    Understanding VX and VY to Fly safe.

    This isn't the first time I've heard someone say that hand spinning rotors will facilitate learning rotor management. It sounds like a wise idea to me. When I start my training, it will be in a "Eurotub". Can rotors be spun up by hand in one, or MUST the prerotator be used in Autogyro/Magni...

    New CFI

    Wow! That was quick work getting the CFI....CONGRATULATIONS! I flew PPC's with you just a few short years ago at T14 near Greenville, TX (Walt's place). Still remember you and your wife and dog fondly. I'm toying with the idea of getting into gyros. Hope you are enjoying yours. I make it...

    My new MTO Sport Build - N3232Z

    I think he also flies frequently to Lake Whitney State Park Airport for practice on a "real" runway. I've flown with him a couple of times in my PPC.

    Gyro pilots in St. Louis?

    Bob McDaniel is the airport director at St Louis Downtown Airport. He is a PPC pilot and accommodates PPC's at this busy airport. I'm certain he would allow a gyro regular use of the facility. Give him a call - he seems like a nice guy. I don't know him personally, just know him from the...

    TRAINING AVAILABLE Near Austin Texas

    He was present at a local PPC fly in. All the PPC guys wanted rides. He didn't have his LODA yet so couldn't legally charge. He gave us all a ride for free. Nice Guy. http://www.rotaryforum.com/forum/showthread.php?t=37095&highlight=dayton+magni

    The Making of N327GM...

    500 degrees is a LOT. On my 582 I get concerned when the temps are off by more than 50 degrees. I would think that it is a sensor (or wiring) issue. Have you swapped the sensors around to see it the problem follows the sensor or the cylinder?

    Bensen Days 2013 Tim O'Connor

    I'm trying to learn something: Is that an excessive amount of cone in the blades or is that normal? Looks like a lot to my untrained eye.

    In the Beginning....

    I've got an Experimental Exhibition plane. My operating area is anywhere within 350 miles. I think that large an area is pretty typical with Ex-Exh. Seldom do I leave this area. When I want to leave the 350 mile radius, I don't ask the FAA, I just send them a fax before I leave and then...

    Clean Transportation Prototype For Any Kind of Machine Movement.

    Sorry guys... Anahuac will be IFR tomorrow...

    I've been looking forward to attending for a while now, but the potential weather has kept me away. I do hope that the weather stays clear for those that attend. I will plan on next year. I at least got a shirt and can tell everyone that I was there. Oh.........And I still plan on winning...

    Autogyro MTO Sport Like the Cessna 172 is the world wide gyro trainer of choice.

    I have been on an intro flight with Desmon and his MTO. I'm 235 and I think Desmon said he is 180. Thats 415 lbs of meat and we shot up into the sky with no hesitation. On landing we rolled a long way if we went 20' and I'll bet most landings were in the 5' range. If I recall, the density...

    Congrats, you'll be flying that thing in no time. Just curious, I tried to look up your website that is on your trailer and nothing came up. What have you got in mind with that if you don't mind saying?
