My First Gyroplane Helmet Cam Video
I was doing touch and go take offs and landings with a climb to 1500 feet above ground level for a near vertical descent. You can see my airspeed get very low for the vertical descent. Gyroplanes, like airplanes, require airspeed to land. So at about 300 feet above the runway, I put the nose down to get the airspeed needed to land.
