Builder Tip #25 from HomebuiltHELP 
Nothing but Gyroplanes

One of the largest gatherings of gyroplanes in the U.S. occurs in the small town of Wauchula Florida each year, at an event known as Bensen Days. At the beginning of this month, we stopped by to get a glimpse of these fascinating machines. Known for their amazing short field take off and landing, it was hard to say if it was more fun to watch them fly or just study their engines and design on the ground.

You get a little of both in this 5 minute video clip as we strolled the grounds. You will recognize many familiar engines and mechanical components that are shared from your fixed wing project.

HomebuiltHELP is happy to announce the release of their new DVD:  
Fuel System Plumbing
for experimental aircraft
This DVD is brand new as of this weekend!

We have attempted to place the basic instructions and demonstrations for plumbing a homebuilt aircraft fuel system on one DVD. Whether you want to use rubber fuel hose, aluminum rigid tubing, or high tech braided flex hoses - it is all here on our new DVD.

The goal was to target homebuilders that already feel comfortable using rubber fuel line to now "move up" to rigid metal tubing. We show the material, tools, and skills required to start using tubes and fittings needed to replace some of those rubber lines. If you never thought you could run rigid tubing for a fuel line - we are looking for you! Cutting, bending, flaring - it's all there. Plus: how to select the right aluminum tubing.

Of equal importance is the use of the newer stainless steel braided Teflon flex hoses - almost as easy to use as rubber hose, but with greater durability and fire protection. We show how you can make these yourself - or purchase ready to go.

Please visit the detailed information on our new DVD and think about learning something new today!
