Anyone still flying gyrocopters? by [email protected]
I flew helos in the Marines, and in the '60s put together a Benson kit. It logged about 220 hours with zero problems, including a highly idiotic trip from the CA coast to Catalina. In 1972, however, my wife-to-be insisted it go before the wedding bells. Are any of these still around? Henry

welding rod by Del Rawlins
A while back I posted that after trying E70S-6 filler rod for TIG welding 4130 steel, that I preferred using S-2 although the S-6 worked fine.

Ack! My ACK! by MikeremlaP
Am wondering if there's a design flaw in the ACK E-01 ELT or just an anomaly? Our unit went off by itself today because the battery in the remote panel mount indicator died, triggering the ELT, and I'd like to know if anyone else has had this happen? If a dying battery in the remote ***always***...

Ack! My ACK! by Fastglasair
"Well done, good and faithful servant" Mike, you handled this newsgroup "situation" admirablely in my opinion (no doubt not worth much here). This web board is in desperate need of a modicum of civility (a large dose is probably to much to ask). It goes way beyond normal or reasonable bantering...

Is the R44 safer than the R22? by Capt. Doug
Wooduuuward wrote in message I read that the R44 sales have 'taken off'. From frequently browsing the FAA crash reports, the R22 is listed almost every other week there. The R44 is larger, faster and flys higher. Is it safer? i.e.: in the last month: there are four incidents listed for...

Is there a trick for installing a Tinnerman spring nut? by Michael Horowitz
Folks - I know that if I get someone to sit inside and hold the flat Tinnerman fastener, I can screw in a machine screw from beneath the a/c. This is not the type of fasterner that clips on to the edge of the metal. For one person trying to either install or remove a screw from the afore mentioned...

I found out yesterday that Port Orchard airport (4WA9) will temporarily close tomorrow, July 14, for two weeks or so. The owners are ripping out the existing blacktop and going to repave. The taxiway was taken out Friday. It's the "or so" that bothers me. I can only hope the project is...

Arlington trip by C J Campbell
Three of my students and I took the 206 to Arlington yesterday. We had to go IFR since the ceiling at Tacoma Narrows was only 400 feet. However, we broke out on top at 1400 and sailed under clear blue skies to Arlington, which was clear below 11,000. I was concerned about getting in there IFR and...
