Grats to Adam for taking home the best single place machine at Mentone this year. I understand your simplicity was the key deciding factor. Once again thanks for bringing home the trophy to Chapter 18.
Thanks! I've never submitted any gyro I've owned for judging before because I always thought they were too rough looking to win. Everyone always comments that my gyro looks so simple and "clean". A few weeks before the convention, an A&P friend of mine stopped by the hangar and gave me a few insights as to spots that could be improved upon, we worked on the machine late into the night and it made a big difference. Sometimes a fresh set of eyes will point out problems or compromises that you as the builder and pilot have gotten used to. It was a great convention and winning best single place was a very good way to end it.
This is the only recent picture I have, it was taken during the egg drop at Mentone this year. I'll take a few more next time I'm at the airport. It's really pretty standard, just a stock, clean, light Gyrobee.
