trying to find a DAR that will not say yes I can do it and as soon as you tell them what is it (Gyrobee) that they will be inspecting.........it is a dead phone or well I am busy right now and don't have time sorry. I have been trying for 6 months with no luck, except 1 that wants 800.00 bucks and I have to carry it to him.
I guess I have to call and ask someone to send one out.... ANY THOUGHTS?

Call your local FSDO. I know the FAA is trying to get away from Airworthiness Inspections on experimentals but it is still a part of their job. It may take a while to get an appointment, but it is still free.

Thanks for the reply.
I contacted the FISDO office in Alt. ga. and talk to a guy there I still have the e-mails, he gave me 2 names and I called both of them.....Both were more than willing until I told them what it was. then well I really not qualified. in that field. I told them well you boss said that you have done some already. Well right now I have to much to do. so I called the boss back got the answer machine left messages with no response to me as of yet.... email either.
Were is the next head post at?

Are the people you called DARs or FAA Airworthiness Inspectors? If they are DARs then it is totally up to their discretion as to whether or not they want to sign there name to airworthiness certificate.
Did you work with a Tech Councilor or a Flight Advisor during the build? They might know more about local FSDO politics and the DAR scene.
Other than that, I would say give EAA member services a call and see if anyone can help out from there.
Hang in there,

This is the responce I recived from the FAA guy. at MIDO I guess I changed the names to not cause to may waves. Mr. Kind is the DAR I have talked to some 250 miles away from me.
and Mr. ////// is the FAA guy I did speak to have 3 time trying to find some one. I did talk to a guy today local only 35 mile away that he told me he could do it for me. Great
DAR 1 & 2 both live up around the altanta, GA area which is a 7 hour drive for me if I used them. Still have to get a price from the new guy today. Notice the date of the e-mail last year.
Mr. Bowen - Please see Mr. ///////'s email. These are two DAR's that have Gyro experience.. - Regards, mr.kind
