Blade airfoils

Mickey, you said more than once that at this size the actual cross-section doesn't matter much, but you also repeat that symmetrical airfoils' center of pressure doesn't move as the pitch changes. Why not use symmetrical blades for autogyros, the kind available off-the-shelf for CP helicopters?
