The SportCopter II has unbelievable performance and power. We do not condone any flying like this, but it shows the aerobatic maneuver capability that most other 2 place gyroplanes do not have the performance we do. Jim thought you guys might like to see this. We felt this deserved it's own thread and not buried deep into our older thread!

I applaud Jim for his cojones. Mine aren't anywhere near that big.

Personally there was never a doubt in my mind of what the SCII could do.
Jim had a vision of what kind of aircraft he wanted and made it his goal to bring it to reality.
Jim always set that bar of standards very high....
I am glad to see the SCII in production and orders being filled.
Congratulations to Jim and the team at Sportcopter.
I personally flew the early version of th SCII it's an unbelievable well engineered awesome aircraft.
The new version of the SCII, well the picture says it all.
Great job guys.

That's a very cool image. If it wasn't for my smart phone (which makes watches and paper calenders obsolete) I'd say it needed to be on some calender.
