Depron Autogyro with counterrotating central rotors

Remembering the fun I had several years ago with Al Foot`s wonderful Twirl, I made this simple Depron Autogyro. Counterrotating Rotors, RET controls. Fuselage is taken from my Jupiter Junior biplane design. Plans are in preparation and will be available as a free download on Modell-Aviator.de.
First flights were not succesful, it was willing to go in a turn, but refused to go back to neutral. Rotor dihedral solved the problem and now it is a great fun machine.
Working title is Kwirl in honour of Alīs design.
