Post a picture of your whopper.

I think about the hereafter. I go somewhere to get something, then wonder what I'm here after ?

Its never flown, only taxi across the runway! But if i ever get that far I will post a vid for sure. Honestly can't decide if its worth flying, hanging for looks or just trading for something i can actually fly. some PM's here have me second guessing the madien.

That is one nice looking machine. Is that gear thing under the engine to spin up the blades ? If so, how does it disconnect during flight ?

In the frame there is a clutch system (servo engage/disengage) that gets the blades up to speed for a shorter take off. Once the blades are spooled up you disengage the clutch so they are freewheeling and off you go, assuming all goes well.

If you have no exp with autogyro's then IMO, Hang tthe thing up and learn on something else of just get rid of it.

There are some parts laying aound but they are a at a premium.

It is a decent flyer once you get it up or at least mine was.
