As some of you may already know, I am still trying to get my Auto gyro to fly. Last time I tried I spent most of the afternoon driving round the patch trying to get the rotors up to speed. Some kind person suggest that I take the rotors off and turn it into a car.

Not for want of trying ;)

I can confirm that it did actually get in the air on Sunday, provided that you define "in the air" as the wheels off the grass, rather than "flying" as we know it... Still it's a start :D
