It got to the point I can only get the rotors spinning up to 70 but still was able to manage that...

    PowerFin verses Warp Drive props

    Well I finally got my new Warp Drive prop. With Dave's help it's on my gyro and I am flying it. The prop flys different then the PowerFin. I guess you trade off one performance for another, over all I like it better. The PowerFin would climb a lot faster then the new one but it flys faster...

    Having fun with my GYRO

    Had a great day flying yesterday in my gyro. I was doing touch and gos around the pattern at Hemet airport.

    I lost interest in flying Gyros!

    That is at airports. I have come to the conclusion after flying my Gyro at El Mirage this last week with Dave that flying my Gyro at the airports are not as fun.
