Some people learn slower than others Abid.
I did not experience PIO in a Dominator after my first flight.
I don’t fly a Dominator because I prefer near center line thrust to a low thrust line.
I prefer a separate vertical stabilizer and ruder to a full flying tail.
I also prefer more horizontal stabilizer volume and out of the propeller slipstream.
I prefer a Lycoming for power.
An American Ranger is still my personal favorite production gyroplane.
I suspect I will like the balance on the rudder a lot.
Yeah I did not care for the close tail and full moving tail or the low thrust line. I was new to gyroplanes at the time. I should try it again now when I get a chance. I had flown it in 2005 also. Remember getting out and telling myself what in the world and going back to trikes and airplanes for almost the next whole decade. It just wasn't my cup of tea.
