In the above video Jim states he can loop and roll the M2. Has this ever been done in the M2 or any Sportscopter?

Mak , Jim is probably the most talented gyro pilot out there (given the talent on this page that is saying something), my opinion. He has been involved and flying gyros since he was a child flying with his Dad. Even with this said, Jim will tell you he practiced and worked up to all the Acro he did / does. I wouldn’t try any of it. It takes more precision than fixed wing Acro. In a fixed wing if you fall out of a loop you can recover. I can’t say with certainty that would be the case with a gyro.

I agree with Tyger. You have one chance to get it right. I have looped a lot of airplanes. I own a Sport Copter Vortex with 618, and have no intention to loop it. Except in my dreams. However, it does tear the heck out of the sky and is very fun to fly.
