Little Nellie for G3

I'm not even sure if you can simulate an Autogyro in G3 (the one I've seen for Aerofly is faked apparently)

Little Nellie

Itís at the bottom of the page (you might need to refresh the page ... press F5)

Itís about 7000 polygons at the moment, which leaves me a few for Commander Bond.

We don't have support for autogyros right now, but that is a great idea.

Built and flew two autogyros (gyrocopters, here in the states) back in the '70s. Used VW 2080 cc bored and stroked engines, with dual port heads. Okrasa cranks (popular in the sand drag racers). Aluminum-finned jugs. A friend (who had to push the envelope, always) died performing sustained zero and negative G maneuvers in one. Blades slowed-down, when transitioned to positive Gs, flapped, taking tail and separating from the gimbal head. Never felt the need to fly them any more after that one.

They are fascinating aircraft, but unforgiving if you don't know their limitations.
