Are you ready for a flying experience like no other? You better be, because the Auto-G is here!
Durafly® ™ has raised the bar once again with the Auto-G gyrocopter. The first and only plug and fly autogyro on the market today! Keeping with tradition, the Auto-G is a breeze to assemble, looks amazing and flies just as well. Exactly what you expect from a Durafly® ™ model.
Autogyros are very unique aircraft utilizing an unpowered free-spinning main rotor to develop lift, and a powered propeller to provide thrust. This makes them quite different from traditional fixed wing aircraft. The Auto-G offers you this very interesting design in an easy and simple to use plug and fly model.
For those of you looking for a new flying experience, the Auto-G 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 Auto-G is by far one of the most interesting models we have ever flown. In addition to its super slow flight and auto-rotation capability, it can even perform aerobatics such as stall turns and loops!
The Auto-G fuselage and tail are constructed from ultra durable EPO foam, while the tail boom is made from lightweight carbon fiber. This model is super easy to assemble with its pre-installed electronics, bolt on horizontal stab, pre-fitted servo linkages and push-in landing gear. The only part on this model that requires gluing is the vertical stabilizer. This means you can have your Auto-G in the air in as little as 15 minutes!

Great flyer ,I did upgrade mine with the pre rotator motor to spin up the main rotor before take off and now makes take offs a breeze,That was the only fault I had with it before was hard to take off on a windless day but all i can say now is brilliant
Very fun to fly but nevertheless his style of flight seems to be a bit unstable, tried to stabilize it with a multiwii pro. Now it's perfect !
But don't forget to buy the rotor speed up motor et the steerable rear wheel. It is very hard to take off without these ;)
Ich Liebe dieses Modell. Der Aufbau dauerte ca 15min, danach ist der Gyrocopter flugfertig. Lediglich das Seitenruder wird geklebt (Epoxy verwenden). Ruderausschlag auf allen Rudern habe ich bei 100pcnt, sonst ist der Gyrocopter zu trge in der Luft. Der Hauptrotor muss noch ausgewuchtet werden (vibriert ein wenig).
Ein Modell das richtig Spa macht und mal was ganz anderes am Himmel ist. Bodenstarts sind schwer, ich mach nur Handstarts.
Plane looks really nice. I made a mistake buying this one because I wanted V2, but then I upgraded it myselve.....
I recently received my Auto-G and now have a few flights on it. A few things became apparent very quickly, the internal area was poorly organized out of the box and while the battery could be jammed in, I took the time to Velcro all the electronics down. The first flight went not so well for two reasons. I have bad eyes, and this is hard to see. I highly recommend changing the colors on the left and right side. That first flight crash caused the two cheap rotor servos to strip and I replaced them with metal gear servos. It is worth noting that there are a number of good features. While the motor looks very cheap, it has worked very well so far. Also, it hit hard on the first flight but the body took almost no damage and I only lost one rotor blade. It is not hard to hand launch in the wind but the lack of a tail wheel severely hampered my ability to take off from the ground. If you are comfortable with hand launches or have a helper, this autogyro is much lighter than the V2. Cheers.
Hab endlich ne Menge Spass mit dem Flieger... Ihr muest auf den Schwerpunkt achten der liegt fast am Prob und ist nur mit ner Menge Zusatzgewicht Vorne zu erreichen aber dann fliegt das Ding um Welten besser...als Ersatz fuer den 3 Blatt Prob der sehr bruechig ist kann man einen 10*8 GWS oder Slow Fly Prob nehmen. Echt super Teil sonst.....Achtung ohne Prerotator ist starten fast unmoeglich aber mit kein Problem.
Also umrsten fr 12 Euro oder am besten gleich den G2 fr 10 Euro mehr kaufen!!!

also auf jeden Fall Nachrsten oder direkt den G2 bestellen...
Es muy divertido. Pero es difcil en el despegue.
It is fun. But it's hard on takeoff.
Fantastic 4 star item, I use it all the time in all places and electronics. Nice n shiny finish, good covering.
I upgraded mine with the g2 prerotator and tail wheel. Love it!
