GYRATOR?


Pretty cool. Might there be plans available?
Thanks,

All of those are cool, but the Gyrator tops the list I think...

How do you spin the rotor up before takeoff?

What else.. a skylane42


Plane was built using some simplified construction. Totally scratch built using my own plans.. 2 channel, Cox Med .09, total flying weight was 28 ounces. Plane would do 10 foot dia loops forever..

Hi Keith, PROACE....Sorry for the slow response, I only have web access at work and am off on weekends.

Here's a link to a thread over in the RCU 1/2A forum that will answer all your questions.....probably more than you want to know actually! http://www.rcuniverse.com/forum/m_61...gyrator/tm.htm

It's a fairly long thread but documents the design and construction pretty well.

Keith, I just start the rotor turning with a flip of the finger and run into the wind.....the 15 deg. Delta hinging and the SG6042 airfoil does th rest.

PROACE, there are no plans available at this time but I'm supposed to be doing a const. article with plans for F.M. magazine.

Milton, that's some excellent work you've done. I really like the obviously large amount of time and effort that you put into your designs. The soda bottle cowlings are great too, I never though of shrinking them...

Here is a pic of my Littlest Stick. It is pictured with a TD .010 but now flies with a TD .020! It really hauls now! It weighs 6.5 oz. and has aileron/elevator for controls. All wing incidence has been removed. This little plane stays in the back seat of the car cuz you never know when you need a fix! Haw!

OK, OK....now we're doing .010's again are we? Here's my KwikStik 010. 25" span, 121 Sq. in., weighs under 5 oz. Clark Y airfoil, rudd/elev control. Flies great. Pic shows it sitting on the cowl of a 40% Edge.....the prop on the Edge is bigger than the plane's wingspan!

D-Bird,

My Low Stick is full house four channel. I may build another wing for it with retracts! I have a set of the GWS micro retracts just waiting for a wing.

TOP DAWG finished


Here is a pic of the Top Dawg I started last month. The frame up pic is on page 1 of this tread. I modified the canopy area for a little different look. The engine hangin on the front is an Norvel .061

The Top Dawg was a great kit from Top Flight. I built one and crashed it in a pond in the late 60s. My dad saw it fly and wanted to learn to fly too. He never got to.
I ordered the plans from RCM and hope I can build another one some day.
