Kind of off topic: Is that pitch rod end a one of a kind part or an off-the-shelf piece? If off-the-shelf do you have a part number/source you can share?
Been interested in gyros for many years. Started to get serious about 2 years ago and joined this group. The AV-36 project got me sidetracked but it is essentially finished - at least the original plans restoration. My updates and folding wing option still need to be built and proven. As much as I'd like to built an AV-361 MKII my work space has taken a big hit in the last few years and right now I only have room to build a gyro.Hot Wings
Venturing into Gyros? HBA doesn’t have any info about gyro design.
