Hi Brent, Wayne McCall here, I know you are busy but I am just checking, I bought some raffle tickets back on May 30 but have not seen an email from you with the tickets. Please let me know that they are still to be issued. I am a PRA member also.
Todd, the new software and setup looks really nice and seems to work well, including the "new posts" function, which didn't seem to work at all before. I wish you the best in the unenviable job of keeping things civil. One day I may be able to help moderate, if that's a need. - Paul
I am a survivor of the self taught generation - building and flying a Bensen back in the late 1980s at El Mirage. My little craft was first VW powered and then MAC 72 powered. I had a blast. I have been flying fixed wing before that and ever since. Now I am retiring and looking to change my...
The Xenon mast seems a bit fragile to me, so please inspect carefully.
Hi Dave. I was reading your post when you were making your Yamaha mount. Do you still have the cad files. Or could I get more pictures. I'm trying to build a dominator with a yg4. I'm concerned about vibration. Any experience you could share would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.
Thank you for your efforts Todd, I love this place.
I tried to send you a private message and it says I am full up. I have not been successful at deleting them. [email protected] is a good way to communicate with me.
Thank you, Vance
just looked at the airgyro AG915. Very impressive. Copied the Xenon and improved the things that needed improving. If it flies well and has a nice stick feel I would think it one of the best options available. I really prefer a SxS.
My Xenon is turbocharged and I just put the larger pistons in it bumping it from 120 to about 140 Hp. Only 1 flight since the upgrade so no report yet. I think the 915is is the way to go today, or some guys in Europe are doing the crank weld and larger pistons on a 915is which would be about the best you could do. My airport is at 7,500 in Colorado.
The Magni and Autogyro models fly similarly which is to say very stable, but it takes tons of force to hold and move the stick. I find them exhausting to fly. The Xenon is like flying a helicopter, I mostly just think about a turn and apply a bit of pressure. Straight and level it’s just my thumb and forefinger on the stick.
I flew an ELA in Europe and liked it reasonably well.
If I were buying today I definitely would try the AR1- Abid who owns the company is the most knowledgeable guy in the gyro biz. I.ve not flown one myself, but think highly of him. Unlike so many in the gyro world, he came from real aviation.
If you are interested in a Xenon, get the Trendak version. A bunch of politics there. Call me at 719-896-1298 if you have questions
