Just following Cierva’s example…………….

Differential horizontal tail surfaces to cancel throttle/torque roll.

Vertical tail surfaces centered in propeller slip stream to eliminate throttle/yaw coupling.

Looks good, JC.

I had saved your workshop photos years ago on my computer, but the hard drive failed.
Went to the autogire webpage, but could not find your photos there anymore.

Would you mind sharing them again on the forum, Jean Claude?

What a little beauty. I love the tractor designs, but the visibility of pushers, especially the single-seaters can never be surpassed. You are really in the unobstructed air (unless you can rotate your head 360* without moving your butt).
