    Please don't fool around with Sandy!!!!

    As a casual observer and a whopping 2 hour student, I would hate to read about another ground incident and gusty winds. I don't want to read about someone balling up their machine or themselves. I know it's tempting to get out there and try and duplicate those cool videos where the guys are...

    New Private Pilot On Board!

    Well, look what is on Ebay @ $6500

    Wasn't there a whole thread on here somewhere about this gyro, hurt feelings, and people being jerks? This looked like it, but I may be wrong. It wouldn't be the first time and it definitely won't be the last! This may be a GREAT deal for someone - you decide. If I remember correctly it is...

    Weight & Balance?

    Hey everyone - I am nearing my build (really, I am!) and my DAR would like me to complete a weight and balance on my Monarch Butterfly. I have all other paperwork, notarizations, and forms completed....I think. I have even done my hang test. I am about to go out to my garage and weigh her...

    Anyone Able To Do An Airworthiness On a Butterfly?

    Hello- I have a Monarch Butterfly that is about ready to go....just attach the rotorblades which I have in the crate next to it. I was wondering if anyone might be passing through to Benson Days that might veer off I75 for 5 minutes to my house. I will be at Benson days but I'd rather not tow...

    What do you think of these helmets?

    I am looking for a full-face helmet for my Butterfly Gyro. I am used to full-face from riding motorcycles and I would rather have the full face and wind protection they offer. Does anyone have suggestions? This is what I've come up with so far...

    582 coolant "tee" bottle wanted

    Looks like the coolant expansion tank with the tee bottom for my 582 has a small slit in the neck. Anyone have a good spare? I'll trade you for cash :) Thank you. Bob
