Description[ | ]

The Gyrocopter is a type of vehicle in 7 Days to Die. The radial menu may be accessed by holding <E> over the vehicle.

The Gyrocopter itself is unlocked by default but you have to either get the schematics for the Gyrocopter Chassis and Gyrocopter Accessories or get to Level 5 in Grease Monkey.

The Gyrocopter is an end-game goal for some players, whilst fun to use and technically the fastest vehicle available (able to reach 15 blocks/s or 18 block/s with a supercharger) it can have limited practical purpose as most situations where one would be useful to use (such as missions to very dangerous locations) are also situations you don't want to risk losing it. That being said with careful use it can be an incredible asset allowing one to stay out till sundown even far from home and make the trip back home at night as very few zombies can harm a gyrocopter mid-flight. It can theoretically be used to land on the top of large POI's and skip straight to their main loot, but this is not recommended as most large POI's have a plethora of high-end enemies waiting on their roofs and the player will immediately be attacked by them if they land on it.

Operation / Controls[ | ]

The Gyrocopter handles similarly to an airplane. It requires forward thrust to stay airborne and cannot hover in place. The controls require a bit of practice to master and it is recommended that new players get the feel for it before going out with it.
A - Yaw (rotation) left (or banked turn left if in banked turn mode)
D - Yaw (rotation) right (or banked turn right if in banked turn mode)
W - Throttle (move forward)
S - Brake (stop) / Reverse
C - Pitch nose down
SPACEBAR - Pitch nose up, while on ground works as brakes. So you can take off shorter way. (Could be better for more keyconfig in controls...)
E - Mount/Dismount.
Hold E to bring up the radial menu. Radial menu actions include: Drive, Access info panel, Access storage, Refuel, Repair, Honk horn, Lock/Unlock, Set Pincode and the option 'Take' which puts vehicle back in inventory.
X - Honk horn
Left Mouse Button - Toggle between Yaw versus Banked Turn modes
Shift - Turbo
