Strategy

Rocket Barrage does tons of damage when an opponent is isolated.

Gyro has great waveclear early on. Push out waves from level 5 onwards and start farming nearby camps.

Ask your teammates to stack for you as you can clear stacks easily once you max out Flak Cannon.

'Hit count' objects like Supernova can be removed with ease by attacking them and flakking other heroes down.

Make sure to get Aghanims Scepter as soon as possible as it improves farming speed and DPS in fights.

Side Gunner can attack even when Gyrocopter is stunned and all attack modifiers work as well.

In teamfights, focus on hitting most of the opponents with Flak Cannon and Call Down.

If in desperate position, consider purchasing Divine Rapier as last resort. Works well with Flak Cannon.

Counter Strategy

Rocket Barrage does a lot of damage. Keep distance from Gyrocopter or share damage with allied units.

Help destroying Homing Missile that is aimed at your team mate.

Gyrocopter farms quickly with Flak Cannon. Smoke on him, place deep wards and block off camps with sentries.

Gyrocopter does a lot of magical damage and joins fights early. Magic resistance items are great.

Crimson Guard, Heaven's Halberd and armor items are great against Gyrocopter's Flak Cannon.

It is easy to reflect Homing Missile back to Gyrocopter with Lotus Orb.

    Lore

    After serving through a lifetime of wars, upheaval, riots, and revolutions, the brass figured Aurel had seen enough. But in addition to a few trinkets and his considerable pension, the erstwhile engineer left with something far more interesting: a long-forgotten, incomplete schematic for a Gyrocopter, the world's first manned, non-magical flying device. Retiring to the tropical obscurity of the Ash Archipelago with little else but time and money, he set to work building the device. As the years wore on and the remains of failed prototypes began to pile up, he began to wonder if mechanical flight was even possible. A decade and a day after his retirement, on a sunny afternoon with a southerly breeze, Aurel sat in his latest attempt bristling with indignation and expectant failure. With a grunt of effort he pulled the ignition cord and covered his head, waiting for the inevitable explosion. However to his great surprise he began to lift and, following a few panicked adjustments, stabilize. Within an hour, he was ducking and weaving with the breeze, level with the gulls, and Aurel found himself filled with the breathless wonder of flight. As dusk settled in he set a course back to his workshop, but no sooner had he turned his craft when a cannonball tore through his tailfin. Disentangling himself from the wreckage, he swam toward the nearest piece of land in sight, and cursed to see the ship responsible for the cannonball collecting the debris. Days later, when Aurel returned to his workshop, he set to work on yet another gyrocopter, this one capable of carrying a much heavier, more dangerous payload.
