The weather is getting great for gyro flying!

My Gyro is still on the market.

I flew it today for 30 mins. Still runs and flys great after sitting for a few months. 49 hours on the new 503.

Hi,
I am wanting to get into this hobby/sport. Would this be a good beginner's gyro? I am in Chattanooga, TN and still looking for an instructor. Thanks!
