I'm learning on the Aero Balsa PT-15. It is a profile gyro and pretty rugged. I would order an extra blade hinge (don't ask me why).

Are you thinking electric or glow? FlyingBalsa makes several great trainer gyros. I'm currently building a one of their PT-25s and it's a great kiteasy build.

Flying Balsa and Aero Balsa sell the same giros.

Does anyone out there know if Arizona Autogyro is still in business. I live in Canada and have sent them several emails with no response. Their toll free number does not work in Canada.Thanks Donald

I've heard they're a p-i-a as far as communications. Don't know if they've gone down. Too bad if so.
