Last week the Arrow-Copter AC-10 prototype made its first flight in Austria. This gyro will eventually feature an enclosed cabin and constant-speed prop reaching 117 knots in tests. Powered by a Rotax 912, 500-pound useful load allows two passengers and 17 gallons of fuel, yielding a 300-nautical-mile range.

Good fun those gyros.... but is it the best of both worlds or the worst of both worlds?

Don't know what it costs, but the more alternative we can get out there hopefully the prices will come down on all these overpriced factory LSA that are out there now.
