Javier Fernandez' Autogyro
And now for something completely different ... Regular Flying Lines contributor Javier Fernandez of Cordoba, Spain, produced this unusual autogyro that flies well. It is powered by an Enya .09. See a video of the gyro in flight -- and download a plans drawing. Javier Fernandez photo.
Floyd Carter's 32
Floyd Carter of Eugene, Ore., has run out of names for his many stunters, so this one is called "32." After experimenting with several electrics, he made this one his first serious electric stunter in the spring of 2013. It has a 60-inch span and is powered by an AXI 2826/12 motor and a 5S-3300 battery. Prop is a 12x6 and weight 60 oz. Note the anhedral designed to get the leadouts of the high-mounted wing near the fuselage center. Floyd Carter photo.
