Autogyros over spring hill...
Went over to spring hill today and saw lots of gyros. Musta been 20 on the field, as many as 3 in the air at one time that I saw. Somebody probably has pictures somewhere but it ain't me cause I was flying.
Found out that GT17 does very nice loops with no fanfare whatsoever. Probably did 8 or 10 before it was over with. Got RL's (aka inspector gadget) BEGi sorted out. Had a receiver glitch. Replaced the receiver and flew it all over the place. Got RL mostly checked out on BEGi including a landing.
Saw quite a few dual rotor rigs, quite a few PT25's. and me holding up my end with G3PO, BEGi and GT17. Bill F. got the tech award for his differential dual rotor rig. A couple of really magnificent crashes, but most aircraft survived the day just fine. I gave away dual time on GT17, letting pilots fly right stick. Phil took a turn all by himself and made a nice landing. Shelley from lakeland was pulling a streamer all day (must help with the orientation somehow ) and should get the award for most flights flown on a single aircraft.
Nice blue skies, with 50% cloud cover, wind down the runway for most of the day, essentially unlimited flat area to fly over, 82°, one of those really miserable florida spring days.
Look for pics here somewhere or at that other site....

Thanks for the assist today. I will attempt to get in some flight time on my BEGi now that I have more confidence--thanks to your help today.
It was a beautiful day and I sure enjoyed seeing all the different gyros. I don't have any photos to post either, as I was having too much fun flying my gyros and canards. Had I known they were going to open the field up to any aircraft after lunch, I would have tried to squeeze a few more planes in the car
I look forward to seeing you again at SEFF.
Thanks again C-YA RL

Good to know about the loops. I might have to try one soon. I just don't want to loose the model, as it flies so well. Glad you guys had a good time.
