A gyroplane also known as autogiro, gyrocopter, or rotaplane, is a type of rotorcraft that uses an unpowered rotor in autorotation to develop lift and an engine-powered propeller, similar to that of a fixed-wing aircraft, to provide thrust. While similar to a helicopter rotor in appearance, the autogyro's rotor must have air flowing through the rotor disc to generate rotation. Invented by the Spanish engineer Juan de la Cierva to create an aircraft that could fly safely at slow speeds, the autogyro was first flown on 9 January 1923, at Cuatro Vientos Airfield in Madrid.
This set is a hybrid proposal. Two electric propellers have been added in order to solve common gyroplane drawbacks.

Thanks for the comments, Cakery. Unfortunately I'm unable to animate the connecting rod as the combined rotational mouvement with the linear one is too complex for me and I've no knowledge (nor time) enough about Nodes programming.
