    Butterfly Gyroplane Tiggy-B

    I'm going to offer Jim's Tiggy-B 310+ HP Subaru powered Turbo-Golden Butterfly for sale ...as a near-finished project .....For ONE Year!!

    Then I will sell it parted out ... if there are no takers for it whole!

    By this time next year Dec 2018 I hope to have a large hangar shed on the farm to house all my gyro's ... then I will have the workshop space & be close by daily to work on the parting out efforts!
    We got so close to the finish line on this convoluted project ... with all the hopes, dashed dreams, ups, downs, drama, lawsuit, death of the sole proprietor of Butterfly LLC gyros and the closing of the business ... means that all the Butterfly gyros are orphans without source support!

    We had got the fuel line/fuel supply sorted out, the big engine professionally tuned by the Subaru expert from metro motors in Utah , the wiring professionally cleaned up ... the last step was to strip the ridiculous huge/heavy complex HS electric pre rotator system off the top and go with a Sportcopter 2 head,(to go with the 30' 9in cord rotors from SC) + trim system & basic wunderlich type PR.

    new the kits were marketed at about $76K .... Jim had about $49K & lots of time( & grief) invested in this machine with many upgrades plus the AG spray accessories ...all still available to install.

    I think $29K is a reasonable point-price to offer this ...as is/where is! ....close to component part out value! A custom trailer is available for $1,000!

    A lot of extras go with the package ... Xcom radio, helmets etc.

    I will try to post the video from my FB page ..of it flying prior to Oshkosh 2011 & the pic from hops in FL.

    (not sure if the FB video will work ...as the original was removed from the web ... hoping my saved copy will come through ... I can get it to play on my own FB!)
