GYROX in the workshop

Part of the upgrading work for GYROX will shortly involve changing the "wishbone" suspension (undercarriage) for a stronger version - this will enable the Maximum Take Off Weight (MTOW) to increase from 450kg to 500kg - a very useful additional 50 kg payload...a new main rotor will also be fitted at this time and will be then test flown to fine balance the blades relative to the aircraft (to reduce stick vibration to a minimum). All this work is being undertaken at the Rotorsport UK HQ "down the hill" from Long Mynd Gliding  club in Shropshire. This work will only take place after the CAA has deemed the MTOW upgrade as being an approved modification.
