Since so many people here like to argue, here's something I'm passionate about. I'm the grumpy old man who yells at kids to "get off my lawn!" (not really). But I do have my opinions. I started flying full scale when I was 9 (dads plane). I now fly RC 100cc+ airplanes because of how inherently true flying they are. I use a computer radio with expo and mixes to lighten my load as a pilot. I have flown everything since I was 11 years old (29 years ago) from glo-turds, pylon racing, to thermal duration ships, slope soaring, slope combat, 200mph dynamic soaring, gasser warbirds, and from foamies up to 120cc 3D monsters and 150cc Waco biplanes. I have flown several gyro systems, and I do not feel like I need them. Wanna hate me because I don't agree with you, that's ok too. You wouldn't be the first, or the last. If someone wanted to sponsor me with a gyro I would try it and be honest about my experience. But I just don't want one. Just like I didn't want steroids when I played football, or took Ritalin when I was in college, or popped a blue pill before getting with my woman, or lied and got women drunk and took advantage of them, or used pictures of other people's work to sell my own work. I've known lots of guys that did all of the above. I also have no respect for them. If they are not allowed in competition why would I want one if I compete? If the rules ever change, I would try one just to keep the playing field level. But until then.... I apologize for offending the sensitive, but I can't seem to keep my big mouth shut.
