on my monoseater I have a mechanical pre-rotator ( with a hard shaft) I build in only one day (copying an other one) , I can pre-spinn up to 240 rrpm and I have never changed the belts after 350 hours flight time ... nothing can beats this to be honest

for my second gyro I decided to go electric ... we will see

Hoping it all goes well JM good luck with that.

Didn’t have the best of luck with the electric prerotator we went for, but it was a prototype and entered into with that in mind.

It did however decide me on a mechanical one for this project. Lets hope we both have success.
