    The DiFFerenT new gyro all Italia manufacturing

    Thanks to Google Translate: dDennis the screws do not work directly in contact with the carbon, all the fixings to the frame are made with bushings with shim on the thickness of the tube -0.5mm in the area where the bushings work the thickness of carbon is double, I think I do not have these...

    The DiFFerenT new gyro all Italia manufacturing

    Part 103 only applies to United States aviation activities. You're in the Milan area of Italy, so I wonder your reasoning about meeting the stringent rules to be considered a vehicle instead of an aircraft... Not trying to be critical. I love your methods in design!

    Anybody remember this rotorcraft magazine?

    HOMEBUILT ROTORCRAFT was written & published for many years by Don & Mary Parham, of New Mexico. It's focus was primarily on gyroplanes, particularly innovative, new projects. It petered out after Don retired. EXPERIMENTAL HELICOPTER was written & published also for many years by Stu & Kathy...

    A new take on ultra-light gyroplane

    397cc is not enough horses for a single seat gyroplane, let alone a two seater. A Rotax 503 (that is CCs) single carb (for a lightweight pilot) or twin carb (for a heavier pilot) is barely sufficient for a gyro. A 503 is enough for a two-place trike or light airplane or a powered parachute (w/...

    HEADS up... Little Nellie, from the James Bond movie, is NOT FOR SALE. It is a replica.

    I remember seeing a short video years ago on the 'net showing Commander Ken taking his daughter along on a flight in another one of his machines that had a tandem seat right behind & elevated above the pilot's seat. Maybe this daughter? I don't know how many children he had...

    Back in the saddle!

    What do you mean about "different configurations"? The only landings I watched you make previously were engine-idle, touching down smooth-as-silk ones...

    How are you liking the bigger power plant over the old 503?

    RC Magni M-16

    Anyone else see similarities between his many attempts to get his r/c gyro airborne (post #6) & videos of guys doing the same in their full-size machines by hauling back on the cyclic to take off b/4 the rotorblades are ready to lift?

    Biden as a gyro mechanic

    So you could say if the slim gent in the photo in post #1 is him? And, is that him in the backseat in your 1s. jpg photo?

    Biden as a gyro mechanic

    Vance: Didn't you meet him when purchasing his creation? Edit: Or, are you the 3rd, or more successive, owner of the Predator, & haven't yet met him in person? I see he was last in here on the forum on Thursday evening (MarkG). Listed as still being in Mtn. View, AR. Last post was back in 2018.

    Helicopter electric tail rotors

    Does "Shuffle" refer to the required adjustment on the other three controls in a heli that need adjusting when the pilot moves the first one of those four controls? Is this in all phases of flight? Or, like in this case where the main rotors lost power, you had to overcome the sudden power...

    Additionally, does working them around like a pesky fly, finally tire them out, that they are happy to comply when they learn that you back off from their vicinity if they start heading the way you least bother them from?

    Hey, Wolfie: Seeing that you use your positioning to haze the critters towards where you want them to go, does planting your shadow on or near them bring results?

    Biden as a gyro mechanic

    RE: In that photo of the Brock gyro in post #1, (N144MG) was constructed by Mark Givens, formerly of Antelope, CA, according to the FAA's aircraft registration files. It was certificated back in 1992. He apparently is the same fella who built N142MG, the Predator, now owned by Vance. Can we...

    That bull sure doesn't want to go peaceably. Still resisting arrest, even w/ his hind legs hobbled, & he continues to fight. Too randy, too wild, & too long of not being sociable around the rest of the cow society. Only starts behaving once his hips are pinned by the front end of the rig...
