    Seriously, MTO Failed Prerotator bracket at 70hrs

    Im very disappointed!Discovered a failed prerotator bracket during my annual. Unbelievable as I never push it hard and seldom prerotate to 200. I believe the high incidence of failures in Autogyros Prerotator brackets warrants a recall on those parts. This is absolutely preposterous that a high...

    EZ Custom System:to remove/install rotor

    Guys, I came up with a really cool and easy way to install and put up your rotor or take it down. I think the pictures are self explanatory and gyronauts are welcome to try this. You will need a ladder like mine that fits from the ground to the top of the mast. Fit it with a pulley or buy one...

    Time for an upgrade

    Had a blast flying this beast this summer. Now, its time for an upgrade. 130HP of pure muscle to manage the extra weight of floats and passenger. Oversized 84mm piston (ceramic coated) replacing original 115HP Pistons.(i believe 79mm) plus custom camshaft work to take the extra load. I'm...

    Affordable Insurance List Your Name Here

    Finally, today is a good day. I spoke with my friend who owns an insurance company. They have agreed to structure a program for gyroplane pilots. They will be working through a large Foreign Insurance company to offer affordable rates to all. They need a list compiled, so here goes:

    Getting Gyro Insurance? Is there a way?

    Hi Everyone, Ive looked into Gyro insurance before but never purchased it due to the prohibitive cost. Is there a way all of us gyronuts could sign up as a group and present the large group to an insurance company to benefit us all with a group insurance policy. This maybe an area that may or...

    High Thrust Line Machine

    Hi Guys, before i proceed with my modification for my float MTO gyro, I want to pick some opinions out there. Knowing full well the MTO on Floats is high thrust line because of the floats,I'm considering installing a lightwight composite horizontal stabilizer between the main vertical...

    Reveresible Pitch prop parachute system

    I just thought of this. How about a reversible pitch prop hat is easily activated in the event of a bunt over or rotor failure. As you head nose down toward the ground, the switch is activated which repositions the pitch on the main propeller. You gun your engine leading to a reversal in airflow...

    Gyro-brs-airbag concept

    The sudden flurry of accidents got me thinking about the BRS in gyros. I know most of you experienced gyro flyers out there dont believe in gyros needing BRS's. Guess what.. Ask those none believers who got saved with a BRS on their airplanes and lived to see another day. They became avid...

    Pitch stability

    This is a general question about pitch stability in gyros. Most gyronaughts are of the consensus that there definitely is a neeed for the horizontal stabilizer, be it high, central or low. Believe it or not but i know of one who absolutely refuses to use one on an RAF... No way Josey will I...
