Looking great!
Yes...a pusher, if the motor is not off set correctly is going to need some rudder to compensate. A puller like yours is not going to have as many issues.

What's the pitch on your blades?
Final hang angle?
Mast angle compared to the tail fin?
Down thrust on motor?

Just curious....not going to tell you to change anything but these are important factors.

My Whopper autogyro (which I know I mentioned before) has no down thrust, no hang angle and still it flies great with the Shlutter gods are with me!

Best of luck and will be watching!
