I wanted to congratulate David Nigbor (Wisconsin) for receiving the top award at Sun N Fun 2019 with his AR-1 convertible gyroplane.
And now Russ Croman of Texas who built his AR-1 kit in Texas just got awarded Grand Champion Gyroplane Lindy award at Oshkosh 2019.

Congrats to both.

Abid, Does anything have to change on the red one with the tail when convert it to fly without the canopy or does it stay as it is shown? Congratulations on the awards!

It depends on you. You can leave it or take off the dorsal fin. It is more yaw stable with dorsal fin left on so if you were going to fly doing sideways jiggle in open cockpit, the dorsal will fight you. That is the only difference
