Neat Autogyro Conversion

I had a Pico Slow Stick and some time ago the wing folded up when I tried to fly it to aggressively. I saw this conversion kit for the Slow Stick and ordered it. When I came in it was obvious it was designed for the larger Slow Stick not the Pico. Well with nothing to loose I cut the base plate to fit and made sure the C of G was where it should be slightly nose down on the rotors. I had nothing to loose as I was not going to buy the bigger Slow Stick. Well I test flew it today and what a hoot. I flys easily and has no problem with loops and rolls. In a slight breeze it lands vertical with a little throttle and up elevator. In fact just before it touched down I added a bit of throttle and it just hovered in position. Can't wait to take it out to the field.
