Jaun de la Cierva took to the skies in his auto rotational flying machine almost 100 years ago. His designs, along with most others of the period, shared one common denominator, they were all of
a tractor configuration. In some form or another most modern pusher autogyros have adopted the ground-breaking work of Ken Wallis, indeed today’s machines are noted for their safety record and are known to many pilots as the motorbike of the skies.
Incidentally, it’s a recognised fact that pusher autogyros are a little trickier to set up than their tractor counterparts, however fear not as this is covered in RCM&E and there are articles on www.modelflying.co.uk. Get this model trimmed and sorted and you’ll love it. There’s nothing quite like flying a pusher autogyro, indeed when perfected they have a massive flight envelope which is sure to improve even the hardened fixed-wing pilot’s ability on the sticks. Your intrigued, right? Gone on why not give it a try and get building!
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 Sarik Hobbies or other modelling wood stockists. 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 and GRP sheet.
