Hey all.  Working on a Gyro conversion using some left over bits from my Gyro bomber and an old Gyrocopter.  What do you think?

I like the idea but it's very asymetric which makes it look a bit odd. Could the pilot seat be lowered?

lol...I wondered this myself...as cool as it looks flying around...I have come up with two options:

 

1. very carefully

2. A long kickstand? ;)

I suppose it could, but it would require some time and skill with a hobby saw and some greenstuff...both of which I don't think I have the current skill to use effectively.

My first thought as well. How does it land? Perhaps the plastic part can be attached but upside down... just a thought they you would have clearance for landing gear to be fabricated...

Maybe it docks onto some sort of construction. :)

It could be piloted by a (probably slightly deranged) slayer who will fly it till it drops out of the sky by either being shot down or lack of fuel.  ;)

I thought this also. Perhaps in the high mountain passes, the machine docks into a ledge platform on the side of the hold;  the pilot dismounts level while the service crew work on the machine on a lower level/pit.
