Rotoruta Autogyro

RCModeler's Rotoruta Autogyro

Now here's a fun project that would be a quick-build: Jack Headley's autogyro designed for rudder-only control and an unthrottle Cox 049 (Medallion 049 with integral tank mount shown on the plans). The autogyro's twin 4-bladed rotors are free-spinning, i.e. they're not driven by a power plant such as in helicopters. Rather, the rotors are allowed to rotate freely and the forward-facing motor provides thrust for forward flight as the spinning rotors provide 'wing lift', so to speak. This model is fairly compact at 24" overall width, and would also be a good flier with a small electric motor and LiPo battery.

You should verify if the source file has the quality for the type of construction you intend to do, we will print the file without any kind of enhancement or scaling. To know if the file is good please download it and open it on a pdf viewer like Adobe pdf viewer and set the view level or zoom level to 100% or 1:1 or full scale or actual size, depending on which version or pdf viewer you are using. Also, using the measuring tool make sure all the parts fit together and have the correct size.

Plans Scaling:

We can scale the Rotoruta Autogyro plan for you. But please keep in mind that if this plan is not vector, if you enlarge it too much the quality will be degraded.
To order a scaled plan please copy the plan url or ID and send us a message with the desired wingspan an any other info you may find useful.

Postage:

We charge according to the ctt.pt postage table.

Tracking:

Tracking is available and is recommended.

Returns:

AeroFred.com is not a plans shop, we are a community of model builders exchanging model airplane plans in digital and physical formats, the digital format plans are free the prints have a cost and are printed on demand. Since we are not a shop, we don´t stock printed plans so when you order a paper print it will be created for you, for this reason we cannot accept returns.
It is very important that you download and inspect the pdf file before placing an order, in doubt please ask us for an opinion. If after doing all this you still get a plan you don´t like we can always find a solution but it will never be a perfect solution so please download and inspect the pdf file before ordering. We will only refund plans that arrived damaged, not plans you order without being sure you like.

Payments:

Orders can be paid with Paypal or Credit Card via Paypal and are shipped to the address on your Paypal account or to the address you set at checkout.

About the Calculator:

The Plans Price Calculator will read the plan file and output all the information on the panel to the right according to the selected options, you can change the options and request a new quote at any time.
If you would like to print a plan that is not on the website you can upload it to the main plans category in pdf format, multiple sheets in the same pdf file, and use the Plans Price Calculator to get a quote and place the order.
