    Brakes and rotor head travel (AC).

    IMO aft travel should be no more than 19 degrees, port, starboard (roll) 8 degrees max, in flight you would never see travel that far in any case, level disk with full fwd stick

    2024 LSA Gyroplanes

    Having flown many of the side by side variants I find the Magni very cosy inside (if you like rubbing shoulders with your pax it’s fine) In the M24 the seats are slightly staggered to enable a reasonable comfort. The Cavalon is nice but it does not offer the finest view …The polish machines...

    N800YA Calidus - Idaho 9.6.23

    Vance you miss the point …land a gyro like it’s supposed to …hold off until the aircraft comes to a ground speed standstill ….lower the nose …what could be safer or more simple?…any instructor not teaching that technique from the outset needs some retraining IMO. It also dilutes the debate...

    N800YA Calidus - Idaho 9.6.23

    Why was he putting the nose wheel down while the aircraft had fwd speed is my question? …I would like to chat with his instructor….let the crowd who complain about coupled nose wheels think about that for a moment …a quick reminder in case it’s overlooked 🤔 the correct landing technique is to...

    CCW Rotorway

    Ok so if you chop the throttle the nose will yaw …as it will if it loses power from say a mechanical failure I react with my feet to correct the yaw my brain tells me to correct the yaw not to firts think about what pedal to push ….that said I love your collection of helicopters 😁 top draw 👌

    CCW Rotorway

    I don’t even think about it ….my brain tells me what way the nose is going and I use the foot to fix the yaw …swop between 44/22 and MD 500 no issue

    It’s a lot of hours …..we fly around 50 hours a month and on certain task based flying it’s exhausting …that’s 50/hours/ month ( ..1000/ year is 83 / month odd) 2000 is double that …we are governed to a max of 90 hours a month by SA CAA legislation...some of the most experienced guys I know who...

    EGT Rotax 912

    I’m toying with the idea of removing my EGT sensors from a 912, after all with the carb version we have no means to adjust the mixture in flight like we do with the Lycoming or other aircraft engines I have owned a M16 that I flew to TBO that did not have EGT sensors, with not a days problems...

    Wow …this comment does not augur well with me 😡 I do not know the parties involved and no one has been proven to have caused the accident (yet) so far it’s a tragic event ….with respect you should be less enthusiastic to make such comments IMO

    Incident - Cavalon N518DT - Arizona

    Is it easy to inspect the mast welding by the tank? a known weak point? asking because I’m rated on it as an instructor not a test Pilot 😐 so no sinister intention with my question, my personal opinion and I say again personal opinion…the AG offering does have some very questionable...
