Hi guys

I fly quite often in a real gyro copter. I am amaized that they are not more popular as they really do fly well. Very stable even in windy conditions, can almost stand still with power off and land at a dodle. Now one thing I have never done is flown a single rotor model gyrocopter. I'm looking for some help as to how they fly as models compared to a fixed wing model? I want a small electric one that I could put my 480 e-flite motor into. I also want to carry a payload, either a camera or FPV equipment.

I want to turn on a dime but also to be stable. Is vibration a problem with these craft?

Thanks
