One of the big advantages the RAF has over most other gyros is to keep for a longtime the model as it is. That way old machines keep their value, a bit like the good Citi Golf. The manufacturers who keep on changing their models do it at the detriment of older ones, therefore are saying please don't buy my machine because it does not keep its value as I will come up next year with again a new model.

Great RAF pic.

That's one way to cut the grass.
Hopefully there was some Vanish available to clean the seat.

Well it seems RHE has had a landing issue some years ago....IIRC? Around 5 years ago ? Could it be the same pilot ?

It rolled over on landing ......5/9/ 2013 SACAA report.... :|
