Dan,

I wanted the wing to swing left and right with the fuselage when I apply rudder inputs. Maybe I don't quite understand your question.

I think the way you did it is the best. I'm just curious about what would happen with a free pivoting delta with a fin.

Hello everyone, my name is Miguel writing from Madrid (Spain)
I built my first autogyro based on the J-AG4 but I have a question:
Where to place the center of gravity?
I send you a picture that you may see the result.
Regards,

Cg

"Where to place the center of gravity?"

At the rotor shaft, or slightly forward.

I am just finishing off my Twirl and already I am looking for my next build.I had planned on building the mono twirl but this one is hard to resist.Flown many scratchbuilt foamies but never an auto gyro so its all new learning for me.
Should get the twin rotor twirl out for its maiden next week if the weather lets me.
Plans printed out and ready for cutting foam.

The plans are excellent with lots of info ,well done.
Getting a bit late for any more building tonight so will carry on tomorrow.

Having finished my Mono Twirl yet to be tested I couldn't wait to get started on this little gem.Very simple build and from what I have seen in the videos a great flyer.Really going to try and keep the weight down and using Uhu Por instead of hot glue.
Not much done yet but still waiting for my 2mm carbon rod before I can get on with the 3 blade rotor.

I would love to do some video but it will have to be a bit later on once I have learnt to fly one of these things.I have only flown a twin rotor twirl which is a bit of a cheat when it comes to gyro flying as they fly so easily.
This has been a very enjoyable build and I hope I can get it to fly just half as good as your one has flown in your videos.

Thanks for making the Auto-gyros available to us foamy addicts.
