Description[edit | edit source]

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) 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.

Crafting[edit | edit source]

The Gyrocopter is crafted in the Workbench using 3 Wheels, a Gyrocopter Chassis, Gyrocopter Accessories, an Engine and a Lead Car Battery.
