Default Direct drive "outrunner" electric prerotator for Autogyros

Hi Gang, Has anyone actually tried using an outrunner or other type electric motor as a rotor bearing/direct-drive prerotator ?? I would like to hear the results of your experiments.....suggestions have been made in RC Groups Auto Gyro forum. This could be a great item for many autogyros...... Thanx for sharing your results !!! Charlie Anderson

Charlie,
Mickey has been using a pre-rotater for several years. I have 2 on my smaller Auto-gyro's.

Hi Jim, I am referring to a direct drive system, where the outrunner/other electric motor is the rotor bearing and prerotator all in one . The idea is to simplify construction, and eliminate any clutch or gear mechanism.....Charlie Anderson
