    Group 5 Helicycle for Sale

    Stan - thanks for the kind words, I wish we'd of had more time that day to visit and talk Helicycles. Heliboy - I estimate it would take me 20-30 hrs of work to remove the transmission, including all the little things like building a fixture to support the engine and frame. I'm told it can...

    Potential Helicycles for Sale

    There are a couple for sale on Barnstormers. They're selling cheaper than you can build them for these days, just in time for me to try selling mine.

    Group 5 Helicycle for Sale

    I have decided to put my Helicycle up for sale. It was completed and first flown in 2013 and has accumulated 158 trouble-free hrs. However, at the last oil change I discovered small metal flakes in the main transmission filter. Bore scope investigation found a small chip on the face of one...

    a few HC videos ..........

    FLIR Videos FLIR Videos I recently uploaded a couple videos I took with a FLIR camera about 5 minutes after landing and rolling the Helicycle into the hangar. The outside temp was about 33 F so some parts look hotter than they really are, the temp scale is on the right and the top left shows...

    Not a gyro but just as fun

    Miss Pearl belongs to the DAR that signed off my Helicycle. He flew it in to do the inspection. Amazing detail on it, not a bolt or nut that isn't polished. If I remember correctly, he said it started as a 115MPH plane and is now a 140MPH plane with the tail wheel conversion and all the speed...

    For evaluation....

    Ok, I thought you were trying to decide if it was scratched based on the picture. If that didn't happen during cabin install/removal, it would have to be a serious shake to get the cabin to hit those fittings. I don't think a hard landing would do it without leaving a bent frame.

    For evaluation....

    Ever see the reflections on a shiny, black car? Did the seller tell you there are marks on the back of the cabin or are you just inferring that from the picture?

    For evaluation....

    Those are all just reflections of the ground/shop floor under the tanks. Nice shine on the paint job. Edit: Looking closer, I think it's the reflection of the cyclic mixer.

    Quicksilver and a Helicycle

    What a surprise, I came to the forum to post a link to the video and find a thread already started on it. This was yesterday evening, just before dark, about 75 degrees and smoooth. We were 1500 - 2000 AGL, he likes to fly on the high side but at least I didn't have to worry as much about...

    GREAT news for EAB in Kansas!

    This article http://www.aopa.org/News-and-Video/All-News/2014/May/22/Homebuilders-win-tax-exemption-in-Kansas.aspx says the bill was signed by the governor May 14th so that sounds like it went through, not sure why the senate web site says it died in committee, maybe it split into a different...

    July 6 2014, A nice day to video!

A lot more people are watching than you think, at the last heli meet I attended almost everyone I talked...

    GREAT news for EAB in Kansas!

    Chris, I'm working on filling out the tax appeal forms to send in for the exemption but there's a $100 fee to file the appeal, and after seeing the senate web page I wondered if this is really a done deal or will I just be paying an extra $100 on top of my taxes. If you find out anything one...

    I hope I'm wrong, but looking at the Kansas legislature website it appears that this bill died in committee May 30th. Mike
