You are flying what I worked in two months! No worries with engine corrosion. Hope to get up in the NE soon.

I see why they call it Greenville!! I haven't been to Weds morning Sebring breakfast for a few months. Been traveling. Planning on going tomorrow if weather cooperates. See you soon. Gary

RV10
 
Turbo, I knew I've see that airplane somewhere! I watched this MANY times drooling over it. Music is cool too! Check it out...

(BTW who else thinks it's funny Turbo has NO USE for a shift key yet he can fly anything made... :p)

RV-10 from Sedona AZ. see, from original post. i can get shifty once and a while.
mark mentioned a video but i never saw it. i am impressed by that RV! now he needs to learn to fly a fixed wing.
thanks for all the input you guys gave him on a post titled C-182 vs RV-10. i am glad he went this route.
patiently waiting for the leaves to start turning color.

this saturday 1P1 plymouth NH, chilly @ noon. heli rv, heli rv, hmm. RV!:)

Gyro
 
What kind of Gyro did you get Turbo? We are looking at the Sparrow Hawk. Like the side by side seating. Suggestions?

bob, i was patient, spent 2 years lookn and hanging out with many gyro nuts. learning and almost buying a couple different gyros. this modified mad max design came to me from a rv buddy who gave me a deal of a life time. he wanted it to go to someone 'special'. i was the one, and it has been a blast.

this is the book to get. all you need to know. i used it to learn to fly my 'new' machine. spent hours on the ground, blade management, before i ever took off, just like the book says.
good luck in your new adventure. get in touch if you feel you need any advice. hope to move up to a two place.

the RV is still hard to beat!!!!! :cool: PEACE BROTHERS
