It looks pretty interesting. Looks like a spin off of the soda pup from Arizona Autogyro. http://cgi.ebay.com/COOLER-RC-Autogy...item2557d32fae

So pretty well the thing is $145.00 with shipping which I'm assuming that includes the landing gear and gimbal and hardware. Not a bad buy.

I would like to see a build on it for sure.

Interesting until the head breaks - it looks like that plastic that won't take glue (polypropylene?).Also I can't make out the flapping head material and bearing assembly.
Nice to see an alternative gyro though.It is not on the UK Ebay site yet.

I'm not sure who originally designed it, but it does look remarkably like the Soda-Pup from AcoA. If you've never built from scratch I guess it's a decent deal. The link Joe posted has enough pictures that one could easily duplicate the build from scratch. I would be interested in the build thread, I won't be buying the kit though. It's getting tough to come up with a truely 'NEW" design, just about everything has been done at some point.

I did ask about the Cooler only, not about a C30 - sorry.

I guess they would advertize it if it were ready however...

Package arrived today (5 days - HK to Europe, thats fast!).

This is what you get:



Details of the head:





I am surprised by the quality so far. Wood parts are well cut, wood quality is good and the head (preassembled, screws all fixed with loctite) appears to be made to last. The plastic is not of the cheap, brittle kind but fiber enforced and looks and feels solid. Also there is a nice, large ball bearing and its spins very easily.

The rotor blades are profiled (flat-bottomed, looks like a thin Clark-Y to me), made from balsa and already covered. Their weight appears to be low and equal for all.

Whats missing is a printed manual - there is a CD with lots of images. The English text of the readme file is a bit on the funny side too. But what I can see from here the build is straightforward and not hard to do.

I'll keep you posted on my progress.

It's true Joe; You are indeed "Very Impressive"! I've seen your flying and a bit of your magic, but what do you think about the kit? Just kidding Joe, it's looking a bit more interesting than I initially thought.

Good luck with the Build bzfrank. I'll be watching this space for your progress.

Regards,
