    Get an enclosed AR-1 gyroplane for the winter with cabin heat. Bonus is no turbulence effect

    This trike is still available. Make a reasonable offer. Customer gyroplane is ready and he needs the hanger space

    I would also suggest that strutted wings are not just about less drag r better speed range. They are also about being able to fit in most T-hanger across the US. Some king post wings are tricky to get in hangers and some really can't.

    Riz: I question iif a quarter inch thick cable in good tension has more drag than a strut of airfoil shape with a frontal width of 1 inch. If a spherical cable was 1 inch and airfoil shaped strut's frontal area was also 1 inch then yes for sure the ...

    Jeez Larry you teach them young! Not even off momma's tit and you can get them to fly @ 5 days old! I guess no walk around the aircraft just a crawl around. :)

    Larry is right but Greg would have immediately killed the engine. We talked about that a minute before the video. I have never yet had engine start at full or partial throttle but I am meticulous in pre-flight about making sure carbs show idle

    Jim: What else would it be. It couldn't be clearer at least to me. Visual reference to the ground means, if you can see it anywhere

    Ya I'll pass on the WOT startup thanks but I have started with partial throttle and that's enough! Always have the bar under my arms on start. Guess you'll be adding "rear throttle" to your preflight check? I only mention the secured control bar ...

    Jim, very true, but Greg who is an expert gyro pilot wouldn't know what to do with the bar anyway ;-) Although I am confident he would shut it down in an instant if the engine wasn't idling. It was yesterday I waited in the back seat for my 5 day ...

    Nice machine. 0.52 Bad idea to start any trike with the control bar tied off. Just saying.

    Joe H: There is no lockout in any trike that I have seen that is not "easily corrected". You just need to know what to do. They are all correctable but if you continue to push the bar out because you are facing down then there are plenty of ...

    Roger A few of the FAA guys have trike ratings and in fatal accident investigations they almost always involve some subject matter expert both from the engine side as well as category side along with NTSB labs. I would not belittle their ...

    Guys: Lockout (if you want to keep using that tow HG term which isn't technically describe what is happening imo) can happen in any trike or wing unless you are in a rotary wing in positive Gs. Light, heavy, medium, slow, fast, big small. End of ...

    Hey Abid...Still flying. We've had some good weather here too. I'd like to come down to SnF next year. Maybe I could sneak a couple flights in.

    Hey Abid. I am new to trikes. Learning more about trikes every day. Any suggestions how should I get started. I did research on Revo trikes. Congrats on making the world's best trike. Way to go.
    Any help / suggestion will be appreciated. I dont have have a license yet.

    More than a re-fresher its about making sure you assembled the wing back up properly etc. Best of luck.
    The set of cables were given to you so you can change them as their age requires changing them not because they would be different.

    Hi Abid,

    I tend to agree now with your message as I looked in my manual (mine was the first manual as the trike is the first XT ever built 001) and the numbers don't add up to what they state.
    They state at 54 kts with trim wound off from 1000ft they have a descent rate of 770fpm also they state that it will glide 4.8 kms (2.5mn) from 1000ft and this is not possible unless of course your doing 110kts in glide.
    Their manual is up the creek.
    One thing I did find in the manual in section 3 of emergency procedures is they say the best glide is 50kts which should give the trike a better glide ratio than 6.1.
    So my appologies go to you, your were correct and Airbornes manual is a crock of Sh@t.
    Cheers
    Alf

    Could even be 11.1 from my memory bank.

    Abid,

    I think you will find the Airborne ST3 wing has about 10.1 glide ratio unless of course we sell USA our reject wings.
