Having flown them all and being instructor rated on all, I like the simple maintenance on the M24 and the Zen / xenon, the view from the Xenon and it’s bigger cabin for me makes it a winner For me.
I find the Cavalon a bit cozy,.. as I do the M24, the Cavalon is similar in construction to the Polish ships so it’s proven that a Monocok construction is safe. I don’t like the pre rotator maintenance or service on the Cavelon I don’t like the cables on the controls... Magni and Xenon / Argo / Trendak offer pull push rods and we all know they are bullet proof.
I don’t like the over engine rads we see on the Auto Gyro models while I have no evidence that they are problematic, the 915 still needs to prove its provenance ..
I have flown a 915 gyros and that extra power is very welcome but .... before I put my cash there let’s see a few high hour 915’s and let them prove provinence?
As a helicopter pilot myself I find the view through the feet of the Polish gyros very welcome, if I may add please fly them all before you purchase.
The best resale ( if it’s a factor) will be the M24 IMO
The polish machines are like Lexus ...fantastic but no resale value .... but I I never purchase anything for its resale value, rather just it’s value
