I had a very nice twin rotor auto. I'll dig out the piccies when I get home. It crashed and burnt due to excess G loading in flight at high speed when my thumb slipped off the stick and the controls returned to neutral, this allowed the angle of attack of the rotor to return to normal but due to their high rotational speed at that moment and the consequent high lift generated the airframe failed. T'was a good crash! Lots of bits floating down

Cheers Chaps - as I say im considering one as a LONG TERM winter build project, im def in no rush to get cracking yet (I havent located plans or anything yet!) , and quite frankly I know very very little about them - other than they look and fly different and different fying stuff seems to float my boat if you know what I mean!
I will be doing some research first, but I do know there are different types e.g single or double rotor versions - anyone suggest one to try to have a crack at? any easier to build or fly than others?

Gary - any mention of things along the lines of "It doesnt really matter cos it wont be in the air for that long" and you get a poke in the eye!

Try this one
www.dickvisker.nl/twirl.pdf

It's a lightweight electric version of the very popular twin rotor Dave Boddington plan and kit.

The kits are still available ready cut but I don't have details just now. There is usually someone at the big shows with the kits ready to sell.

In fact it's the one Roy B has just posted a message just as I was sending this one

I've got a kit here you could look at but it's not for sale

Ben, is your thinking that having an autogyro will cut a path through the trees, rather than getting stuck in the trees??
