I'm not sure if I've ever read anything on this, but I was curious to find out what the max allowable weight would be for flying in a Gyro Glider. I realize the tow vehicle provides ample power for lift, but I also know the heavier the load, the more power is needed to lift the glider. And, I'm guessing the load available also depends on blade length. The last time I went up, it took about 10MPH more for me to get up than those not as "gravity challenged" in our group! (I'm working on that problem too). Any info would be appreciated. Thanks!
