Nice!

I don't have a video, but on a calm, smooth evening flight when I get my RAF Sparrowhawk gyroplane trimmed just right I can weightshift fly it by leaning left/right and forward/back. It's fun, but cruise flight is not nearly as much fun as yanking the stick around in a rotorcraft!

Back in the late 1980's a gentleman from Rock Hill S.C. came up in his chromed out turbocharged Scorpion and gave some of the ultralight crowd a ride in it. It flew hands off. The gentleman ran a transmission shop and a week after he came up someone walked into his shop robbed him, shot and killed him. His wife eventually sold the Scorpion for not much money. Such a shame and it was a really nice machine
