    Does this vehicle need a few hundred meters of road to take off?
    Master of testing for a better Arma and well, for science.
    Teach the AI how to drive. Teach AI Tank drivers to turn their front towards the enemy. Give us supression effects for AI . Make AI ragdoll if they get hit. Give us proper animations for throwing Frags. Give us a proper wounding system. Fix the armored vests so that they don´t protect the whole torso. More Civilian assets. Females. Weapon resting. Give us inertia influenced movement depending on the Weapon you have.

    It depends, most Autogyros can spin up the unpowered rotors to operating speed with a PTO device. That combined with a nice strong head wind can reduce the T/O run to almost nothing. If they start without powering up the rotors they need up to 200m depending on the aircraft type and weather conditions. They will never allow this to take off from the public road though, spinning rotors in a puplic place - yikes!

    A few years ago a game keeper had an issue with an autogyro being used to monitor fox hunting as it was flying low and spooking horses. He was killed when he walked into the rear prop while going to confront the pilot. I saw this same aircraft a month earlier over the Yorkshire Wolds flying at 150 feet while I was out walking. So they can be a severe hazard to bystanders.

    I saw this video on the BBC website and was immediately reminded of a point brought up in this thread regarding the wing area required to lift a man etc.

    Look at the wing span and the amount of flex in this wing. And this guy is not exactly a big lad. And not to mention the effort hes having to provide to get the speed to fly.

    And here's the BBC Blog about it all:

    All rather interesting stuff, but it does nicely highlight the issue of mass vs wing area vs power discussed earlier.

    I don't imagine that this will come as a suprise to most of you but Jarno Smeets "The Flying Dutchman" has admitted it was a hoax and that he is in fact an animation artist.

    EDIT: I also realise that this is a couple of months old now, but was for some reason featured in BBCs video list.
