RE: PT 25 help

RE: 2009 Summer Gyro meet

Hello Jim, Gary, and Mike,

Seems like Muncie would be a better place for us because we could be sure of the conditions we have all ready used in the past.

RE: Would this work?

Hello Jim and Mike,

RE: Would this work?

Hello Mike,

A three bladed rotor with rudder and elevator might possibly work but not a two bladed rotor. You will possibly need a small wing as well.

RE: PT-25 Help

Roger,

Sounds like a good idea to lengthen the pitch control push rod, I'm sure it will help. You should check to see if your pitch pushrod is flexing with radio turned on and a fresh battery....

RE: PT-25 Help

Your PT25 is most likely tail heavy since the fuselage sides are made from 3/16 balsa. Mine did the same thing. Try adding some lead to the nose and or adjust the push rod to give...

RE: Prerotator devices

hello Phil,
