If you are thinking of getting a gyrocopter get comfortable using the left stick to fly your planes. It took a lot of effort on my part to do that. I made the effort after the aileron servo stopped working on a student's plane I was teaching and I was forced to bring it in using rudder. I do not know if the gyrocopter flight simulator program requires rudder use. I have RealFlight3.5 and have downloaded a Gyrocopter program(I believe it is the KnifeEdge thing mentioned above) and flown it. I just tried to find it on my computer so I could write this correctly, and I have not been able to find it. I'm a little lost right now. I actually tried to order a Gyrocopter from the vendor in Arizona about 10 days ago and they were out of stock till January 2009.

Hello, thanks for the reply.
I have been using the left stick to fly my planes for years. Too risky using ailerons in close proximity to the ground.
I saw a video of a guy flying an auto gyro the other day and he said that it was his first one and his second landing. He did a great job.
I just e-mailed Autogyro Company of Arizona to ask them if they had considered an auto gyro simulator,
