I had a gyrace autogyro (dual rotors) that did the same thing with the standard set up. I changed out the set up and switched to two head assembly from www.flyingbalsa.com and the problem went away.

I think the problem is the blades are not able to flap and therefore rock the whole beast.

Hi, I don't have a twin rotor gyro but have been looking into the characteristics of flight of gyros and read that rotor direction plays a role in stability and performance for twins. I notice that your white and red rotors are turning in the direction where the outside tips are advancing and the inside tips are running along the prop wash. If you change the rotors from one side to the other it will help with this issue.
