    New and improved FloatGyro

    Hi Randy, You absolutely right. Mine are amphib Puddle Jumper floats with fully retractable wheels. One of 3 in existence, however mine is setup quite differently from the other 2, as I have done a lot of modifications to enhance performance. Lowered the machine by 2 inches onto the floats to...

    New and improved FloatGyro

    Hi John, Not at all. She is very stable in flight. As an amphibian, I can take off on land or water and can land in water with my wheels down without any issues as the wheels are located around the CG and landing is at a low speed or even zero speed. She definitely needed more power to be fully...

    New and improved FloatGyro

    Finally sold my 8.4m blades and replaced them with Autogyros 8.8m line. Enjoyed the flight after a long hiatus. Interesting, rotors spin slower at approx 310RPM vrs 380 before. Lots of flying to do in the coming weeks/months.

    Gyros, any questions

    I was into trikes, owned a trike then switched to gyros. Best decision of my life. Will never go back. This is soley my opinion and dont mean to offend any trike pilot. For a bystander looking at a gyro vrs a trike, they kinda feel the trike is more like a poor mans airplane with fabric wings...

    Seriously, MTO Failed Prerotator bracket at 70hrs

    Adjustment Of Air Valve Adjustment Of Air Valve Hi Capt Gyro, Tried to adjust this air valve as you described and don't see any difference in time of engagement. Seems like both engage at about the same time. Any suggestions?

    Seriously, MTO Failed Prerotator bracket at 70hrs

    To purposefully design failure into the bracket, there would have to be significant tests demonstrating the critical force that would break the gear box, then purposefully design a bracket to fail under that threshhold. So, if that was not done, I would assume the design of the bracket is not...

    Seriously, MTO Failed Prerotator bracket at 70hrs

    Capt Gyro, The only thing I can say to that is it would be one thing if the engineers intentionally designed it to fail. I suspect that was not the case. Apollo intentionally designed theirs not to fail and and it's on the same gear box. Fara has made reference to that, so I personally feel...
