Benson B8 all aluminum gyro glider. It can be upgraded to a B8M with addition of a motor such as a Rotax, VW, Subaru etc. in great shape all aluminum including rotor blades which were made in 1985. NO motor included, if you want to tow this to get airborne you need no license. To add motor I will include whatever drawings to do that I have. Again no motor included but can easily be added for low cost plus engine. You will need to ship or come by and trailer it. It is 5 ft wide and 7 ft height. Without rotor blades, about 15 ft long.
In excellent shape and has seat 10 gallon tank installed for a motor already. GPS speed meter included with battery box (AA batteries) or power from motor if upgraded. I may have a few parts like pre rotor cable and gear to include for upgrading. Again this is the kite license free version but can be upgraded by you if you wanted. Great trainer no license needed or nice motorized flyer with upgrades.
