Hi,
Seems to me that this is where gyros are headed. All it really requires is a variable pitch rotor system, and (optimally) a variable pich prop. Really don't know what the mystery is...

Regards,
Duncan

Mike,
Those videos don't show the new variable pitch rotors in use like the ones posted above.

G'Day Andr'e,

To answer your first question...Yes, very close.
The Golden Butterfly, should be doing what the Monarch with MLS Metro Launch System, does. Butterfly website, shows similar short takeoff for fully dressed Monarch. Different approaches to achieve the same results.

So the Golden Butterfly Trainer Two Place is a Tandem and yes soon to be very short takeoff.

I have been advised that the Butterfly site will be upgraded with 10 new vids, showing the new All Terrain, 'AT' GFLG Suspension and push button lock gear up device, all plug and play stuff. Give Larry a call Andr'e and talk 'shop'.

Jay Carters site is wonderfull and very informative.

Merry Christmas,

Mitch.
