The all-aluminum, single seat tractor gyro shown above was built by a fellow in Central Texas. I don't remember his name, but I do know that he is now deceased.

The ship was powered by a half-VW Bug engine running direct drive which only developed around 35 hp and was not enough power to fly.

Thanks for the info Don

Thanks for the info Don

I'm amazed that he tried it with a 1/2 VW engine.

Still a nice looking gyro. I may be inspired.
