Melted Autogyros at the RC Hotel

Flew back to Scotland on Tuesday after two months of training and model building only to be called back on Thursday to help rebuild after a fire in the model hanger, all my Autogyros were damaged and at least half the fleet was destroyed
Spiros and his team are fighting back and the place will be better after the recovery
I have managed to get a few models back in flying condition but no Autogyros yet

G'day Joe
I know what its like when modes are lost in a fire. I left a battery on charge, and I can still remember the smell when my workshop burnt down 20 years ago and I lost ever thing. Fortunately for me a had a good insurance company that paid up with in 14 days.
Happy Landings
Chris..
