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

Default 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... )

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!

Default 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.

http://www.amazon.com/Gyroplane-Flig.../dp/1888723009

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!!!!! PEACE BROTHERS
