    Scratchbuild Gyrocopter

    Here are pics of a gyrocoptor I just completed. It has a 37" rotor and weighs in at 400 grams. Debating about adding a pilot. Should have some flight pics next week.

    Pilot will probably make it more stable - definately more realistic!

    Very nice model!!!! ------------------ can't wait for your vids!

    Thanks. You brought up a good point about added stability by adding a pilot. Since this is my first gyro, I could use all the help I can get. Has anyone see any gyrocopter models for ClearView?

    I thought I saw a gyro copter in my clear view? I'll have to look again or it's an add on you can download.

    You should put an old hag in the pilots seat!
