    Wait wait, let me guess i think i know where this is going.......

    Would those plans require any "Welding"???

    Monte, i think its great. I have always wanted to build a homebuilt airplane. I got my start in aviation (i got my A&P at 18). Unfortunately life takes in different directions than we may want. I will be watching, post plenty of pics

    If it were an airplane then Monte could build it with the Diversion.

    Default Hmmmmm.

    It looks like it might be fun. I can see the connection to welding effort also.

    I must say, however, that it looks like the operator (pilot?) would be in a very precarious position in the event of a crash. Those two blades would filet the pilot in the time it would take to stop once it hits the ground.

    I guess I'm saying that it looks extremely dangerous due to the open blades.

    Just about anything related with flying is expensive. The prices I've seen for
    some gyros that are small and simple still bring a big price. Same with ultralites. Of course the motors and props are a big part of the bill. Gyro
    rotors are expensive. Rotors like that I wouldn't attempt to build. Smaller rotors and props can be home built.
    This unit I want to build shouldn't be too expensive. The engine will be the
    biggest expense.
    I need a two stroke 30-35 hp range........strong but lightweight. ANYONE
    HAVE AN IDEA WHERE TO FIND AN ENGINE LIKE THIS? Also what size engine in CC equates to this hp . I'm thinking maybe off a dirt bike or the like. I hate to pay for an entire bike just for the engine. Any leads welcome.

    Yes and No.
    Vertical shaft will be easier.........a 2 stroke can be turned on its side. A 4 stroke would need a right angle drive but will weigh more for its power in most cases. Either way, the rotors have to be driven indirectly through chain or gear reduction. I'm designing my counter rotating gear box now using 4 spider gears from a Dodge 3/4 ton van rear end. As I progress, I'll post pics if
    there's an interest here.
