Just curious,

How many of the side-by-side Barnett BRC-540 Coupe gyroplanes were built?

I know that original Blue/Green/Yellow BRC-540 N35JB of Jerrie Barnett's prototype was sold, rebuilt after an off airport landing and tip over, and then shipped to the Philippines along with the Cub Yellow BRC-540 N119JR from Colorado.

There's the Grey Piasecki BRC-540 N540CX that was used for UAV control testing.

Then there's the Red BRC-540 that was built by Kenny McFarland N159KM that looks like it has SportCopter rotor head and blades.

I do not know how many were made but they sure are a pleasure to fly.

I have a personal interest in these crafts. I am looking to build a tube frame 2 place. Can you help guide me to some plans or other drawings? I particularly like the side by side configuration. thanks!
