Odier & Bessiere Clino-giro



French engineers Odier and Bessiere flew their combination airplane and autogyro, dubbed the “Clino-giro”, in 1931, at Guyancourt. The foundation of the craft is a revamped Caudron C-193 with a rotor smaller and stiffer than normal for an autogyro attached. Th engineers claimed that the craft had a climb angle three times that of an ordinary airplane and a radius of action much better than that of a conventional autogyro.
