Here is one thing that should be very obvious to anyone paying a lick of attention.
Extruded blades are risky.
Rotor blades constructed with a spar and glued skins seem to be the safest type of construction available.
If you have the money to afford these expensive gyros, then spend another couple thousand dollars and replace your questionable extruded blades with a set of blades from Gyrotechic or sportcopter, then you will have peace of mind.
The only extruded rotors I have heard having serious issues are all copies of AirCopter rotors.
AutoGyro rotor system
Trendak rotor system
Do you know any other extruded rotors generally used having these issues?
