I'm looking into forming a group around one of these in Titusville, FL and wondering what folks think - generally - about 4-seat gyrocopters such as the one in the picture? Are they powerful enough? Have gyrocopters matured enough, do they have a high enough payload? In my view, 240kg's useful payload is more like a 2+2 as opposed to an outright 4-seater, I'm just 84kg and so 2 of me up front and that leaves just 72kg in the rear i.e. two youngish teens at best. Anyway, would appreciate your thoughts, and anyone potentially interested in the group, please pm me.
