Whatever happened to LeonGyro? I have not heard of any progress with any of the kits, I think there is a few flying in France.

Did anyone in the States get a Kit?

He disappeared from forums right after one of his gyros (red side-by-side) crashed and burned in France in Aug.,2015. Pilot Patrick Lafforgue got serious injuries.
Rumours were that it had mechanical failure in rotor control on a landing approach.

Thanks Alex
I heard about the side-by-side having an accident. That's a shame, I hope that the pilot made a good recovery.

The tandem looked good and reasonable price for the package.
