    Rotordyne Blades

    Here in the UK we've recently had several sets of Rotordynes unbond. Is there any serial numbers relating to good/bad blades or any way of telling if they had come from the "good" company that made them. Thanks

    Expensive Copies

    Magni M16 Subaru

    Hopefully you will see a picture of my Magni M16. It is at the airfield where it is to be kept while I finish off my licence. Pictured is the test pilot David Beevers.
