Chinese MacGyver Proves the A-Team was Realistic

(except for firearms accuracy)


This fellow made a gyrocopterhelicopter out of scrap metal and a lawnmower engine!

These are puportedly the same guy and same machine but the two vids show vehicles that appear to be operating on different principles. It may be that the autogyro was modified at some point to be a full helicopter which would make sense if the guy was learning as he went. Autigyros are rather more simple and helicopters are such an abomination against physics that the inventor may have wanted to get one half of the whirlly bits right before trying for the full Sikorskey.

Of course, they may  also be unrelated machines.
