    interest is fading.....

    Ron I know the feeling. I owned a Hobby Shop for 13 years and flew everything I could get in the air, and now I only own two RC choppers and I dont even fly them any more. I sold the Gyro and never even sat in the seat with the engine running. Lost all interest in gyros that I had. I am going...

    B8M Parting out or take it all

    I am selling my B8M for parts or take it all. I have a complete frame, Rotor Head, rudders (2), Mac72, Prop, Prop Hub, Pre Rotator (New), Seat Tank (New), this machine has toe Brakes on the mains. Disassembled for polishing. I would say the motor would need going through before using. I would...

    Wife says its goyya go.

    Over 400 hits and not one call. People dont seem to be looking at buying used gyro's as much as one would think I guess. I could understand skepticism of a POS but come on people. This is a proven machine that is well known in the gyro community. Man this is depressing. I would entertain...

    PRA going down hill fast!

The answer makes no real differance to me since IM nowhere near Mentone other then at convention time Again I...

    death spiral, behind the powercurve, chasing cows and gators

    My only question is this. Is that stick shake normal and present in all gyros? To me if something is moving that much there must be harmonic events going on somewhere in the moving parts but I dont know that much so Im just asking I guess. Trying to understand all of the event tha ttake place...

    It's here and ready for testing...

    I have no problem with giving the time to get it straight. I was led to believe that September 1 was the turn on date and when it didnt happen it led to this inquiry. I was merely asking since it didnt go online Sept 1. Take all the time you need to get it right.

    The Prater Machine

    I have decided to go a little further with HS than what is already on the Prater Machine. There is enough room between the top of the vertical fin and the rudder to install a HS which will place the HS on top directly behind the center of the Prop. I am going to add a HS the same size as the...

    LSA Gyro Petitions DENIED by the FAA - AGAIN !

    Thank you for that answer. It does put it in a perspective I understand. But it does look like the man keeping us down doesnt it? :)

    LSA Gyro Petitions DENIED by the FAA - AGAIN !

    How about raising the weight for ultralight to 300 pounds or somewhere in that range. 254 lbs is not a realistic number to achieve in a lot of gyro classes as well as fw ultralights. Im looking at this from a safety perspective since 300 lbs would allow for a more robust airframe for all...

    It's here and ready for testing...

    So am I to understand that you have designated testers?, and who is the public? I thought I was a member, and the public would be the people that are not paid PRA members. Was anyone informed that there were designated testors so that is why I am asking. Not to piss anyone off, just get some...
