As a man who only has RC planes and little knowledge my opinion is that the Trixy is not the best looking gyro copter on the market?
Does it offer any technical advantages over its competitors?

I had a look the open side by side is quite unique, seems it uses a BMW 1200 engine? This must be good news considering the huge price for the Rotax, wonder what it's TBO will be?
