Thank you couldn't have done it without help from my pops. So I would like to thank my dad for helping me build this (he did most of the skilled work). Without he and my stepmother Connie True Love would have never happened. She's pretty now to make sure she stays that way.
Thanks..I am swinging a 68" prop. I already have made my Joe Lewis clamp for the yard arm just havent installed it yet.
Temp is 160 to 180 right now concern is summertime it going up. I will try different coolant before I move it to the vertical. We are still playing with the jetting.
Well yesterday was the day. I finally flew my True Love. I went out and taxied down the runway three times under the supervision of Bud O'neal. I was able to balance the full length of the runway without touching the tail wheel or the nose wheel. The next time I went out I intended to just fly the runway. I took off a little sideways so I gave it more throttle and she began climbing so I went ahead and flew the pattern. Only once it was good. Today I went out to Wauchula and waited for the fog to burn off. I took off and flew for about 30 minutes. I burned a gallon and a half of fuel. Let me tell you that machine is a rocket. It is very fast. I want to publicly thank my dad for helping with this machine. It is the smoothest gyro I have ever flown. I can't wait to fly her some more. I will try to post pictures when I can.
