For those of you looking for a new flying experience, the AC-10 Gyrocopter is just the ticket. This model will be especially appealing to those who fly both helicopters and fixed wing aircraft, as this model falls somewhere in between. With its very unique flight characteristics, the AC-10 is by far one of the most interesting models we have ever flown. Modeled as a stand off scale model, intended to look like many of the full scale home built gyro copters, the AC-10 has a host of details typically not seen in a foamie, plug and fly model.
The exterior airframe is of molded EPO foam, but remove the large canopy and you will find a nice laser cut plywood and aluminum frame which supports the motor, tail boom, landing gear and the CNC aluminum alloy rotor head. That nice ball bearing supported rotor head spins flat bottom carbon fiber rotor blades! Metal gear servos with nice alloy arms control the two axis rotor head. To get the weight balance correctly, the motor is mounted up front and drives a long ball bearing supported shaft to the aft mounted pusher propeller. Adding to the quality of the model is the two stage paint process the foam parts go through. They are color painted, decals applied, and then a clear coat is put over the entire part to seal the decals for better longevity.

Dieses Modell ist nicht fliegbar. Sobald man eine Kurve einleitet, wird es nicht mehr steuerbar. Beim 1. Flug ins Gebsch gings noch gut. Beim 2.Flug der selbe Effekt. Einleiten der 1. Kurve und es geht nach unten. Korrekturen und Hochziehen reagierten nicht. Crash und Totalzerstrung des Modells . Eine Frechheit von Hobbyking so etwas zu verkaufen.
Die ersten Kunden werden als Tester missbraucht. Finger weg vom Kauf dieses Modells.
In English: Dont buy this. Not able to fly Bad Construction. Hobbyking is selling here a not fully tested article.Modell ist nicht Fliegbar Dreht sich nach links in Messerflug nicht mehr Steuerbar 1 Mal gerettet beim 2 mal einschlag.
Soll anscheinend bei allen 2 Blatt Gyro so sein . Ich habe einen 3 Blatt von Hobby King geht super. Aber der eine Entteuschung
Wow what a nice machine. Out of the box the internals of the fuz are very well put together. The mast holes align perfectly with the precision cut plywood mast support bracket. The foam wheel spats and nosecone don't even remotely line up so I taped the nose on and only mounted the outside half of the wheel spat. Rotor head is robust and uncomplicated. Flying, well the rotors spin up in even the slightest breeze. I flew this in a moderate wind in bumpy conditions so it was hard to tell how stable it was but it had a rather savage left turn to it and the roll response was delayed then abrupt but I'll fly in smooth conditions to see if it wasn't the thermals giving me grief. The motor is very quiet allowing the rotor noise to be very dominant which I just love. Landing with a bit of power is a breeze as long as you are aware that to arrest your decent rate you use throttle not back elevator. That is the nature of gyros. This flies like the real thing so so some youtube research on how a gyro flies an you will be ok. Thank you Hobbyking for stocking this wonderful bird.
