Default Gyro Rotor Wing Toy Kite

A Google search didn't turn up anything so let me appeal direct. Some
years ago I saw a vendor selling a little plastic toy gyrocopter at a
PRA Fly-In that flew much like a kite in the wind at the end of a
line. Over the next couple years I saw the same toy at EAA events such
as Lakeland and Oshkosh. Sadly I didn't buy one. I now have a
Grandson and I would love to find one of these wonderful toys for him.
Alas, I have searched all over the web and can find nothing and no one
who sells them. Can someone here point me toward a vendor who still
sells them? Santa would be very grateful.

I've got mine from WicksAircraft recently. Nice thing also to study some
tricks on teeter rotor. Particularly, unloading rotor is very spectacular
for much less price than in reality )

Cheers,

Alex

RagMan,

DO NOT purchase a plastic gyrokite! If you want one that really works and
is fun to fly, check out the following link:

Randy;
The GyroRaptor is very interesting but way on the expensive side
compared to the commercially prebuilt Gyro Kite. I have seen the Gyro
Kite and it flys perfectly. You don't have to build it and it cost
about 1/3 of the GyroRaptor kit that has to be built.

Thanks for taking the time to respond. Your info is appreciated.

I had a "Copterkite", lost two of them to mast bumping. My fault I flew them
in gusty conditions and a bad regular kite flying habit habit of pulling the
string to increase lift.
