Regarding helicopter downwash, assume they will all kill you (cause a tumble or negative G structural damage, etc.). But just FYI, the amount of downwash varies considerably based on the type of helicopter. For example, they don’t like to use ...2 years ago

×Chuck Burgoon Scott, My Mosquito lives part time in my enclosed trailer (during “fly-in” season like right now). It’s very happy. Some gyro guys who have a tall trailer like mine (tall enough for the trike to sit in it upright), regret having a tall trailer due to extra gas to tow it. What some guys do, and some guys who have tall trailers want to do, it to have either a raised center half length, or a raised center in just the small area to raise the mast. Since I don’t have suspension, it’s easy to have everything move in perfect unison. When you have suspension, like on a trike or gyro, it crucial to have the wing/rotor bounce in perfect unison with the undercarriage. This is difficult and problematic, but can be done. In my case, I can use the roof rafters to support my tail boom and rotors. This would not be feasible for a trike or gyro…unless you jack up the trike on some hard points to prevent the trike’s suspension (and tires) from bouncing out of unison with the wing. Then of course, the only suspension is the trailer’s suspension to absorb all shocks. But the wing and trike could them move in perfect unison, albeit with trailer suspension only. Otherwise you need to have wing “transport-only” struts/support booms attached to the trike to allow the wing and trike to bounce in unison, completely independently from the trailer. Many guys use these transport strut method with success. Thankfully I don’t need to do this.2 years ago

On my Gyke (gyro/trike) project it became apparent from the beginning that, in general, gyros make bad trikes and trikes make bad gyros. There are exceptions, like the MTO style, which readily lend themselves to a trike application. The MTO is ...2 years ago

by Victor Agadzi 3 years agoHi 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?
