LittleWing built in 2007, N503AG, all logs, airworthiness certificate

Rotax 582, 25 ft. DragonWings

60 hours on airframe, approx 150 hours on engine, electric start, runs well

$19,999

I have owned it a little over a year and have flown it 25 or so hours......there are no issues.

I am looking to buy a new 2-place..MTO or something similar.....so I do not need 3 gyroplanes.

Hey Kelly, I live in western Oregon, been through Adel many times on my way to Salt Lake, I always stop at the Adel store to stretch my legs, I might be the only forum member who has ever been to Adel, beautiful country, seen a lot of wild life, wild horses, antelope, etc. driving through your area. Any way, good luck with your Quest.

Yes, I still have it.....have not advertised it is several months......was waiting for warm weather.

I flew it a few days ago....we have had record high temps in south Louisiana for the last couple of weeks.

What is your weight and height?? Builder was not a large person so it's tight if you are big.

It has a seat tank as well as a header tank so to fit a larger person the seat tank could be removed and that would give 5-6 more inches of legroom.

I'm about 5'8" and 155lbs. How hard is it to learn to taxi and land with the tail wheel? Also how much are you currently asking. I would need to look into shipping costs I live in SE Oregon.
Thanks

Thanks, we really like it here. Are you the same j bird who rebuilds engine and reduction drives?

Kelly I'm not the J bird that rebuilds engine and reduction drives, but I did rebuild the engine on my Dominator (Corvair).

Hi Kelly
Your height and weight sound great for it.

There is a page on PRA's sight devoted to Tail Draggers, in particular the Little Wing as part of it came from a reply email to me from the Little Wing designer Ron Heron on how to fly and land a little wing.

Here is the link: http://pra.org/default.aspx?p=How2FlyTractor&i=83

There is also a thread on here where I posted it and others added to it here and on Sky Wolverines site to create this final document.

I'm hoping the shipping company will contact me today. In the mean time I have a few questions. Does it have toe brakes? How many hours on the 582? How many hours on the airframe? Does it have oil injection? Can you lock the tailwheel? How does it handle rough field takeoffs? How many gal of fuel does it hold? What's a good cruise speed? What are takeoff and landing speeds? My elevation here is 4300 ft so I'm guessing I will need longer rotorblades, I'm considering SC blades from the posts I have read, have you had any experience with them? What would you recommend?
Sorry to bombard you with questions but I have previously purchased 4 other gyroplanes and have ran into some serious issues with 3 of the 4.

Mike C.: Mike Morgan rarely comes to this forum anymore. Clicking on his name reveals he last visited on 02-18 of this year, 2 days after he posted another price reduction.

You'd get the best result by calling or texting him @ the phone # he supplied, in post #17, just b/4 your inquiry.
