I have material & plans for both autogyros, so which would be better to learn on?

Thanks, Sven

Sven,
I would go with the Whippit, flies well and can take a knock.

Thanks Rich

The Whippit is what I was leaning towards, however, I think the Burky will come right after. They both seem like really good designs.

Hi Sven,

having built 2 Whippits and seen several Burky's fly they are both great but I would suggest the Whippit is the one to start as Epp is so flexible and bounces.

Depron is light but rather brittle if you have a bump.... Just my opinion

I just built me a new Burky II look alike. It has a total of 2 flights on it. Still needs some fine tuning, but flys very nice.
Rich I hope you don't mind me posting this here. I built this using the pictures to get it to look like a Burky II. But as you can see there are some differances. It still has the nice stable flight of the Burky, and looks the part.
