Full Description

In days of old R/C autogyros had a habit of being a bit hit ‘n’ miss. Fortunately, thanks in no small part to Richard Harris and his numerous successful single-rotor designs, times have changed. Stand by for another whirly winner from Mr Gyronut himself!

Like the full-size Richard Harris’s Revolver II carries many of Ken Wallis’s gyro genetics, it has been developed over a few years with the help of a handful of the UK’s top gyronuts. As a result, it has turned out to be a great flier that is the perfect follow on from his Panther (RC2114) https://www.sarikhobbies.com/product/panther-head-pack/ that so many have now built and flown successfully. This second-generation rugged pusher has been built around the popular 3s 2200mAh LiPo and the ready-made DC control head unit.

  • Name: Revolver II
  • Model type: Single rotor pusher autogyro
  • Designed by: Richard Harris
  • Functions (servos): Pitch (1); roll (1); rudder (1); throttle (via ESC)
  • Rec’d powertrain: Turnigy Aerodrive D3530/14 1100KV brushless outrunner; 40A ESC; 3S 2200mAh LiPo; 8 x 7.5” propeller
  • Rec’d head: C30 Razer – www.coolwind.co.uk

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 May 2019 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? Go on why not give it a try and get building!

The Autogyro:- Juan 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.

What’s in a Laser or CNC Cut Wood Pack? – A CNC or laser cut wood pack contains most, if not all, of the intricately shaped parts shown on the plan, which would be difficult or time-consuming to cut out by hand. It does not contain any sheet or strip wood, which you will need to buy separately. Alternatively, you can purchase an Additional Wood Pack, if available. Our Laser or CNC Cut Wood Packs only contain balsa, ply and lite ply and do not include other materials that may be required to complete the model, such as hardwoods, metals and GRP sheets.

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 modelling 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 and GRP sheet.

What’s in a Short Kit? – A short kit usually contains, where available, the plan, the laser/CNC cut wood pack, additional wood pack, canopy, cowl or any other available Glass Fibre or plastic moulded items.
