According to the Russian forum it looks like he is planning to upgrade to a 35hp Polini PPG engine.

Looks great, but does it fly?
Engine looks kinda small, what's the hp?
Also willing to bet the rotor is very close to the tail and will probably hit with a mild flap.
Engine is a Simonini EVO...about 33 hp. And it does look as if the tail feathers might need to be lowered a bit.

Sindhi, it is not polite to post the same question in multiple threads. Your question will be seen if it is posted once. Note that the developer of this folding gyroplane had 33 HP, and has decided it is not enough. Your 5 HP engine will not do the job, no matter how many times you ask the question.

You are much kinder than me Paul

I was going to suggest he put the engine back on the motorcycle , go for a long ride , and breath some fresh air :)

Sindhi ... you have a computer .... study some basic aviation first , then try build something ... best wishes

Good news from Russia. Completed all flight tests of mini-gyroplane "Machaon"! With the new engine Polini 250 - it's just a song. After long dovodok all good. Feedback from our fearless test pilot who flies on his wonderful MTO-Sport, mini gyro flying super maneuverability superior to MTO, but the velocity is inferior. Gyroplane easily withstand hard landings.
Dry weight remains the same - 87 kg.
Propeller thrust of 100 kg. Climb 4 - 7 m/s. The maximum speed of 105 km/h, can be more but not comfortable to fly. Cruiser 75 km/

I'm not sure the gyro needs improvement,from what I've seen of it.
It looks like a competent flyer.
A bit more power would be nice.

Absolutely Excellent! With 36HP! What was Maximum takeoff weight (MTOW) for last (video) flight? What is reduction ratio? What kind of prerotator and what max. RRPM? What about a tail wheel? Looked like on a landing that spot was touched. Great , great effort!
Thank you. Georgi.

That's a very nice, small gyro.

It would be a sin to put my Rotax 503 and 23" Skywheels on it.

Together they are almost as heavy as that entire gyro.

Congratulations on a great accoumplishment, sir.

Cheers
Erik

Hi,

Congratulation. If you want to sell someone this gyro it would be strategic interessting to get the french ULM Certificate. With one EU Certificate, you can easily sell the Gyro, if it is under 120kg, in Germany. So the french certificate is easy to get and cheaper than the German Certificate.

Only a suggertion,..

Hope to hear more from this nice Gyro...

Georgi it looks as though it does have a tailwheel, but in a rather unusual, but logical position. At the bend in the tail just aft of the blue bracket.

At 9min 56 secs on the landing the tail wheel is in contact with the runway.

Nice little gyro. Congratulations to the designer.

His logo is a Butterfly, very apt.
