Tilting Rotor Steers New Autogiro

Unusual Craft Has No Wings and Vanes Fold So it Can Be Stored in a One-Car Garage One overhead handle in the cabin of the latest type of autogiro, now being successfully tested and flown at Willow Grove, Pa., enables the pilot to steer up, down, or sideways and to bank the craft simply by tilting the windmill-like rotor. The experimental model carries a horizontal rudder, but tests indicate that this may be superfluous.
