Granville (i.e., GeeBee) Racing ... AUTOGRYO?

I just came accross this one and thought I'd share it.

http://retromechanix.com/granville-r...yroplane-1935/

It seems VERY unlikely ... but I don't make them up, I just post them.

If anyone has any other information about this, please share it.

With that mast angle relative to fuselage lateral line and blade height to rudder don't think that would work, interesting idea but a few dimensions would need to be adjusted

I LOVE autogyros and am always looking for ones that might have been overlooked by history.

A short time ago I came across the Nagler VG-1 Vertigyro and posted it on the Scale Drawings forum. An interesting use of an old Piper:
