Looking at a butterfly Monarch gyro and was wounding how hard is it to find parts now for them.
Is anyone building replacement parts or are owners without available replacement parts.

Most of the parts on a Monarch are off the shelf from suppliers that are still in business.

Things like propellers, engines, rotor blades, tires, bearings switches, and instruments are easy to find.

An occasional part may need to be fabricated by a craftsman with tools.

Thanks Vance for the reply looking at one for sale but concern about air frame parts availability.

In my opinion Robert; most fabrication shops could copy and build the complete frame and suspension from scratch without prints.
As I recall the shocks are some off the shelf item.
