I missed the roll!! but I was watching the many many loops, you fly the Minimum superbly

Thanks yet again to Rich, a good afternoons worth of flying and nattering. Nice to put new faces to names, I counted 29 autogyro's.

That looks as if it was a good 'hovering ' wind, and a loop. Nice to see..........
Happy Landings

What an excellent day! Thanks again Rich for hosting the meet it was great fun.

I took five gyros, I don't know how many flights I had, but it was a lot, and not a single repair required. Amazing !!!

can't wait for the next one.

cheers

Nils,
No you don't!, 1.50 for a litre of fuel, a government run by monkeys and manufacturing being pulled out of the country on a daily basis. Then there is a pension that I will not get until I'm 67 (I can hear all you pensioners sniggering!)
To top it all off there is the weather, apart from that its ok

But all this is forgotten when we have our little get together's once in a while, a good bunch of chaps to be around. Its always a laugh and that is what its all about.
I am absolutely positive model autogyros are getting ever more popular over in the UK and all over the world, its up to us guys to spread the word


Regards

Rich

Thanks Rich for the heads-up, sounds like where ever we call home has it's problems.

I was born in Sweden, grew up in the Bahamas under British rule, much better education in my opinion. Lets start are own country...LOL

Thanks,
Nils

Hey guys,

Thanks for posting the pics. Looks like a great time for all attendees. And talk about a great selection of gyros -- WOW! I hope our upcoming Gyronuts Fun Fly in Muncie turns out as well.

Rich, when I was reading your description about the U.K. I was thinking how it also applies over here in the States. How sad it all is. But as you say, any day spent with fellow Gyronuts is a day to forget about that mess and enjoy this wonderful hobby.

Mike
