Something I found recently...

I was driving home recently and caught a glimpse of something that caught my interest and I went back and took a few pics today..

I also want to say, while I know little to nothing of designing a model gyro, let alone a full scale one, I think this one stands little to no chance of being successful. I don't believe there is enough vertical fin/rudder, and as close as the blades come to them at rest, it looks like a good possibility that what is there could be easily removed by the blades.

Cessna made something like that back in the 1930's.
The Heli version flew, but I don't think the Gyro version flew.

Interesting, but I don't think the helicopter was a modified aircraft, but rather it's own design.
