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.

Bry,

Please post some details and information on obtaining plans if they're available!

-engine size?
-rotor span?
-source of blades?

Thanks,

Tom

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.
