Hello Greg

I see you enjoy bashing the factory. Perhaps just make sure of your facts before you do.
See below picture of the way they are packed for transportation and see if you can spot the error in your allegations.

Greg

I don't know why you refer to me about SAGPA ra ra. I have nothing to do with SAGPA, apart from being a member, why don't you bring it up at "your" next ra ra with your friend that also advices you, that assembled this particular gyro.
Sorry, I don't understand your comment, "..cos julle owens is mos vas!", must be above me.

The rest of your silly comments is not even worth responding to as I never said anything about being an OEM or Aeronautical Engineer or have a website or have anything to do with the SAGPA website, so I don't even know why you mention that.

I see you are quickly gaining the same popularity on here as on AVCOM, that really help the sport of gyro flying.

Anyhow, thought I could still suggest some upgrades to you, obviously not anymore, all the best, I am zone outbound.

1) Greg's not bashing the factory or the brand - he bashing bad workmanship - local or overseas! this whole xenon upgrade of ours was purely meant to be cosmetic, but as we go along we are finding things that are a tad worrying - so we will correct them purely for our peace of mind and our SAFETY! we will continue to mention these issues we encounter to our fellow (gyro) pilots - cause poor workmanship is not "brand specific" - so that they can go and check their own aircraft for their own safety and the sport as a whole.

2) I fly that xenon with Greg - it's my life up at 1500ft, up to now I'm disappointed at the poor level of workmanship I've seen first hand, whether THIS xenon is local or overseas assembled is irrelevant to the discussion! the person tasked with the job of assembling the aircraft must have assembling procedures in place to assure that ALL bolts are torqued to the factory settings and are clearly ticked off the procedure list and torqued sealed, so that he does not "miss one" as is clearly the case here.

I hope everyone watching this thread will learn from it in the interest of SAFETY and take nothing for granted! even if it's "factory assembled" CHECK IT!


now it's my turn to go dop (^^)

quote from Greg's main Xenon thread:
I am not sure which month end you are referring to for completion, but myself, a reputable AMO, a AP and Aeronautical Engineer and after many meetings and correspondence gave up on CAA's mod approval requirements, delays, short staffness, etc, etc after about nine months.
Hope you have better luck with that.
