Good Day Sir.

We need a little more information. What kind of a gyro is this? Which engine is fitted to the gyro, is it an Arrow, Rotax or something else. Close up photos of the rotorhead and blade attachments will also be helpful. Being a single seater, this may be a hand made wooden 24 ft rotor.

With more information we can assist a bit better.

Thank you for your reply, but like I said, I do not much understand the specifications of a gyrocopter.
I get the picture of one's blog, he wrote his take gyro uses the same engine as my father had, the Rotax with 50 HP.
I suspect this blade is : Gyrocopter Blades From Vortech, these extruded aluminum, dimensions are 6" x 10'.
Is my suspicion correct ?
