This autogyro by the Englishman Kay was the first practical application of collective pitch control. It had a 75hp Pobjoy engine

I understand that the aircraft is now at east fortune.Davy Kay was quite a character at Scone being particulary adept with the fruit machine in the bar making it pay out jackpots.

Davy Kay was chief engineer at Scone airfield I think with Airwork.The aircrft was at one time stored at Grangemouth which was a gliding school.He flew the rotoplane to scone to work on it in 1952,but I never saw it there.It is now in Glasgow transport museum.
