"The Shape of Things to Come"

Due to the fire we sufered 2 years ago, which severly damaged our shop, the rotocraft project is currently on hold. We are up and running with our successful engine/redrive packages.

Please stay tuned for further updates.

Tractor GyroPlanes

Tractor design allows for maximum propeller diameter 
and increased efficiency in clean air with front nose cowl
and fairing to provide maximum thrust and performance.

Taildragger landing gear with large "tundra tires", cable
braced tempered aluminum main gear, and steerable
tailwheel for superior handling off runway on rough terrain.

Conventional elevator control in the pitch axis to minimize
"porpoising" and "bunt-over" - the main causes of fatalities
in conventional gyro-copters.

Chrome-moly roll cage construction with pilot enclosure 
and lexan windshield for optimal safety and pilot comfort.

Optional pre-rotator assembly for reduced take off distance.
