Thatís awesome! And probably an easier build than an original - sometimes I think upscales are as much about my lousy eyesight as they are about the wow factor

Unhappy

I remember flying my Gyroc in the late 60's - was great with the small engine but of course I had to try to send it way up there. Put a C engine in it and tore the wings off it.

That D-powered Gyroc is Gynormous ...

Zooming in on the picture, it looks like it might have replaceable nose cone tips? Is that the case? Seems like a good idea!

Cool gyroc

That is sick. Gyroc is on my top 25 list of best kits. I have three in my collection.
