Turned over during landing, AutoGyroCavalon, OK-YWC 72

Status : Closed

At the end of the landing roll, just before the pilot wanted to move the control stick fully forward to level-off the rotor, a wind gust tipped the gyrocopter to the right which then overturned. It suffered severe damage. Both occupants were unharmed. The pilot stated that he should have moved the rotor into the wind earlier, even though the landing had not yet been completed.
