Big thank you to Cali and the team at Winterton for a fabulous weekend. Gyro nuts can even have fun in 30 mph winds.

Here is a video taken from last weekend at Ragley Hall Model show near Stratford upon Avon in the UK, Saturday was probably the worst conditions I have ever had to fly in but we battled on, luckily Sunday saw almost perfect conditions. A huge thanks from myself to those who turned up to support the autogyro slots, I think we have grabbed a few more potential Gyronuts attention
Good also to catch up with Joe

Watch out for Brave Andrew Ellison being pushed by the crowd to fly through the ring of fire with his green flying cucumber..

Thanks again.

The big Panther in the Ragley Hall video is a twice size version of Richard Harris' design and is owned and flown by Rich himself. The plan for the original smaller version is available on modelflying .co.uk autogyro thread along with a build thread. There was no plan drawn up for the bigger version which has a lighter overall build structure. No doubt Rich could answer questions and I know it took the best part of 2-3 years development for it to fly as well as it now does as it was not just a case of doubling up on all sizes.
