This was my first autogyro built in 1996. Designed by Alex Weiss.

Alex and I have flown together in the past and I have been to his home in Buckinghamshire. We even use the same dentist. Alex is a nice chap.

The model would fly, but often would be taken home broken..

The balance was my problem, or as its now called hang-angle; and vibration could be seen in the wheels.

Now I know more, she may get rebuilt again...

I built the Profile Kellet as my first successful flying autogyro, and never looked back.

She is very strong and thatís what you want for a learning autogyro.

I also made all the blades, and only basic parts were purchased.

Here is my build thread...Page 8 shows how to make blades.
