You can still find plans for the 3drv they show up on ebay. I see nothing bad about it.

Welcome, George! I think one reason you haven't seen a lot of Monte Hoskin's 3D-RV is that it is a plans built machine. The gyro community has got lazy over the years and doesn't want to actually scratch built.
Also, another scratch built machine, the GyroBee, has become so popular with its free downloadable plans, that many don't look any further and satisfies another trait of the community, cheap! Plus there is one kit provider, Star Bee Gyros, that supplies kits, parts and support for the 'Bee. There is no support for the 3D-RV.
Other than that, the 3D-RV appears to be a good design. I happened to have a set of the plans myself.

Welcome! Let me warn you....gyro flying is addictive and you WILL be hooked!
Please, Please, Please.....training is a must! No short cuts! Gyros are fun safe and very nimble but they do have some characteristics that must be "trained" into you. Doesn't matter how much stick time you have in other types of AC.
Have fun and fly saafe!

I second that Berry, I have found it be more fun than I thought, due to training. Now I just practice the moves over and over .......each time I do just a little than before to get comfortable with it.
