PostSubject: New larger Autogyro build.   Fri 23 Oct 2015, 11:51 am

With the outstanding success of the first autogyro (only joking still trying to fly !) I have commenced building a 1.5 times larger Crane Fly Autogyro.All parts cut by hand from an enlarged plan. The power unit will be a 50 sized four stroke. No more of this electric nonsense.
with a little luck I have posted a picture of the started model.This one will have home made blades and rotor head rotor diameter about one metre...how can it fail you ask!i  There is a carbon fibre boom 900mm long added to this fuss so will make quite a large model.

My new toy also shown.

if there is any interest I will post build pics as they progree.

Happy flying (and crashing as an Autogyro novice)

More build pictures added today.This also shows my first attempt at making blades.The quest is on to fly a autogyro properly(could be a long time).

03/11/15 more pics.Rotors seem massive @ 1.2 metre span. Rotor mast seems too long but is right as per plan ,may reduce its length.Is anyone watching ?

Building has progressed it is turning into a monster.Still not sure about rotor mast height it looks too long but is as per the enlarged plan.



NEARLY FINISHED.. Here is the latest Contraception nearly done  just mior covering and a small servo issue ..Then Ready for Adrian to try (bring your hard hat)
