Check these things out. I never knew such a thing even existed until someone posted a video over on arcHeli.

Maybe they're for people who are too uncoordinated to fly R/C.
The look entertaining for all of about 3 seconds.

Here's a monocopter launch gone terribly wrong

Here's a 7 engine model that also didnt go so well

This one actually looks kinda neat. It almost looks like it has two blades as it spirals towards the ground.

Just an idea:

I'm assuming all these monocopters are more or less just flat pieces of wood. (no airfoil).

Imagine what it would do if it was an airfoil.
I'm thinking someone who is crafty with this sort of thing could make some good use out of broken helicopter blades.

Here's some info on how to make one:

Looks like a 450-size woody blade might do the trick.

Im w/ Gyronut

I've got a nito powered one ! They do have a flat wing solid sheet airfoil, and a counter balance you adjust so they auto down. To hold the LE edge up in flight they have a small adjustable elevator.

ABSOLUTLY WILD when you can get the motor running right and have the kids to chase after them. Get's real entertaining when the motor sags a bit right after lift off, and it floats around the field going up and down, changing RPM around 6 foot.

I did it a few years ago at a fun fly - everyone was ROLFLTAO as it came near the pits. Mine's around 5 foot long.

The nitro one's turn very very slow and make a weird whoomp / whoomp sound as they turn.

I think you can still get the prints under : Mc Cutchin Machine: MAN, or the old RCM.

Grate way to sacrafice .049's. I always wanted to RC one but the pitch and throttle is about all you could control if I did it. Ha ! gona dust mine off !!!
