|Saints Row 2|
The Gyro Daddy is a small 2-seat helicopter. Its 2nd rotor is placed directly behind the cockpit and in front of the steering flaps. This setup eliminates the need for a long tail, just like with real autogyros.
Unlike its real-life counterparts, the Gyro Daddy does not have side body pieces that protect the pilot and prevent him from falling out.
The Gyro Daddy is easy to control, is fast, and good for darting between buildings and getting into small spaces. However, it has the slowest ascension speed of any helicopter, and loses altitude very quickly while heading forward, requiring frequent stops and ascentions, making it less than ideal for lengthy flights.
The Gyro Daddy can be obtained by entering the code #4976 (#GYRO) into the Cellphone, which adds it to the helipad Garage. This is not considered a cheat and has no effect on achievements. Because this vehicle is not considered an unlockable vehicle, it takes up a space in the 64-vehicle garage.
- When landing too fast, the Gyro Daddy tend to tilt backwards on impact with the ground, potentially getting the player into trouble.
- The Gyro Daddy has the fewest hitpoints of any vehicle in Saints Row 2, fewer than half as many as the next lowest, the Bee.
- The Gyro Daddy explodes with one hit from a missile or one McManus 2010 bullet.
