The Sport Copter II gyroplane
This video features the Sport Copter II, a two-place, enclosed cockpit gyroplane. The Sport Copter II's gross weight places it above the maximum allowed takeoff weight allowed for light-sport aircraft. The manufacturer's website suggests that the company intends to develop an "LSA version" of the Sport Copter II whenever the FAA allows factory-built SLSA gyroplanes.
The company produces the single-place Vortex and Vortex 912 models, both of which qualify as light-sport aircraft.
