Morne,

That has to be one of the best finished and flying scratch built autogyros in recent years... Simply stunning, well done

very nice build and the red nose helps a lot when flying, I think.

I've just run through your complete build again...to let it all sink in. Again I must compliment you on your standard of construction......excellent...
I notice that your motor is set off to the left, using a pusher prop. Was this the way that your Gyro One was set up ? and please let me know the angle on your head assembly. Would it be around + 9 / 10 deg ?

Thanks Britz, if you're using a pusher prop the offset is to the left, about 10mm, that was just correct, for I didn't need any rudder trim. My head angle was 7 degrees on the maiden, but it kept on climbing, so I trimmed it down to 6, at wich it flown straight and level on full throttle as well as on idle.

I didn't like to mention his size he does look just a little bit on the junior size .
I presume that you have used a "action man "size pilot that is 300 mm in length but that does not quite fit in with the scale of your model. Looks like you will have to turn you talents to "doll making " to get a pilot the right size. Should be fun.
