Spin Doctor Autogyro


Spin Doctor is a simple to build Electric CL Autogyro with a rotor diameter of 18 inches available from Dens Model Supplies….it is not suitable for a complete beginner……but if you have mastered straight and level CL flight and already built a balsa model or two you will be fine. Spin Doctor can be flown with a timer or better still a small Rx…..then very slow flying speeds at high attack angles can be achieved by careful use of throttle control……..either way you are guaranteed to have some fun!
