Hi Robin,
I will try to call you tonight. I suspect your model is going to be too heavy to fly well.
There used to be a graph of rotor diameter to weight on Jim Baxter's site but I think that the site has gone for good. Mickey will probably know the answer.
What is the rotor diameter and the model total weight?

Yes, flew out 10 Dec back on 2 Jan , to work leaving wife and mother in law in NZ , and out again 15 Feb and all going home 3 Mar. Grand daughter born 9 Feb.
Next visit probably Feb 2014.
Was hoping to fly my Durafly vampire and gyrocopter when I was "home alone" but the weather was either horizontal rain, snow, ice, too cold and windy....must be getting old!
Bill
