Kellet Autogiro Kit

Black Hawk Models offers control line Kellet autogiro kit and for a limited time they are making a special one of Amelia Earhart's Beech-Nut plane. These are a lot of fun and easy to build.

Here's the link to the Kellett he's refering to.Kellett control line model I would think that model would fly without the rotor as much wing area as it has. Could be a good starting point for modifying it into an R/C version. Thanks for the info Bob.

This was a Musciano design from the mid 50's. The fuslage is 8 1/2" long and carved from a 1 1/2" x 2" block. The wing is 16" x 3". The blades and rotor hub are laser cut. The model is on the Musciano Page of our web site: WWW.BLACKHAWKMODELS.COM

It will fly without the rotor but not like an autogiro.
