    Chuck Burgoon Scott, I too would like to hear about FI feedback for them. I've convereted my two 582's to Nippondenso ignition and have all the upgrades you can put on them. I've looked at numerous carb options, but like FI.

    If only modern camera technology could capture smells too. The first thing I thought of is how it smells to fly in low mist.

    Amen... I guess we are both getting older and lazier ;-) I can remember carrying my folded up hang glider on my shoulder and harness up long steep mountain trails to fly.

    Chuck Burgoon 2014 Anahuac Fly-In...Thanks to all the hard work of the organizers and the large group of attendees...it was a great success. Lots of gyros, 2 helicopters, two airplanes, one PPC, no trikes....and a lot of folks without aircraft. The flying conditions were perfect, food was great, and to friendship memorable. Reklaw is next week...hope at least one trike shows up.

      Chuck Burgoon Of the 25 or so gyros about a third flew in and the rest were trailered or based there.

    I live on an airpark and am strictly a "hanger trike" guy nowadays. I sold my "road trike" and loath setting them up and breaking them down. I plan to never take one on the road again.

    I always tell guys to get a demo in mid-day windy conditions in both…preferably back-to-back same day. But admittedly even that doesn’t tell the whole story because there is a lot of variability between one gyro to another, and even more ...

    Here's one comment posted: I had purchased the iVue 720P Video glasses originally and was decently happy with it. The video quality was okay although it got a little rough in low light. In good lighting it was definitely decent most of the time, ...

    Here's the 1080 set I bought. Good comments on Amazon. http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00GSX8O92/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    I bought them through Amazon for less $$. They had 40 or so good reviews on them. I read the 1080 is a must. The 720 did not do near as well.

    Chuck Burgoon Apparently it was built 1976-77, right around the time of the resurgence of the trike concept (which began in the early 1960’s but was dormant for over a decade).

    Chuck Burgoon I have not seen this aircraft before. It’s basically a rigid wing (with tail & elevator) trike and had trike like control movements, but moved control cables. The Fledge was similar but not the same…it had a control bar for pitch. Starts at 00:03:18 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LOjs9kxdRYY

    "Chuck Burgoon" commented on Abid Farooqui's Blog "Changing wings on your carriage".
    If you swap cables, make a note of both dimensions (static geometric dihedral/anhedral) to see how much you pulled the wings down when you used the longer cables. There are several ways to do this. One simple way is a string line from tip-to-tip ...

    Hi Chuck,

    Experimental Amateur built gyros do not carry separate ratings for land or sea.
    I transitioned from a triking background and needed 2 CFI's, one to recommend me and the other to give me the check ride.
    I did both on land and then transitioned myself into water. Had one prior flight off water in a similar gyro couple of months prior but my Gyro I setup a little differently. Let me know whenever you are in the Pensacola area and I will show u my bird. Awesome.. Love your yellow heli in the pictures.. What gyro do u fly? What trike do u fly?
