Mine is fine

Hello folks
I've got one and it was the first autogyro I flew successfully. I had a PT 15 for months and had lots of trouble. Now I know what I did wrong it's just fine, but if it wasn't for the Cierva I may have given up on gyros.
I crashed my Cierva many times, firstly due to hand launching without full power, then more crashes due to orientation problems. I never had to do more more than stick a few bits of foam back into place and put splints on the landing gear legs before it was ready to fly again. It flew fine with most of the landing gear smashed off and a chunk of tailplane missing.
It can hover in a breeze and it flew fine in conditions which grounded electric gliders.
I am well pleased with mine.
