Here comes another weekly update to unseat you from watching My Little Pony on Youtube.
Yo dawg, I heard you like autogyros, so we sketched two of those at once, so you can bring democracy while you fly!
This was weekly RR newsfeed, see you soon another weekend. Our places:

Good stuff. Keep going. Don't stop. Believe in what you are doing.
What's the benefit of this gyro on usual helicopter?
While it might compare better to a plane, I'll have a go at it:
It's REALLY cheap, small and while it requires a bit of take-off distance, it's still far less than a plane and seems to be very stable for the most part.
However, it doesn't hover; The rotor is unpowered and functions via autorotation.
Essentially, I'm guessing it'd be something of a poor man's A-10. Though, not as inefficient as that would imply.
Its exceptionally COIN design though. Cheap an efficient against insurgents.
It looks like a retarded roflcopter on drugs.
I already consider this as an advantage, seriously.
