    U-Joints for shaft driven pre-rotator

    Hello everyone. What's everybody using for u-joints for their shaft driven pre-rotators? The electric motor that I'm looking at has a 1/2 inch output shaft, with a 1/8 inch keyway. I haven't decided what bendix unit to use for the upper. Anyway.... looking for options for the u-joints...

    Better, or About The Same?

    Looking for opinions on two pre-rotator options. I'm wondering which system is capable of producing the best pre-rotation RPM.... the dominator hydraulic pump/motor, or a Wonderlich flex shaft using a rubber wheel at the prop. Anybody use both of these systems in the past, and do you have a...

    Mountain Bike Disc Brakes?

    Had a random thought last night.... and I'm curious if anyone has tried using mountain bike disc brakes on their gyros? I bought a set from Amazon for about 80 bucks..... it looks like they would be fairly easy to install on my Genesis, and they are very light weight as well. They are based on...

    Comtronics Helmet Question

    Quick question.... I have a Yaesu (Vertex / Standard) VXA-220 radio.... it came with an adapter that allows two plug-ins. One for the headset and another for a PTT. I'm doing some testing and learning how the radio operates.... my comtronics helmet cable doesn't fit well into the Vertex...

    Traveling with a gyro

    Would like some thoughts on the basics of trailering a gyro. 1. On a Bensen style gyro (read Genesis), do most people strap down the tail, and leave the nose wheel up? Or strap down the nose wheel and leave the tail up? Of course both main wheels will be strapped down. I'm leaning towards...

    HKS 700E - Carb Tuning Gremlins - Any HKS Experts Out There?

    I thought I would start a different thread for this, to hopefully get better visibility to my problem than having it buried in my build thread. Here's what's going on..... I was going to sync the carbs tonight, as the last time I did engine runs, I had a rough idle, and was unable to get the...

    Simple, Stupid Question?

    Do K&N air filters come pre-oiled? I'm changing to new air filters on the HKS, and it sure looks to me like the new filters are already oiled?

    Super Glue Removal from Painted Fiberglass

    Well, I feel like a complete idiot, and I'm pissed at myself as well. While putting the rubber trim on the edge of my Genesis pod, I somehow managed to smear quite a bit of it on the exposed paint. I didn't notice it until much later, after it had set. Does anyone have a good method of...

    Registration & Inspection Process

    Quick question..... I believe that I have to file all the FAA paperwork for EAB registration and get their acceptance that all is in order, before I can have the airworthiness inspection done. Is that correct? Also, it seems that the paperwork requires a weight and balance form..... How do I...

    Red Lion Rotor Tach Lag?

    Well, I figured out the proper dip switch settings for my application, which needed to only have two pulses per rotor revolution. It seems to be working, but there is a serious lag time for the readout to show. When I hand spin the rotor head, it takes between 15 - 20 seconds for a reading to...

    Bicycle - Locking Brake Levers

    Normally I am pretty handy at finding the parts that I need for my build, but I'm stumped on this one, and am wondering if anybody out there can help me. I'm looking for bicycle brake levers that will mount to a 1" handlebar (control stick in my application). They need to be able to be locked...

    Mentone Attendees - Favor?

    I am hoping that I can ask a favor from someone who is attending Mentone. Could someone take some detailed pictures of the hydraulic pre-rotator that Carl Schneider is using on his HKS 700T powered gyro? I may copy that design someday.... I have traded e-mails with Carl about it, but a picture...

    Silly Question - Trailer Storage

    I'm about to start keeping my gyro in an enclosed trailer, which is kept outside..... I live in Texas, and during the those 110 degree days...... it gets really hot inside the trailer. I don't think that would cause any issues with the gyro, but just thought I would put it to the group...
