Has anyone ever used sport copter blades on their Dominator. Do you have to do anything special?

I suspect the extra weight would raise the center of gravity in an already low thrust line gyroplane.

I suspect you would need more trim spring.

I have not done this so tihis s just supposition.

I used a pair of McCutchen rotors on a Dominator with nothing but good results. They spun up a little slower because of the weight.

I've always run 25' SportRotors on my Dominator Single. They are very smooth and need no stringing.
