Hi Juergen

Thanks ever so much for the info and pics of the Kay 331 gyro.

With just a few modifications such as a modern engine and a 2 blade rotor system this gyro would be a thrill and a pleasure to fly------TODAY !!

It would be interesting if sufficiently detailed plans from some source could be obtained to produce this gyro with modern changes.

No found any plans yet Tony but this lnk to a search should keep you busy for a while.
We have 2 ears, 2 eyes and 1 mouth. Its best to use them in that ratio.
