I wonder why they're releasing yet another low-level Tx like this... isn't their current lineup with the 9X plenty?

The Module I greatly understand though. Lets you use the cheap OrangeRx's in your foamies when you want to, but your Futaba link in your $5k hotliner

On the front page! I had been looking at these off and on for a few years, but didn't really want to scratchbuild a gyro with a depron rotor blade.

I ordered one of the Duraflys tonight with a few spare parts for $117 Air Parcel. Maybe I'll get more interested in these now.

The Orange is a 6 Channel Computer Radio (unlike most of the rest of the range) with all the functions you would expect and a few more besides and is of course compatible with the most popular Orange RX's, so we feel it makes perfect sense, many pilot's don't want or need more than 6 Channels.

[ot] I see the orange dsm2 module, but only in JR case format. Is there a futaba/hitec module case format in there as well? I can't find it. [/ot]

Looks like HK has the Auto-Gs back in stock. Question for the experts out there. Are the Gyrocopters in the "Clear View Simulator" any where close to flying an actual model Gyrocopter? I was thinking on trying the Clear View simulator out with some of the 3rd party model autogyros for practice.

Just ordered one and looking forward to flying it. Yes the simulator will help. This thing will turn like a chopper this is not a bank and yank. You will need to use rudder to swing the tail around to complete turns like a Heli

Er, your point ignoring the thousands of Orange DSM2 RX users?! Anyway, back to Auto-G's.

I will try the Clear View Sim. out. I am hopeing that alot of the people buying the Auto-G will post here on thier flying results and/or mods. From what I am reading about the Autogyros is, they should be hand launched , (with the rotor spinning fast enough) for the first few flights till you get them trimmed out good. I guess R.O.G.ing is alittle on the tricky side especially, if the rotor isn't spinning fast enough.

true, you need proper blades rpm before take off. but it's easy to take off from ground, just do not add elevator, the gyro will fly by itself when speed is enough.

+1

Assuming you have a nice flat strip of asphalt or land that can be used for take off

Personally I have not such a place, and I don't believe it can take off from a grass field unless is like a golf green

So ... I will experiment with hand launch

It will be nice to have some way to power the main rotor at take off ... like some real autogyro.can do
