Looking good Malcolm smile d

Are you going to go with a cowl like Chris's?

The plan is to do a cowl, I've modelled one in CAD, just need to kick the 3D printer back in to action, and then decide if that's good enough to use or make a plug from it and Vac form from the print.

The colour change line although inspired by the plan, found its shape in the kitchen cupboardimg_7525.jpg

The wheel pants are made from Craft foam (EVA), nice and flexible. Temporarily fixed with double sided tape, but when I'm happy with the shape then I'll get out the UHU. img_7523.jpg

Edit....just had a thought .....incidence packing?

Edited By Cuban8 on 14/06/2019 21:05:04

Yes, incidence packing on the blade underside to give a little bit of -negative incidence (if required)

God Bless you Tom, you have been and still are an inspiration. A true Gent who rekindled my interest in Autogyros and was never too busy to give help and advice.

My thoughts are with you and your family,

The Chiltern model flying Club is pleased to announce its Autogyro open Day will be held on Saturday 16th May 2015, (ie in just a couple of weeks time!), near to Luton.

We have several confirmed gyronuts attending already but welcome other interested pilots and modellers.

Last years event was a great success and we are hoping for another great day. (Have already booked a nice sunny day and slight wind)

Please message me for further details if you interested in attending.


Malcolm and Tim

I don't think you can post pdf on here, only photos.

Tom emailed a set last night, so I've put them on my website.

They can be accessed at in the "Download" section.

I hope this helps

Sounds intriguing, I'll watch with interest


Thread: Autogyro Blades from AJ Blades

Thanks for the thanks!

On my Auto-G there is no side thrust, and about 5 degrees down thrust.

The manual has one diagram on the C of G position and it's not particularly clear but seem to indicate that it should be 220mm back from the spinner tip, which comes out at about the forward edge of the mast base. I don't remember measuring mine, I just put the battery in and flew it,

You'll need to add some strengthening material either thin ply or glass fibre to the top surface to help stop the bolt/washer pulling through.

Then you'll need to sheet the bottom surface for 1.5" or so, with either GF or thin Ply, so that the blade glides on the delta-plate and the plate prevented from digging into the softer wooden blade. This surface also provides a stable platform on which to attach and shims you may need.

You will need to cover blades with a smooth covering, eg solarfilm/profilm type covering.

The end of the blades are normally rounded off and a chamfer cut on the trailing edge so that the blades can be folded back
