        Good news from Russia. Completed all flight tests of mini-gyroplane "Machaon"! With the new engine Polini 250 - it's just a song. After long dovodok all good. Feedback from our fearless test pilot who flies on his wonderful MTO-Sport, mini gyro flying super maneuverability superior to MTO, but the velocity is inferior. Gyroplane easily withstand hard landings.
        Dry weight remains the same - 87 kg.
        Propeller thrust of 100 kg. Climb 4 - 7 m/s. The maximum speed of 105 km/h, can be more but not comfortable to fly. Cruiser 75 km/

          I'm not sure the gyro needs improvement,from what I've seen of it.
          It looks like a competent flyer.
          A bit more power would be nice.

                Absolutely Excellent! With 36HP! What was Maximum takeoff weight (MTOW) for last (video) flight? What is reduction ratio? What kind of prerotator and what max. RRPM? What about a tail wheel? Looked like on a landing that spot was touched. Great , great effort!
                Thank you. Georgi.

                  That's a very nice, small gyro.

                  It would be a sin to put my Rotax 503 and 23" Skywheels on it.

                  Together they are almost as heavy as that entire gyro.

                  Congratulations on a great accoumplishment, sir.

                  Cheers

                    Hi,

                    Congratulation. If you want to sell someone this gyro it would be strategic interessting to get the french ULM Certificate. With one EU Certificate, you can easily sell the Gyro, if it is under 120kg, in Germany. So the french certificate is easy to get and cheaper than the German Certificate.

                    Only a suggertion,..

                    Hope to hear more from this nice Gyro...

                      Georgi it looks as though it does have a tailwheel, but in a rather unusual, but logical position. At the bend in the tail just aft of the blue bracket.

                      At 9min 56 secs on the landing the tail wheel is in contact with the runway.

                      Nice little gyro. Congratulations to the designer.

                      His logo is a Butterfly, very apt.

                        Hi,Leigh
                        If it is a tailwheel then it is not big enough. I still think that it is a rudder cable guide.

                          You could well be right there Georgi. But going by the landing it did seem to be the lowest point on the tail and closest to contact with the ground
