Here's a pre-rotation and taxi test of a tractor gyroplane Juanito C-30 that is loosely based on the Cierva C30 at Valladolid Aerodrome in Spain. The engine appears to be a Continental O-200 and not a Subaru as mentioned in the description.

With a little bit of searching, I have found out that gyroplane is being built under the Asociacion Juan de la Cierva Codorniu. The president of the association is Laura de la Cierva, the great-grandaughter of Juan de la Cierva and is the senorita bonita in the photos and video.

I certainly would like to see the completion and flight of this gyroplane project.
