on ultra-light gyroplane

    Off topic but related. Has anyone given any consideration on the use of a 1/2in drive cordless impact gun to drive a pre rotator? insert it into a 90 deg gear that drives a thick wall aluminum tube into a bendix. Throw it on the ground or insert into a holster. Or train your dog to take it back...

    Ken Wallis Wooden Rotor Blade Construction Revealed

    If one could build the blades, that pretty much leaves the rotor head to be constructed on a CNC. The cost of a Gyro would would be pretty hard to beat.

    It takes all kinds 2 make the world go around. Vance always says the politically correct thing, the smartest person on the forum don’t ya know, sad. Butts in uninvited, and starts running his mouth. Kinda like a stiff shirt, stiff neck prick that got his ass beat a lot in school, lol.

    Eugenii You have posted a dimensioned set of drawings that required a lot of work to produce. Thank you so much for that. It will save a lot of time. Much appreciated! I wish you could profit from your ideas personally. The SkyRotor will leave the computer screen and fly next year! Ben

    A new take on ultra-light gyroplane

    Hot Wings Venturing into Gyros? HBA doesn’t have any info about gyro design. I see you have found the latest and greatest design. JonSu is talented and freely shares info. So very nice. If you find some info on the forces required to shift the rotor would you please share? Ben HBA’s most...

    A new take on ultra-light gyroplane

    I have a question about the CofG using the Polini Thor 250 and a Helix Carbon fiber prop. Since you can’t very easily the rotor head, how much should this engine move forward? When the ac is hanging from the Jesus bolt, pilot seated, what is the attitude of the fuselage? Thanks Ben

    A new take on ultra-light gyroplane

    I always find good deals when I can't afford it! I've gotta buy windows, siding, roofing and insulation. Would rather have the Aixro-50. Having said that, the Poloni Thor 250 has a few good reviews. By people that know what they are talking about. Kevin are you an Aixro dealer?

    A new take on ultra-light gyroplane

    Just a quick look, Poloni Thor 250, $3650 no prop. Good enough for me no doubt. JonSu, I will take note of that prop manufacturer. Thanks for all you do! Ben
