A friend of mine has a new 110hp Rotec radial he is wanting to sell and I am considering it for my quest in building an autogyro. I have been searching for something that replicates the looks of the old Pitcairn type autogryros. The only one I can seem to find is the Little Wing Autogyro. I did find another named the Pitbull but seemed to read more bad than good about it so that one is not on the list of acceptible on my list.
Anyone know of anything else out there that looks 'retro'? I guess I just loved the golden age type aircraft and since I will never be able to afford an original I may try my hand at a reproduction.
I also have a Subaru engine that I could use. It is a Formula Power conversion that is still installed in a damaged Murphy Rebel. I think the radial would be a better look though. It may be a little heavy though since it is comparable to an O-320 in weight and HP. Probably best to just sell it and invest the funds in a flying machine.
