Short field take off with a gyroplane. Field length not more than two hundred meters… but used a powerful hand prerototor ###
With two o.b. I needed to go once up and down.
This video if I remember correct is 28 years old.

Giorgos, this is a great demonstration of bringing large blades up to speed without a prerotator. Did you come as close to the end of the runway as it looked?

Those appear to be extruded blades, but with a Skywheels-shaped hub. What blades were used?

Cool video, but your passenger apparently fell out at about 1:05 into the flight! ;)
Sorry Paul for the very bad joke but, the last time I saw him was here...:drama::drama:
