It must be very clear that even if gyroplanes
can’t stall as aircrafts’ fixed wings do on the other side it is also impossible to keep stationary hovering conditions for more than a few
gyroplane’s flight envelope rotor rpm will self-stabilize on a value depending on the combined effect of
load, type of manoeuvring and weather condition, this makes piloting very easy!
Considering again a specific range of gyroplanes, Magni’s one, the only power transmission system is the
prerotator. This system is meant and needed just to spin-up the rotor to a minimum number of rpm so to allow take-off, it is then disengaged and no more used during the flight.
It is possible to deduce that
gyroplanes, even if capable of operating in narrow spaces, can’t take-off or land vertically as helicopters do.. After prerotation has been disengaged gyroplanes need a short take-off roll to get some
acceleration. Always considering a specific range of gyroplanes,
Magni’s one, it is possible to quantify the needed space in a range that goes from 40 to 80 m for take-off and
approx. 2-5 m for landing.
