Build an Auto Giro Plane Model Plans
These plans are for an autogyro model. We have two versions of these plans.
From the plans:
Before you conclude that this is a model
of a helicopter, take another look. It's a model
plane with a spinning wing, or rotor, that windmills
in the slip stream of a conventional propeller
to provide the lift necessary for flight.
rotor is self-spinning and that's where the autogiro
or gyroplane, as it is now called, differs
from the airplane and the helicopter in appearance,
in flying characteristics and also in construction.
And on the end of a control line it
is a new experience for model-plane fans.
Control-line gyros have been built, of course,
and flown with fair success. But none could be
considered spectacular performers. Some showed
a persistent tendency to roll up in the control
lines and some that performed satisfactorily
otherwise developed an arm-shaking vibration.
