Gyro Visits Shasta Valley - - What Fun!
Here are some photos of our gyrocopters to check out. The one with the three guys is me, Ed Medlin, on the left, Kevin Richey of Portland, OR in the middle and Hans Peters on the right. Kevinís gyro is also a Sport Copter and it has the checkerboard rudder, Hansí has the red rudder and is a Soma gyro. Hans is pictured flying in Shasta Valley.
Ed Medlin Captures Flight In Shasta Valley, California, USA
At the end of this video, there are photos of the machine behind the camera
and the two machines in the video and their pilots. The pilot of the SOMA
gyrocopter is Hans Peters and the pilot of the Trike is Paul Morton. There is
also a photo of Ed Medlinís Sport Copter Lightning, the ship that carried his
Flip Video camera. He is unable to reach it during flight so it is only filming
straight ahead. He was doing the filming so he is not in the video at all.
They're hoping to put a bracket on Hansí gyro so he can film back someday. Hans,
Paul and Ed are local pilots and we try to fly together when time allows. Hans
shares a hanger with Ed and usually get together on Sundays. Hansí family owns
most of the ranch land around the airport and those are his cows we are flying
We hope that you all enjoy these videos as much as we have enjoyed putting them together. (More detailed information is in the chapters area.)
