To me. The most famous Gyro is the one I happen to be flying at that time.

stopped caring at 1000
Seriously?

Seriously?

This is like asking, "Name three famous forensic accountants."
If any gyro was truly famous, then I wouldn't always be hearing "what's a gyroplane?" every time I mention mine, I wouldn't have to explain what a gyro is when I donate a ride to a charity auction, I wouldn't have ATC always asking "say again type" after I call in, etc., etc.

Anybody remember the Dodgeball movie? There was a publication in it called something like "Obscure Sports Quarterly", and I think I know another activity that would qualify ...

My Gyro-1 The Best!!!!!!!!!!!!!

My Gyro-1 The Best!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I am a Bensen gyro fan from the get go!
My, "as close as it gets to a B-8M" is my favorite gyro, bar none. But all auto gyros are the coolest type of flying machine as far as I am concerned.
