The gyrocopter backpack is a flight-providing artifact that consumes oil and is worn on the back. Once activated and booted up, the player begins to fly if they are above ground. The gyrocopter backpack has 2% to fall during normal movement, and a 20% chance to fall while swooping,[1] which is better than the Mechanical wings.pngmechanical wings or a low-level Wings mutation. The gyrocopter backpack is surpassed in artifact flight capabilities only by the higher-tier Antigravity boots.pnganti-gravity boots.

Because the gyrocopter backpack holds 128 drams of liquid, this item can weigh up to 42#.

Despite the fact that it is powered only by Oil.pngoil, it can also be used to safely store other liquids, including Lava.pnglava and Acid.pngacid.
