Vance had already mentioned that about the SCII with:I never said the pilot is XYZ - I did note that his public FAA details shows he's built two flying machines over the years,the gyro and a Rotorway.
and that was sufficient. You, however, had to add more (which included the owner's name).He has the repairman experimental aircraft builder certificate for the Sport Copter II.
Such was not necessary. Your motivation for posting such is curious to me, and others here.
If anybody wants to look up an N-# or a pilot's ratings, they can.
Here's another way to put it;Nine aircraft in approx nine years.
Sport Copter's market share of 235hp IO-360 cabin class gyros: 100%
While I've never flapped my rotors, I have twice dropped the NW after my landing roll while it wasn't centered.
It was memorable, but I didn't tip it over.
Yes, these kinds of mistakes are something to watch out for, especially in one's first 100 hours of gyro time.
I, too, hope that this SCII owner repairs his ship and continues to fly it.
