Once I finish building my gyroplane I am going to need a trailer – to move it by road – as I begin transition training from a two-seat machine to the single-seat Genesis. My initial training on it will involve a lot of ground work, getting the feel for the new gyro. This ground training will take place in Kingsland, TX under the supervision of a friend, Eric. Once this is complete, I will have to move the gyro again for formal flight instruction with my CFI.
I have included three aluminum ramps for the gyro’s wheels, but I have not attached them yet as I may not need a ramp for the nose wheel.
I have added an A-frame, with block and tackle, so that I can easily remove and attach the rotor blades. Rotor blades have to be removed for transport and, with the rotor head at a height of about 8.5 feet, some sort of lifting device is needed.
I am currently using two 40-lb bags of salt to simulate the weight of the blades, which have not yet arrived.
I added a small 12volt winch, with a wireless remote controller, that I can use to help when I have to move the Gyro up/down the ramp.
