Pusher prop rc autogiro, I would stay with Safelandigs (Rich Harris). Trusted and well thought out designs, honestly, I won't look anywhere else.

Well, I jumped the gun and ordered one of Paolos Gyrone. Hope the package from Italy arrives in the next days:

It's great to see that Ladbroke hobbies is carrying a range of autogyro kits,and hope this will encourage new players to this " dark side" of the hobby .

Now Steve.......let's be nice! A heavy fragile fast flying autogyro could be exactly what BZ Frank is looking for. so let's just sit back and watch the show. I love new projects! New pilots.

You will like the Gyrone I have been flying the Mk1 for a few years now and the new one is even better, when you get yours can you start a separate thread from this one so that there is no confusion
Here is one of my early flights

Test flight 4. (5 min 41 sec)
