I fully agree with you! If I had my way, a dual gyro-glider would be required for the first phase of flight training. I would like a glider to have an electric pre-rotator for at least an inital use in training.Rotormouse;376777#5 - A gyro-glider is the best initial training you can have. If more students began on gliders (with [I said:proper[/I] instruction) there’d be less blade bending coz they’d know how to handle their rotors before they get onto power.
Old fashioned, yes. Obsolete, no.
