The Finest Autogyro Plans Available

 

On this page you will find scratch building plans for great looking and flying model autogyros. From rotor diameters of 50 to 78 inches, they are all of built up construction, being mainly built from balsa, light ply, birch ply and piano wire. The only non standard part is the rotor blade mounting plate which is constructed from 1/16 inch G-10 fiber glass plate and is easily obtainable through your local hobby store or industrial supply company. Because of the forces involved with the rotors on direct control heads, we strongly recommend using high torque metal geared servos. We also suggest the same servo for on the rudder.

The .25 size Profile Kellett Autogyro is an easy model to make and is a profile as the title suggests. Easy to fly and is very tough!

The .25 size DAGs come in 2 versions. The original DAG R1 with it's simple but very elegant lines, is easy to build with stick construction. The DAG R2 version, which still has the pleasing lines of the original but with a rounded fuselage for a more �scale like� look using formers and stringers.

The 60 size DAG 60 is a beautiful large autogyro that floats and is graceful flying. It is the larger version of the R2 with some changes within the design.

The Pitcairn PCA-2 is a scaled down model of the famous Pitcairn PCA-2 autogyro with no controls needed on head, aileron, rudder and elevator are your controls. It is so easy to fly, you will think you are flying a trainer! A true beauty on the ground or in the air!

Basically the Choice is yours......

The DAG R2

� copyright Mon Feb 28 17:37:54 UTC 2011 - All Rights Reserved

 

  

 

The DAG R2 is the advanced brother of the DAG R1. Built up fuselage, stringers and formers really show off the curve of a true 1930's autogyro. Like the R1, this project is for the experienced scratch builder. Not a difficult build, the R2 does not disappoint to satisfy the builder pride after completion. She looks elegant.....but you can yank and crank her in the air. So much fun!

Rotor Span: 50 inches

Servos: Mini Servo metal geared for the Rudder
