    Picking Rotor Blades!

    Easiest and best bet....call Sportcopter, tell them what you are flying, send in check, wait for blades, install them and go fly with no adjustments, worries, shake, shimmy or hop. Above from experience.

    Another Icon passes

    Met Ed at a Flabob fly-in many years ago. Ed was very gracious and let me park my RAF in his hangar for a week after I nursed her in with a bad ignition unit and couldn't fly out until I replaced it, along with Ed's help. Rest in peace, Ed.

    Our double engine gyroplane!

    "We do not want to stand by and allow them to make some of the same dangerous mistakes that have been made here with some previous builds….and it is obvious that some of their gyros do not have an HS." One "self-educated expert" here says that they're not needed. I bet all those guys that...

    Ea-81 and 100LL

    Some people with Soobs that ran 100LL consistently have had serious valve damage after awhile. There's also an additive to scavenge the lead from gas. Can't think of the name right now, but you should probably carry it with if you run a tank of 100LL.

    engine running hot

    Had the same problem. After consulting the gauge maker, was told to ground the temp gauge by itself somewhere. The temp gauge does not like shared grounds. It can be on the same ground bar, just not attached to any other grounds from other instruments or radios. I went through the same...

    Solo

    Hi Jim, Would you believe that he'll be 15 in December? He's as tall as me and wears a size 12 shoe! Just started high school and is taking honors classes. We're still "rescuing" him. His parents are worse than ever. I'll see if I can find newer pic.

    Solo

    Couldn't find my old account, user name and password, so I just re-registered. Stefanos is now 14 and just started high school. Hot dog business cost me my McCulloch J2 and I'm still digging my way out. It was a money pit after Wachovia went tits up and started laying everyone off and closing...

    Solo

    My instructor, who was 400 miles away, was the closest gyro-head that I knew of. There were a few illegal desert pilots around, but that wasn't too encouraging. I had about 40 hours of dual before the flight. I didn't have any other choice if I wanted to fly. My gyro was identical to my...

    Solo

    Not too many CFIs are going to let you solo in their gyro that they use for instruction and maybe make a living with. I took my lessons 400 miles from home, was signed off for solo, came back home and my first solo flight was also my gyro's maiden flight (2 birds with 1 stone). A little...

    Finally, a prerotator that gets 200 RRPM!

    Let's see...I haven't posted in a couple of weeks.....ha-ha, but this thread interested me. (I do visit almost daily). I pretty much solved the twisting mast problem when using a high rpm pre-rotator. Remove those 3 pieces of aluminum from between the plates and replace them with a one-piece...

    McCulloch J-2 for Sale

    $50,000 J2? $50,000 J2? I've been in contact with John. I initially told him I thought he'd have a hard time, as most go around 30K. After looking at the photos he sent me and the extras that come with it, if I had 50K it would already be on the way to him. He has parts that are impossible...

    External Fuel Tanks on RAF?

    RAF Add-0n Tanks RAF Add-0n Tanks This is a photo of an aluminum tank that I was about to install on my RAF/Sparrowhawk on each side when I owned it. I had the logistics figured out. One tank would be slightly smaller than the other one because of the engine layout on each side and bumping...
