I don't recall many mentions on this forum of the ELA gyroplanes. I know there are not as many open ELA models flying as there are MTO models, but they seem to have a large modern factory in Spain and there seems to be a pretty big presence throughout the world. I also know that importing to the USA has just begun, through Aerotrek. I am thinking about a gyroplane purchase and I have flown the MTO and the Apollo, loved them both. I would really like to hear from anyone with an ELA experience. I know the design of all three is very similar, but I understand the ELA has a composite rotor instead of aluminum. Any comments or comparisons would be very welcome.
