One of the big advantages the RAF has over most other gyros is to keep for a longtime the model as it is. That way old machines keep their value, a bit like the good Citi Golf. The manufacturers who keep on changing their models do it at the detriment of older ones, therefore are saying please don't buy my machine because it does not keep its value as I will come up next year with again a new model.

Great RAF pic.
