You probably already know, but just in case, you can get this autogyro from Black Hawk models at:

http://bjm-home.com/models.html

It's on my list of Hollow Loggers...if I can keep the momentum going out in the shop.

Kim, I'm a little ashamed to say that I didn't know a Blackhawk kit was available for this model although I have looked through his site many times.

I found it on ebay for $40 BIN with $10.84 shipping. I think my bid for that one was $26 before I noticed his $27.00 shipping charge. I'm not sad that I was overbid, but it did come with a Babe Bee.

The Blackhawk model does not come with decals. If I get it I would like to find the Kellett Autogyro decals or decal it like the one that you pictured.

Does it really fly like an autogyro or is the rotor more like a decoration that spins in the wind? The wing looks big enough for a plane that size. For a "real" gyro flying, you'd need to give some initial speed for the rotor before and during take-off.

Cool model nonetheless Smile

Cox engined Autogyro Empty Autogyro or not?

Post  706jim Thu Mar 19, 2015 9:27 am

I'd say you're right about the wing. It would fly just fine without the rotor.

Years ago, I built a "Little Toot" for a friend. You guessed it; the top wing broke off shortly afterwards.

Back in the days of slow drying Ambroid glue, we just sparked her up and flew without the top wing and didn't even bother to change the balance point.

In this case, perhaps the reverse could be tried: Remove the wing!

The auto-gyros my friends have don't have that big airplane wing and they fly like an auto-gyro. I've been wanting to build one for a long time.

I've got a REALLY tattered plan sheet for a free flight auto gyro called "Little Juan". I got from Bill Hannan a long time ago, and gyro itself is from the early 60's. It seems to be a semi-scale model of a full scale gyro, but I haven't looked into it in much depth. I'm pretty sure it's wingless, and is REAL short-bodied. Just another back-burner thought.

I've also got a magazine plan SOMEWHERE for a 1/2A control liner based on the Cierva/Avro Gyro. I'll post it if i can find it.

So many ideas...so little time...

I have a couple sets of drawings too, but I can't post them from here. If anyone is interested I can make copies or I have at least two of them on the computer. I should check with one of the guys to make sure I can offer the 1/2A plans to you all.

Laughing:lol!:maybe it's the lack of nicotine.. Shocked Shocked Shocked Shocked  Laughing  lol!   "Phred's Phault" could use a resurrection too.. and believe me; I've been poking around the Phred's Phault parts-bag. I have "model-project parts-bags" that have configured-engines.. hardware packages.. and bits of work that get forgotten about. I find them when I go fishing around for things. I don't "mean" to abandon them... they just become a product of how the life-cards are dealt.

Frank Carisle was a interesting individual. Sadly he left us a few years back. I had fun with him at Brodak's . Frank had a knack for the unusual. He enjoyed twins especially. I never saw his autogyro fly, I did get to witness many of his other creations. Ken

I should've mentioned in addition the pilot flying the autogyro. His name is Dan Berry, a cabinet maker by trade. Dan is a NATS Free flight winner and a standup guy who's recently over the past 6-7 years moved into control line. Dan's brother Clayton who also left us was a very very important part of the control line hobby and he too sadly left us.

That video of Dan flying the gyro was filmed at SMALL 2017. I was standing by watching that flight and a fun time was had by all!
