What engine? Prerotator I assume? Any electronic flight stabilization? Looks great! I'd like to see a flight vid too!

Prerotator....I don't think so! But yes, what size engine. Where's the build thread?

Not sure but it might be a British design. I have the plans somewhere but lost my bookmark for the thread.

Very nice. The transition between 'no lift' and 'lift' (and vice versa) is certainly sudden with autogyros. Must make takoff and landings tricky!

I've had a couple of autogyro including the Begi and a "trainer" profile and have yet to have success taking off from the ground. They want to roll before takeoff. I have flown planes and helis for many years but autogyros are my nemesis.

Yes, a gentleman at my club experimented for a while, but never had much success. I once thought that an autogyro would be the way to go if I wanted a light aircraft for myself, but I don't think so now.
