Hi A IM
A very good question ...... and my answer is that many pilots fly models well ,but do not use regular rudder coordination , the rudder adds a fourth dimension for newbies to think about and can distract from the basic control inputs needed to keep the model aloft during first attempts.

However when autogyro wings have been gained, adding a rudder makes flat turns and attempts to rog the next tasks to achieve.

If any builder is already an experienced autogyro pilot then build on rudder right away ...but I doubt an experienced pilot would build a Crane Fly as it's just to easy

Tom.
