If you look at the most recent 'Autogyro' post on youtube you'll find a fantastic model Dominator. Looks like it is direct control and I want one. For some reason I can't post the link.

I'd like to have seen the takeoff and landing, though.
Still it seems to fly acceptably.
I think I feel a project coming on.....
1/4 scale Bensen with a Merco .60 glow motor....

I'll tell ya that is pretty awsome. To see something my dad designed and built copied in rc form makes me very proud. I wish he had high speed internet so he could see it for himself. I may have to invite him over so he can see it.

MIke he can download it at night in his sleep and watch it in the morning.
I am trying to get this under production down here, it flies good and looks are not so bad either.

The designer even created a pilot´s manual so you don´t wreck many before getting proficient.
thanks

I watched it again and the detail is amazing. The pilot is even dressed like my old man in one of his videos. The builder even copied the company logo on the tail. I'd like to see it taxi to see if the suspension is real.

I asked the builder on youtube a few questions and he came he told the secret. Three (all axis) gyros. He also said he had failed many times before.

This is the response I recieved.

My name is Katayama.
I am honored to receive your message.
I am Japanese rc modeler.
I made mini-Dominator. It is homemade.
Genuine Dominator is a splendid machine.
I was attracted by the peculiar style and a rational design.
And I wanted to make a scale model of Dominator.
I was glad to succeed in flying it.
Thank you

Mike: They say "imitation is the sincerest form of flattery". This RC model is a very nice form of imitation...and I would think Ernie would be flattered by such! I think the Dominator is one classic design and I bet you are proud of him as your father.
