WHAT IS A GYROCOPTER
Gyrocopters and helicopters are very charming and interesting rotorcraft, furthermore they are capable of different and specific manoeuvring and uses if compared with fix wing aircrafts. Both, gyro and helicopter, receive the lift they need for flying from their rotating wing. This common characteristic [the rotor] makes it difficult for many people to see the difference between them being their appearance pretty similar for the laity. This confusion between the two kinds of rotorcrafts has been enhanced by the reduced spread of gyroplanes compared to helicopters.
In gyrocopters there is no power transmission to the rotor during flight, it is easy to see this: gyrocopters do not have anti-torque devices as tail rotor to balance main power-driven rotor torque. Lift is given by autorotation granted by the air flowing up through the blades. This condition is allowed by the degree of liberty of movement of the rotor head – and so of the rotor disc – along lateral axis; talking of our ORION, this excursion is from 0° (horizontally) to 18° towards the rear of the gyrocoper. This laying allows the correct passing through of the airflow in all allowed flight condition within gyrocopter's flight envelope.
The TRAINER M-16 is one of the best selling gyro trainers and is a real double seater intended for flight training and leisure flights. The M-16 is practical, basic, elegant and has the same stability and safety characteristics as our ORION. Due to its compact structure and light weight it is an extremely manoeuvrable, easy to fly and enjoyable gyro that will provide great satisfaction. Despite its small size, the SPARTAN ensures excellent performance even in turbulet conditions, allowing untroubled and safe piloting.
The neat and large instrument panel features altimeter and airspeed indicator as well as engine rev. counter, cylinder head temp., hour meter, rotor rev. counter, rotor brake and battery recharge warning lights. Electric trim and its related end-of-stroke indicator is available as option.
The M-16 is also available in agriculture version. The first commercial ag-gyrp produced by MAGNI. Equipped with 4 atomizers, hyd. pump, 120 ltr. chemical tank and ag-GPS. The right solution for ULV applications. Engine: Rotax 914 turbocharged, 2.000 hrs. TBO!
