Help!
Cierva C-30 plan.. anyone?

Guys,

I came accross this photo of a small freeflight rubber power model of the Cierva C-30. I'm informed it was built from a vintage plan drawn by Henry Struck, but i'm not certain of that.

Can anyone point me at the source of the plan? Or better still does anyone have a copy?

thanks
Steve

Steve,
Not sure if this is the one but it is simular? for a cox 049...not rubber powered but could easily be adapted

With the new micro / mini servos and batteries available today, is it possible to convert this autogyro to radio control? Maybe just using rudder and elevator and a throttled .049.

I have already started the build on this one - as soon as I get along a little farther, I will post pics of my progress.

Safe Landing's posted plans are not really like the one in the pic. That is a beautiful job someone has done on it. Where did the picture come from Steve?

You are right - Safe Landing's posted plans are not of the Cierva but of a free flight autogiro called "Little Juan" which is the one I am converting to RC and which I have started the build. Hope I didn't mislead anyone.

I have the servos. One of them is a HD mini servo for rotor roll control. I'm using a cox 049 product engine and one ounce sullivan round tank. Bought the lipo battery, voltage regulator and R/C cox cylinder-piston set from reputable dealers on "E". I just don't know if we are supposed to increase the length of the rotors to help carry the extra equipment.

Both are really neat, but do you know where the other image came from?

I don't know where the other image came from but to me it looks like an ARF type if there is such a thing in autogyro's.
