AutoGyro
Designer: frash
Designer Email: frash at RCGroups
Specs: 15.7g AUW
Material Required: 1-3mm Depron
Downloads available:
Notes: This is Frash's Aero Ace autogyro. It is similar to the US AMA indoor rubber FF autogiros. He has flown it indoors with flight times each over 8.5 minutes. Rotor area is 32 in2 and weight is 15.7 g. The shaft for the rotor is on the right side and the rotor spins at a modest rate clockwise as viewed from above. Fuselage is 2 layers of 3 mm Depron. Stub wing/motor mount is also 3 mm Depron. Rotor is 2 mm Depron. Tail is about 1 mm foam from a Hefty foam plate. This model requires a well charged battery, and further weight reduction would be desirable.

Autogyro V2
Designer: frash

Specs: 15.64g AUW
Material Required: 3mm Depron,1.5mm foam plate
Downloads available:
Notes: This small single rotor autogiro uses Aero Ace electronics, a 9-inch Al Foot "Twirl" style rotor, and weighs 15.64 g. Typical flight times per charge are 8-10 minutes. A few flights over 10 minutes and a few ROGs from a slick floor have been made by this series of autogiros. Both clockwise (CW) and CCW rotors have been used successfully. The twin tail is held on only with double stick tape and its center line is canted about 2 mm or 3 degrees to counteract the turn caused by greater lift from the advancing blades.

Fuselage is cruciform cross section for stiffness from 2 pieces of 3 mm Depron. The stab, fins, and “Twirl” style rotor is made from foam plate about 1.5 mm.

Flig

Specs: 11 inch wing span, 18.2g AUW
Material Required: 1.80mm Hefty Foam Plates, 1.75mm foam tail

Notes: Neurotex has created an excellent adaptation of a flying wing! The flyingwing (flig) is a quick flat build all done with the Hefty Extra Strong & Deep
26cm foam plates that flys great! Thanks Neurotex!

Flying Cube
Designer: micro_builder
Designer Email: micro_builder at RCGroups
Specs: 144sq.in. of wing area and only 16g AUW
Material Required: 1/16th balsa and tissue paper
Downloads available:
Notes: Authors Notes: The tissue is standard stuff from Target. You can change the flight characteristics quite a bit by playing with the thrust angles and CG location. I found you can give the motors a lot of down thrust (props facing towards the back and down), and put the CG pretty far forward. on the flipside, you can use less down thrust and move the CG back.

Starship Enterprise
Designer: Robster
Designer Email: Robster at RCGroups
Specs: 17g AUW
Material Required: 3mm Cellfoam88 and .05" Durobatics,AA Jet Gear
Downloads available:
Notes: Robster has created is version of the AA powered Starship Enterprise. Trimming was done for a slight high alpha flight by bending some up elevator.

CG is right at the center of the disk. The tail dihedral is pretty vital to the design also. Too much and the tail will drag into unmaintainable high alpha, too little and it will dive. Warp 9 Mr Scot!
