Re: What to know when buying a Gyro

Another point to add to the buyers list Get a TCU printout before buying This will confirm the number of engine hours. Only the Magni’s flydat read the TCU for engine hours the rest of the Gyros use a separate hobbs meter. The engine charging the battery activate the hobs meter , the readings will ...

My understanding is it sits in the outbox until the recipient receives / reads it.

Maybe the recipients inbox is full or he does not frequent the forum?

Re: Street legal gyro

Hehe if you turn the prop to an optimal position I don't think it will protrude much further than the horizontal stabilizer. This kit is obviously not a good solution for the everyday commute... but... Maybe the electric motor (and the rest of the kit) is a good solution for safely taxiing/driving f...

Re: Street legal gyro

Street legal gyro

Since its so quiet in here (Is Avcom the official gyro forum now?), and I thought it was pretty interesting, here is a street legal Autogyro Calidus conversion from the Czech Republic. Looks like they added some side mirrors and an electric motor to drive the front wheel (From rotary forum): http://...

Wanted: ! Magni M22 !

Hi, As the title says I am looking for a gyro for slightly longer trips that has some packing space, and good endurance. From my limited experience I take it that means an M22, MT03/MTO-sport and at a stretch a Calidus. The Ela, M16 and M24 did not seem to have any meaningful packing space using eye...

Re: !!!! SAGPA AGM !!!!

I removed my earlier post bemoaning the fact that for me, a hopefully new gyro pilot, there is 0 information available on what SAGPA has done the last year in order for me to decide whether to join SAGPA or not. Even the events calendar has nothing in it. The new AGM video posted on the SAGPA facebo...

That is scary. I would have something stronger than a beer if I found that on my gyro!

Re: Xenon RST new pic 16 August

Looks very nice! Compares well with the newer Xenon panels! I like the way they gave the status lights maximum sun protection.
