Toward the end of the video when we see it taxiing on the runway form behind while zoomed-in from a distance, gives a truer view of the HS incidence. I see more of the top surface than I would expect to if the pitch were zero, giving me the impression that it is mounted slightly positive. This does seem to run counter to what I've learned here.I should have been clearer about "3-point position." The H-stab is certainly at lifting AOA when she's on the tailwheel, but also when she's on the 3 mains. The former is to be expected and is not an issue. The latter is less good, if the cruising stance is roughly the same as the "3 mains" stance.
I like the wheels tho, taggart was onto something with the bicycle bush wheels.
those wheels tho! its like taggart new what a bush copter should be! The original had bicycle wheels.
The only gyro from across the Atlantic where the designer appears to have some technical background and to be more than just a stylist copying other EuroTubs is the gyro flown by Joe Peres, the Aviomania GS2.My impression is that Mr Beaty does not much like any gyros currently being produced.
L'unico giroscopio dall'altra parte dell'Atlantico in cui il designer sembra avere un background tecnico ed essere più di un semplice stilista che copia altri EuroTub è il giroscopio pilotato da Joe Peres, l'Aviomania GS2.
Lo stile EuroTub, basso e vivace come un'auto sportiva italiana, è stato creato da Vittrio Magni, un meccanico aeronautico che, secondo le sue stesse dichiarazioni, ha imparato a progettare giroscopi grazie alla costruzione di una Bensen dai piani.
I recall Chuck B and others explaining the stress issues with twin rotors in this configuration. I'd be interested to see how they dealt with the phase issue. I see, however, from the attached side-view photo that the rotors appear to be perhaps 25-30 degrees out of phase instead of 90. I wonder if that was part of the solution. There's a pic of the head (I believe) in a testing apparatus but hard to discern what's going on.Now, the four-seater's configuration is really concerning. Any possible nits or picks over little details of the Nano are trivial by comparison to the apparent use of two semi-rigid rotors on a single mast and far too much area ahead of the CG for the tail to handle.
A whole lot of 'splainin' to do, Lucy.
