If you hover your cursor on the page for a few minutes, a pop up offers the gyro for $10 off.

I tried to get an on line recommendation for batteries but the chat wasn't helpful. I kept getting transferred and asked the same questions. I'm not an electric flyer but you would think they had some experience with novices of all types.

As far as a lipo for this goes, pretty much any 1300mah 3s (3 cell) of 20C or higher should work fine...

Yeap, we used our nano tech 1300mah 3s lipo, but any 3s 1300mah 'brick' type of 20C+ should suffice.

Happy Landings

Did you use EMS ?

What make you think you will get in 1 week time ?

Using normal Air Parcel, I would expect 1 week time for move the JIT to main warehouse, and then around 2 weeks air shipping time + maybe 1 week delay for custom. ... so ... we are speaking in a range of 4 weeks for get in Europe ...

But .. if you got for 56$ EMS, you may get next week ...

Hi Guys,

I am tryinvg to buy one of these autogyros, but no matter what I choose, I am only offered the $51 SCS express postage.

I have tried adding several small items, but no luck.
Can you please give me an example of a cheap item that will reduce my postage ?

Thanks

Ian

May be it's the only postage available in your country. Where are you from?
