Peter T's experiment with Gyro copters; needs a few modifications after test flight.
Photo's are a bit blurred but not as blurred as the copter is now!!

It flew exactly as the full-size ones did on their maiden flights back when I was a kid in the 80's.

Whats wrong Marcel?? The Gyro copter flew around the field quite well. Just because the landing was a bit hard??

Ahhm... I'm not quite sure if flying half a circuit under partial control could be deemed as flying "quite well"...

The out-landing was quite abrupt, that bit I agree with. When I flew Ziggy's or Vince's many years ago, it flew the same, only I fluked a little less than vertical arrival on the tarmac, which chipped the blades a bit from memory.

It's always exciting to see something fly that's a little different. Thanks for the excitement Peter T.

What do u mean partial control?? It was under full control when it flew, The control seemed 2 disappear when I wanted 2 turn towards the strip 4 landing. Just landed in the paddock instead. Ha!! Yes, is/was a bit different 4 sure. I thought it would fly in a light breeze better, but the Gyro just got blown away.
