just looked at the airgyro AG915. Very impressive. Copied the Xenon and improved the things that needed improving. If it flies well and has a nice stick feel I would think it one of the best options available. I really prefer a SxS.
My Xenon is turbocharged and I just put the larger pistons in it bumping it from 120 to about 140 Hp. Only 1 flight since the upgrade so no report yet. I think the 915is is the way to go today, or some guys in Europe are doing the crank weld and larger pistons on a 915is which would be about the best you could do. My airport is at 7,500 in Colorado.
The Magni and Autogyro models fly similarly which is to say very stable, but it takes tons of force to hold and move the stick. I find them exhausting to fly. The Xenon is like flying a helicopter, I mostly just think about a turn and apply a bit of pressure. Straight and level it’s just my thumb and forefinger on the stick.
I flew an ELA in Europe and liked it reasonably well.
If I were buying today I definitely would try the AR1- Abid who owns the company is the most knowledgeable guy in the gyro biz. I.ve not flown one myself, but think highly of him. Unlike so many in the gyro world, he came from real aviation.
If you are interested in a Xenon, get the Trendak version. A bunch of politics there. Call me at 719-896-1298 if you have questions
Luggage space for me is two suitcaes each abot 20x14x7", but since I have short legs I have even more space behind my seat
