Thank you Leigh (Resasi).Congratulations Nicolas you appear to have done a fine job and built a great machine.
It was good to see you really enjoying the flying. Certainly a very convincing demonstration of faith in the stability of the design.
I would be most interested in your search for a good light prerotator for the Dragon Wings
The long HS, as can be seen from attached photo, acts as tall tail too.Beautiful work, Nicolas! It appears this gyro is built to meet your mission - flying low level off of sand runways. I can see you guys are having lots of fun. There are only two things that separate this gyro from perfect - IMHO. They are - a tall tail to minimize prop rolling torque (a safety issue), and a couple more feet of moment on the stab for added pitch damping and improved response with no power. Both can be done with same structure and minimum, if any, added weight.
Good job :wave:
Hello Peter.Helo Nicolas and Giorgos..!
Is that a gyro good for beginers as me.....and other newbees..?
We are some friends in swedish rotorflygklubben building the "Humla"...bumbelbee.
I like the stab on your gyro...and would like to build the same on my bumblebee.
Is that recomendable...?
regards...Peter from Sweden
I am not axaggerating but, flying this gyro you have a feeling that it knows to fly itself better than pilot. It corrects itself before any help from pilot.Nicolas, your gyro is one of the best designs yet. I for one, would be interested in plans for the frame and tailfeathers. Thank you, Mike Hughes 321-795-0122

Well.. i don't like using the rotor to do any other job than flying the gyro.... and i dint like using lithium polymer batteries ( they are very light and give hight current,, but they can catch fire if not charged properly.)And it all started with an annual on the Bensen. Yes that gentleman, John who made Cloud Dancer had an electrical prerotator that then recharged the battery. Sounded a very interesting concept.
