S9 (Gyrocopter Duration) Introduction
Here are a couple of photos from the S9A event at the 2014 World Champs in Bulgaria.

The first photo is of Trip Barber with one of his models.  Trip took the Bronze medal in 2014!  You will notice that the rotor blades fold down and are stored internally during boost.  Rota-Roc or Rose-a-Roc type models are not used in FAI competition.  The model in the photo does not have blades that fold in chord or span.  This makes for a lighter and simpler model that can boost high and deploy reliably.

This photo is from the 2011 Team Selection in Ohio.  this is Katherine Humphrey with one of her excellent S9 models.  Katherine has been on several US teams as both a Junior and as a Senior.
