I have some pics of ZU-RGO and ZU-RGP before the blue makeover.
Privileged to have flown them both.
Awesome machines!

Hi Crazydoc

This is a very complex field and ultimately, each Gyro finds its perfect owner just as cars do. Some of us love our Land Rovers, Some our Beemers and some our Merc's (and the odd dingbat loves SAAB). So be it.

Decide what you intend to do with the Gyro, why you want to do it and then choose the machine best suited to your most regular requirement ... and just go fly!

There is a lot said about the Arrowcopter at viewtopic.php?f=20&t=21895&p=210921&hilit=arrow#p210869

I personally have yet to find a Gyroplane that tops this machine. Quite simply therefore at the moment, on a scale of 1 to 10, The Arrowcopter is still a 10.

Talking about the jammer, i would like to recommend the RF Signal Jammer ,this was the good device to use in the daily life,you can have a look at
