The GyrOne is a self starting autogyro model. An autogyro is a type of rotary wing aircraft supported in flight by the lift provided by a rotor. Unlike a helicopter, the rotor of an autogyro is driven by aerodynamic forces alone once it is in flight, and thrust is provided by an engine-powered propeller similar to that of a fixed-wing aircraft.

This model is very easy to fly, similar to a normal plane. Some
aerobatic figures can be flown, even if not quite like a plane. The
flight performance makes this a unique model in the autogyro field. Take
off is operated with pre-rotation of the rotor. Landing can be done
with or without the main motor running. The frame is aluminum,
assembled in parts with plates and bolts. Some minor parts are plywood
laser cut. All parts can be easily assembled including the rotor head.
rotor pre-rotation is can be achieved with a removable battery drill or
with an electric motor mounted on the model just below the rotor head.
The front landing gear is connected to the rudder motion. The main
landing gear is aluminum complete with wheels and plastic pants. The
tail has the horizontal part in polyurethane, fiberglass covered, as are
the main vertical tail and the two smaller side elements.
front covering of the fuselage is transparent Lexan divided in two parts
ready to be painted; their assembly is done with plastic rivets (in the
kit). The rotor blades are polyurethane with glass and Carbon fiber
The model is supplied in kit be assembled quickly and easily. The kit is
not including the receiver, the servo controls, the batteries, the ESC
and the motors (the main and the optional pre-rotation one). The final
assembly can be done in few hours, ready for the first flight.
are no construction differences between the electrical and the IC
versions. The electric motor is installed in place of the IC one thanks
to a proper radial base, the main battery in place of the fuel tank (300
cm3). Both versions have similar total weight allowing for the weight
of the fuel. The kit does not include the enamel paint for Lexan parts.
