These are wonderful little desk toys, but more importantly, they are exceptional teaching aids for demonstrating gyro plane flight concepts!

This is not a cheap plastic model! All components CNC machined from aluminum. Ball bearing in the rotor head and real rod end bearings on the control links

Working rudder pedals, cyclic, gimbal head and teetering hub bar.

Use as an instructional aid to demonstrate:

  • Rotor Head function
  • Gimbal offset and trim spring function
  • Teetering Hub Bar
  • Cyclic Function
  • Thrust-line offset (“Engine” is vertically adjustable)
  • CG Location and effects

**This is NOT an RC model. It was not designed or intended to fly!

Provided with full assembly documentation! 2D & 3D pdf.

I am humbled that you let me take your baby for a spin.  The only problem I have now is that I want to fly it again! The VX-1 felt very predictable in its flight characteristics. The freedom felt surreal and the solidness of the VX-1 was notable.  The machine was very smooth.  I felt very secure in the seat, more so than in other open frames.  I find myself wishing I could fly her again! - Robert Lutz – Founder – Gyro Revolution (Long Island, NY)
