The Taifun – two place, side by side, is top-of-the-line gyroplane model.
This new model has the most horsepower of any gyrocopter we have ever sold; 144 horsepower with turbocharging, so it delivers the same power at altitude as it does at sea level.
The new fuel injected Rotax aircraft engine is the basis for the power plant. To that, we add the turbocharger developed in our own factory, to achieve this competition-beating performance.
But some things, that set this gyrocopter apart from the rest – the dual tail booms provide a much more stable support for the horizontal and vertical stabilizers. (Compare this to the single pipe design of the competition.)
Also the horizontal stabilizer is placed directly in line with the thrust of the prop. This enhances the performance of the stabilizer, accounting for how stable this aircraft is in all attitudes.
