Default March Autigyro's Lakeland, FL

I am still planning on an Autogyro meet in March if we have enough interest. I plan on a some Electric airplanes also and have a swap meet as well.

WE have enough room for all.

I don't at this time plan on having it an AMA scantioned event so it will not be published in the AMA magizine.

Dates will be March 14- 16 Motels close by or dry Camping at Field.

Any questions or suggestions

Count us in , Jim.

We could possibly drive there each day from Weeki Wachee or stay in a Motel nearby.
Could you suggest a motel as some of us would prefer to stay there.

Oh boy, now that I'm committed, I have to go make some blades.

Bob,
I checked with 3 of the Motels tonight. The best price I got was from the Jameson Inn. I checked Days Inn and Hampton Inn.. Maybe $10 more.

There is a Hooters Cup Race that Weekend so there is a reason to make the prices Higher. The Hooters Cup Race is just around the corner from our Flying field.

Jameson Inn is $109.99 +Tax.. Arrp and AA give a little discount.
Hope this helps.

There should be a few Begi,s there. The Master Begi mman is planning on being there.
I have been working with a guy and he is doing real good flying a PT 25 right now.

See you all there.

Jim, I now have a Flying Blasa head assembly on my Gyro Stick. I also made the rudder steerable along with a steerable tailwheel. Will test fly it in this configuration on Friday, weather permitting. I think the PT25 is one of the nicest flying gyros around. If this new Ninja Delta head works on my old Gyro Stick, I just might order one of the PT25s from them and e power it. Tom

TJ Flyer, saw your post about the Flying Balsa head on a gyrostick. Any photos you can post of this contraption? I am beginning to get ideas...

Come join the fun..
