Don't know about that second model either, but if you're simply looking for an indoor autogyro, LightFlite makes a Twirl foamie that has always impressed me when I've seen it fly. There were two that I remember at JR this year. Haven't flown one though and certainly nowhere near a scale look.

Just thought I'd throw this in the mix ...

I actually had the privilege of building/flying one of the prototype Twirl kits for LightFlite at E-Fest back in 2008.

Here's a link to the video -
Al Foot's Twirl Autogyro by Lightflite E-Fest Feb. 2008 (4 min 45 sec)

I was flying one of the Twirls at JR this year - the one without lights.

They are excellent indoor flyers! I especially enjoy driving it up vertical until the rotors stop and then doing a vertical descent.

Kits are available here - (search for "Twirl")
