Bensen B-6 Gyroglider

 

bensen_b-8w


Bensen's range of do-it-yourself helicopters and autogyros stem from the B-5 Gyro-Glider of 1954, which was a single-seat rotor-kite towed into the air at around 30km/h and obtained its lift by the flow of air over its autorotating rotor. From the B-5 factory-built prototype, Bensen evolved the B-6 and B-7.

 

The B-6 Gyro-Glider could be built at home from household pipe, plywood and steel strip for about £30 in 1955.

In still air, it lands in 10-15 ft. at 7 m.p.h.
