I went to the airport fairly early, and went out in the gyroplane with Ken again. He'd played with the brakes, but they need new O rings to stop them dragging for good. We did an hour of full stop circuits, so I could practice the pre-rotation thing as I pull on to the runway. I dropped Ken off, he filled in my log book, and then I took the gyro out by myself. We'd discussed it, and Ken suggested taking off and leaving the circuit, so I could space everything out, I flew over to the house and back, and was up for 35 minutes. Nothing was too crazy, but the brakes are dragging badly again, so I think I want to get that in hand before I fly again, as Ken's pointed out that one of the tyres is flat spotted where it couldn't spin up fast enough. We went to lunch, then I went home for a rest.
