Magni M16 Gyrocopter for Sale - SOLD

Postby jtresfon » Mon Nov 02, 2015 10:15 am

I am the third owner of this Italian factory built gyro and have had 650 hours of trouble free flying from her over the last 5 years. However with me being 6ft7 and 118kg she’s always been a tight fit and I finally decided to change to a bigger flying machine. As much as it feels like I’m selling one of my kids, RDL is now on the market…
