    ADS-B are You Ready?? Nov 1, 2018

    Hi Ray, Glad to hear it. I'm still working on my ADS-B in solution. I'd love something that worked with my Garmin 660, but Garmin insists on making a proprietary protocol and I can't stomach giving Garming even more for a GDL-39. I'm currently working on a raspberry Pi and IFLY setup. It's...

    AR-1 N923DJ Texas 15-12-18

    I'm so glad Tony is ok. I don't recall the conditions on that day, but strong winds can do odd things.

    When I read descriptions like this, I think of a typically maneuver for an engine out landing, as observed by a novice. Circle an area at low speed to loose altitude, then nose down to stay on the right side of the height velocity curve. I couple that with observations about the engine...

    ADS-B are You Ready?? Nov 1, 2018

    I'm donning my flame proof suite for jumping in here. 1) You may want ADS-B if you fly in/through controlled airspace, live in the class b ring, or want other aircraft to see you. 2) For your ASD-B to be legal, you will need a proper position source. I don't recall the technical spec...

    Best GPS solution... Aera 660 vs iFLY vs iPad and other suggestions

    I have an IFLY 720, and I use IFLY on my android tablet. I love IFLY and am extremely happy with the application. That said, I have a Garmin 660 in my gyro and I really like it. I however do not like the Gamin business model. Garmin essentially only works with other Garmin equipment. --You want...

    Ferry a Vortex M912 from Washington State to North Carolina

    I realize I am a few weeks late on responding. You might try Monarchist on this forum. I know he loves to ferry gryoplanes. I'd guess its at least 3 solid days of flying.

    Adventures of a Gyro Gopher

    I've met John before and seen how he flies. I'd have no hesitation letting him fly my gyro. I will also move gyros. I do charge and prefer the new owner comes along for some flight training.

    Magni M24?

    I have a Magni M24. I very much like it. The machine is well designed and is a dream to fly. It's completely predictable and can be flown hands off once trimmed. I've also flown several other gyros, and I would absolutely buy a Magni M24 again. On the performance side. I weigh a little under...

    St. Patrick's Day Fly-in, Dublin, Texas (9F0) 16-17 March 2018

    I had wanted to attend, but the weather was not cooperating. It's maddening when your socked in with 700 foot ceilings and you know the weather is good at your destination.

    ELA 10 Eclipse - N507EA - New Mexico

    I believe on the back seat of the the ELA-10, there is a translucent window to view the fuel level.

    Dta j-ro

    I saw one in Kitchner Ontario about a year ago while on business. If you get a chance to visit the Toronto (about 1 hour west) area, you might try gyroontario.ca

    Loda

    The hardest part of getting a LODA is knowing where to start. Your not going to find a FAA form to apply for a LODA. The PRA (aka John) was very helpful, as well as some general googling on the topic. I found the following website useful, even though it is for an airplane...

    ELA 10 Eclipse - N507EA - New Mexico

    I agree with Vance. If you can't look in the tank and see the fuel, use a fuel stick. Wood is a wonderful choice, since it floats, should you drop it. --Of course if it is long enough, even dropping it will not be a problem. Calibration is easy. Start with an empty tank. Put 5 gallons in...

    Mini EFIS for gyros

    I have gone with a Garmin 660 for navigation and a G5 for the glass cockpit EFIS. So far I am really liking it. That said, a G5 is in no way necessary. Fortunately the experimental version of the G5 is not super expensive. It's nice to have a "ball", rate of turn, bank angle, VSI, airspeed...

    Sportcopter 2-any have one built and flying? Reviews?

    It's wise to have a plan B (and maybe C and D). But there are limits. If it add 20% to my trip, I'll take a safer route. I've flown across Lake Michigan, where it would have added 100's of miles to go around. That said, I try not to be to far from options. And altitude gives options.

    Sportcopter 2-any have one built and flying? Reviews?

    Was Sport Copter at Oshkosh in 2016 or 2017? I hear they have been working on a new set of products, but I've also heard that story for some time. I'd sincerely love to see them at Oshkosh in 2018, and hope they bring some competition to AutoGyro.
