Gyrocopters


This video is not currently available. We apologize for any inconvenience.

It’s like a miniature helicopter, but the flying mechanism works differently. The gyrocopter is an oddity of the sky, beloved by a handful of hobbyists in Oregon, who gather monthly at the Aurora air strip.

First Broadcast: 1994
Producer: Eric Cain
