Nice videos guys. Sammy I think your Cierva only has 6 lives left!! Good going though!
Judging from the videos and my own experience my Cierva fly's a good bit slower than with the stock blades. I only flew the stock blades once after maidening the bird with the homemade blades . The stock blades required a good bit more speed to stay airborne.

Your C-30 seemed to keep it's nose up during turns much better than mine does.

What's your setup?

There was an air show at a local small airport and our flying club was there to do RC demo flights. There was a great RC heli pilot going to demo so I didnt want to bring my heli. Lots of scale guys and big 40% gas airplane guys going to demo with the usual hovering also. I have nothing special as far as airplanes anymore. So the guys asked me to bring the HK autogyro.
So there she was a tiny little thing next to all these giant aircraft in the pits. More people asked me about the thing ,,how it worked ,,who invented it ,,when did it first fly etc. Lots of 8 to 14 year olds and of course some old guys KNEW What it was!! I was amazed. Real aviation enthusiasts. So all the giant rc planes had landed and no real aircraft were landing or taking off so i went for it!! She flew great,,[for her anyways] and I just took it easy with left hand turns and keep her low so people could see and hear the blades going. Hundreds of people and real pilots stared at this teeny whirlygig put put through the air doing nothing special other than staying aloft
She was an absolute hit. Many people in the audience came up to me afterwards to say they stayed just to see the little gyro go. Well thats my little story.

Hello Turbo,

Do you have any recent videos of your aircraft? You've done a nice job, and it's great to hear you are generating interest in our hobby.

Actually create your short video clip. Then send it to your email address where you can get it with your PC. Then you upload the video to YouTube.com or Photobucket.com.
Then you can copy the URL link for the video clip and post it in the message post in this forum.
You can send the video clip to your Youtube account directly from the phone, but I never tried it.

Adding to this, you may find your clip is a very large file size AVI, so just run it through DIVX PLUS Converter before uploading, to reduce file size. The DIVX converter is free from DIVX.com
