Hello Joe,
I've typed several notes now and none will go through... saying keep it under 420 words (where there's only 100.. oy)
What's your thoughts on the Duo? Looking to get one.

Not sure what a duo is. If it's an aviomania gs2, which I fly a prototype of I am very pleased with my machine. Mine however is very different from the production model. My frame is much heavier. I fly 130 horse, I believe his standard is the 100hp rotax. My rotor, rotorhead, and prerotater are all by rotorflight dynamics. Still his product appears to be very well designed.
Have you figured out what engine you are putting on your Sportcopter yet?

I originally was all in for the 915iS but after hearing the reports that it isn't quite as robust as they thought it would be I am considering the Edge Performance EP912STI, the AM15T, and the Viking 195. My biggest concern is the extra weight of the Viking. It's almost 300 pounds. Just wanted to see if you'd decided yet?

Thanks for the update. I’m just concerned about some of the negative things I’ve heard on the forums. I love the idea of 195hp though
I've been stalking the Zenith Aircraft builder forum. They are loving their Viking engines, but normally the 135 HP version. If I weren't buying a Sport Copter M2, I'd be buying a CH 750.
Keep me posted! I appreciate the info!
Very tough decision

Who doesn’t want more horsepower!

I’ve got a couple hundred hours in 915 Cavalons and with two people at sea level it’s not eye watering performance by any means

And that thing is 100 pounds lighter than the 1320 Jim is listing the M2 at.
Dear All Gyro brothers out there, wondering if there is any CFI to offer me training and stick time here in East Africa ? i am currently in Uganda
I had hoped to make it for spring, but not going to happen. Life gets in the way again. Really disappointed too, as I was going to bring some 120 proof bourbon for you knock back and also some cigars. Will plan on the fall. This is Stan Dare from Saint Louis. Let me know the fall dates please.
I will be in Kerrville july 25 2022 , if all go's right ,,, and the price of gas don't get to much higher !! phone #256 608 0806
Sounds good, my number is 830 285-2552.

Chris, I will try to reach you on FB to see more of your Dominator control upgrades. Thanks, Phil
I am looking for advice: I got rotax 447, I got the plans for parson tandem, I need to find rotorhead, and blades. Can I get advice from someone?
Well….. a 447 won’t do the job if you’re planning on putting it on a Parsons’s trainer. Not enough HP.
RotorHead and rotors……. Gyro Technic or Sportcopter can fix you right up.
stefan made it
Thanks. Well I got 447 rebuild only 4 hours on it and block 447 I guess I am going to put it on sale
Been in gyros over 20 yrs now. I fly a Dominator. My first gyro was a Dennis Fetters low rider built at the factory. There are a number of issues with his kits that need to be addressed. Red Smith bought Air Command and did improvements to the machine such as a centerline thrust mod which makes for a safer gyro.
Dennis Fetters is not his real name. He does not like guys bad mouthing his designs on the forum. He used substandard parts and there are a number of design flaws that need to be addressed that will make for a safer machine. Let me know and i'll spell out all the things to look for when considering an Air Command.
