    Like-New Sport Copter Vortex Available For Sale $17.5K

    Basically you have to take it apart and put it together with pics. Have the seals replaced in the engine and all rubber components. Take it to the Dar , get a new N number and airworthiness certificate and go fly. Nice winter project for someone. I would love to have it but can’t justify the...

    I would like to make him an offer . I am considering travel and the fact that there are no builder logs.

    New bee concerns

    I did my PTS in the same ELA in Racine that you did. Yes it was smooth. On my day a Thunderstorm dropped 2 inches of rain it seemed in minutes. Then the wind kicked up to 25-42 mph As you say it was rock solid. I videoed my stick today . There was a lot of traffic and everyone was using the...

    New bee concerns

    Rotor head is standard ELA Towers are Gyrotech Rotor hub bar and blades are gyrotech Ela cougar 07 The issue may we’ll be me being overly sensitive in rougher air(read chicken) Since I don’t have enough experience to know wats normal. I don’t find myself chasing the airplane at all, it’s just...

    New bee concerns

    4 minutes ago I’m a bit annoyed by the stick vibration and was looking for any assistance. Some days it’s fine and others I’m scared to let go of the stick to take a pic. Thermals get sharp and punchy in Ohio springs-In Summer time they are fat like in Texas but the hot air smooths things a bit...

    Pitch Question

    Vance you are stuck on a phrase not in the gyro handbook? Explain this to me. You said you have not flown a gyroplane that instantaneously responds to cyclic input. I said the same exact thing you just did not read it. The carriage lags behind. The cyclic moves instantaneously period. Explain...

    Pitch Question

    Ok- so we are in agreement after all. (Max power=max usable) Full forward stick =full travel to achieve level flight So in this configuration the gyro flys straight- no climb. So to the first confusion the gentleman asked why does the nose pitch down when stick is pushed forward. The answer is...

    Pitch Question

    Clearly you are poking fun at this point. The original poster wanted to get an answer and was having a hard time visualizing . You posted pics of you. Great. You did not answer his question. S let me ask it once again- You are flying along - there is zero ground reference to you (in this...

    Pitch Question

    Ok there is a total lack of communication. And no you did not answer correctly . We are not in ground effect in the example - We are not in a PTS You have evaded answering because you think I don’t understand the physics which I can assure you I do. So answer only this question then we will...

    Pitch Question

    Also Vance- for perspective. At full speed in your photo 90:knots looks like 9 degrees to me - am I off by 1 or 2?

    Pitch Question

    Ok vance. I’m in agreement so far. does your gyro in these pics know where the ground is? I know YOU know where it is but does the gyro care?
