farringtontwinstar

Farrington has developed an amateur-built kit gyrocopter with some features of the Umbaugh U-18 known as the Farrington "Twinstar". This has an open fibreglass cockpit shell, a large twin-fin tail unit and a main rotor mounted on a tubular steel pylon. It is powered by a 110kW Lycoming 0-320 and the first prototype first flew in 1991.
