They are a blast arent they? I have 4, 3 of which have flown, a G3PO, a Twirl, a Kestrel(currently tore up) and an unfinished DC Gyro. Challenging and fun, and different...I like em

Congratulations Tram, that is a very nice a/g you've got there
That has to be one of the smoothest takeoffs I've seen.

I had to smile when the camera man (or was it you?) said "I can not believe that thing flies".. I still think that when ever I fly mine

And the lesson learned ... Always land directly into the wind ?

Thanks guys..

Yeh, I couldn't imagine the thing was in the air.. It was me..

The lesson learned - Don't tilt the rotor while it's spun up and the Gyro is stationary and land into the wind..

Well... I've been fighting with my video camera.. It has been producing some really craptacular videos lately..

Well, I thought I had it sorted out, so I decided to test it on the PT Profile Gyro..

The good news - Looks like my video issues are sorted out..

The bad news:

Death of the Autogyro.... (0 min 41 sec)

It was looking so good and that first loop was perfect!

It looks very fixable, BTW. Don't give up!
