Description

Autogyro with Infernal Robotocs bearing/hinges.
Takeoff at 1/6 throttle until rotor has spun up, then ½ throttle. Or use Separatrons for quick takeoff.

A mod aircraft called Kierva (IR). Built with 64 of the finest parts, its root part is mk3Cockpit.Shuttle.

Built in the SPH in KSP version 1.5.1.

For your convenience, Separatrons are provided for spinning up the rotor - simply set half throttle, stage, and off you go.
However, it is far more interesting to take off without the rocket boost:
Set throttle to 1/6 and let the rotor spin up. At low RPM the disc will have a lot of coning - wait until it flattens, then increase throttle gradually to ½. Take off shoud occur at less than 40m/s.
It flies quite well without SAS. Level speed is about 35m/s at 1/3 throttle.
