    Wow! I can´t believe, that you really did it!!!!!!

    Great! But it looks absolutely dangerous ..... nothing for me!

    Im always full of fear when I have to fly normal ...... never I could step in a "toy" like this!

    Let´s have a cup of coffee the next days, I will see the tiger in your eyes!!!!!!

    Greetings,

    Petra

    One is , it´s a very smooth flight. Almost no turbulences. Advantage over the helicopter is, the Gyro can´t fall down like a stone, because the rotor is not driven by the engine.
