How do you pronounce "Mi" as in Mil Mi-8 by Justin
I presume it's not "em eye", as the "i" is often in lower case. So what it is? Me, mih, my? Thanks, Justin.

Death? by Ol Shy & Bashful
Looking at 14 days without activity on this forum. Will that qualify as dead? I think so. I'll be spending my time over on Just Helicopters from now on and delete this forum from my favorites. Rocky

Anyone here flying a Little Wing gyro? by [email protected]
Greetings, I just purchased plans for the Little Wing, and am trying to get an idea of how many of them are flying. I really like the idea of a tractor configuration, but there just aren't many of them around. Thanks, Rusty

balancing act by Stuart & Kathryn Fields
Here's one for the pros: I was balancing my tail rotor and had it down to 0.27 ips and still had just a touch too much weight where I had added it. So still needing to safety wire a bolt that is located in the center of the tail rotor output shaft, I chose to safety it to a hole 180 degrees from...

Can you get liability insurance for the Helicycle? If so, how much would it run in ballpark figures. What do you do with your Helicycle. Do you fly over 100 miles in it or do you just fly within a short area. I am interested in the helicopter, but one seat and limited range make me think twice. ...
