Giant XL 1:3.5 Scale RC Gyrocopter


An autogyro or gyroplane, is a type of rotorcraft that uses an unpowered rotor in free autorotation to develop lift.

While similar to a helicopter rotor in appearance, the autogyro’s unpowered rotor disc must have air flowing upward across it to make it rotate.

Not something you would expect to see at an LMA Show ! John flies his scratch built gyrocopter at LMA Cosford Show.


This model is to a scale of 1:3.5 and is powered by a 4-Max PO 6366-230 brushless electric motor running on 10S 5200mah lipo flight pack. It has a rotor span of 2.1 metres and weighs 6 KG. Control is via tilting rotor head, rudder and throttle.
