I'm able to read ASI & RRPM indicators:Although I am not able to read the rotor tachometer;
That appears to me to be too much indicated airspeed for the rotor rpm.I'm able to read ASI & RRPM indicators:
T (sec) RRPM IAS
0-------186----0 -pre-rotator released, stick moved forward, take-off roll started.
5-------173---63 -stick moved back, as if pilot tried to rotate at proper speed
18------239---81 -power increased to max
26------302--100 - stick moved forward.
Rotor brake light was ON all the time.
What happened here?
If this was N327JD:
According to a witness, the gyroplane used more runway than typical to become airborne before it began to drift toward the left edge of the runway. About halfway down the runway, the gyroplane departed the runway, bounced over a taxiway, porpoised, and came to rest inverted. The witness stated that he saw no indication that the pilot had attempted to slow down or correct the left deviation from centerline. After the accident, a medical evaluation identified that the pilot had experienced a cerebral infarction (stroke). Symptoms often develop suddenly and can include numbness or weakness of the face, arm, or leg; confusion; difficulty speaking; trouble seeing; severe headache; and loss of coordination. It is likely that the pilot was incapacitated by the stroke during the takeoff roll.
Probable Cause: The pilot's incapacitation during the takeoff roll due to a stroke.
I have no way to judge the veracity of the report above if this is the aircraft in the video. I suspect Tyler is familiar with this accident since it occurred in his neck of the woods.
