Full Description

The goal for designer Rich Harris for Gyroo was to create a simple multi-task autogyro that would be perfect for the beginner, yet equally enticing for the more experienced gyro nut wanting to try their hand at auto aerobatics. So a unique modular design was created, in which the boom, mast and tail feathers are easily removed from the basic profile type fuselage pod, allowing for quick replacement of parts, if needed.

At the time of design, balsa was difficult to source so a lot of the materials were biased around available workshop stock, predominantly lite-ply and spruce, producing a rugged and moderately cost airframe. All of the pre-submission models have been electrified around the popular 3S 2200mah LiPo and incorporate the nifty Coolwind Razor head unit. The Gyroo has turned out to be a little cracker in the air, which has surpassed its design objectives.

If you have any questions regarding the Gyroo why not pop into www.modelflying.co.uk and say hello in the healthy autogyro section. There you will find what I call the Gyrooists – several die-hard Gyronuts from around the world who have also built and tested the Gyroo. They have shared their own experiences, setups and clever modifications.

Please note: Wood for the blades is in the Additional Wood Pack and need to be profiled.

Additional materials required that are not included:

1) As with all our wood packs the usual motor/ESC/radio/battery etc
2) 1mm and 1.5mm GRP sheet for the rotor head. (coolwind.co.uk)
3) Razor head unit (coolwind.co.uk)
4) 3mm piano wire for the undercarriage
5) 1.5mm piano wire for the tail skid
6) 2X 60mmø lightweight wheels

What’s in an Additional Wood Pack?

Our Additional Wood Packs contain MOST of the necessary sheet and strip wood needed to complete a model being built from a Sarik Hobbies plan and using the associated Laser Cut Wood Pack, if available. We stock a wide range of balsa, ply and spruce in popular sheet and strip sizes but even so we cannot guarantee to be able to supply all the wood necessary to complete each model. So some additional purchases may be required from other modeling wood stockists if not available from Sarik Hobbies. Our Additional Wood Packs only contain balsa, ply and spruce wood in the stock sizes as used by our suppliers and do not include other materials that may be required to complete the model such as hardwoods, metals & GRP sheets.
