Well, in this case I'm looking at a machine that's already been built and I want to be sure it will actually work for its intended purpose (putting myself and Dustin in the air so I can learn to fly).Once again I believe someone has already told you this. When you register a machine as EAB you determine what the weight limits are. You are the manufacturer therefore the FAA inspector or the DAR have to take your word for it. Never register the machine by brand name and model name or number. An example would be my machine was listed as manufacturer: My name. Model: MB 001. Also never call it a kit. That throws it into a very complicated vicious circle similar to what you’re dealing with your physical. Also remember less is more. Don’t volunteer too much info. Answer questions asked if you. Most DAR’s are ignorant of Gyros and will most likely concentrate on things like the amount of threads outside a locknut or where safety wire is placed. They also will enjoy asking you questions to learn. These are things learned over many years and machines my father and I had inspected.
