Autogyro

4,189 ZWLenning  8 months ago

i dont know how this is the most fun thing I have ever made

say hello to my new buddy autogyro!

autogyro loves speeds below 120mph to twist and spin, and has a severe allergy to the ground.... For this reason, it is recommended to coax autogyro into becoming a helicopter and maintain this until autogyro decides to settle onto said ground. autogyro has an unusually long takeoff run which can make autogyro difficult to get up, but once up you are likely to find that autogyro has an amazing thrust/weight ratio. for just one click of the download button, you too can have your own friendly autogyro, for a system cost of only 19 parts! mobile version not included

in all seriousness I have quite a few big builds on the go, and it is quite refreshing to throw something like this together and start lobbing it around the sky. I haven't given up on 'good' builds (if you can even call them... good), I am working on them and am kinda saving them up to release them at regular intervals, which should cover any absence I have from building in the future. i know i know people have built many of these already when 1.8 came out in like 2018 dont judge

anyway have fun with autogyro!

    @An2k I actually think it autorotates too well - I try to land and will float the length of the runway until I actually manage to land... In the sea
