MX 2 Autogyro Conversion

For the past three weeks I have been trying to finish some projects here at the RC Hotel
This one I started back in 2013 and it survived the fire in 2014
It started as going to be a twin rotor but decided to use one
The donor model is an MX 2 the wings were damaged and I saved the fuselage from being scrapped
Video soon as uploaded

That was looking very promising Joe, what do think the problem was?

Rich it was a bit of a handful and as I was getting it trimmed it felt much better
Didn't find anything wrong that would make it roll sharp right,got it repaired but will leave it for now and try again in April

The dreaded right turn! Too much control, not enough forward speed and too sharp a turn I think?

That looked very good though. Ground handling is great. Bit too much aileron movement. Flies quite fast, but lands very nicely.
