have you ever flown a plane or helicopter? Me not, too, but I've got experience flying model aircraft and helis (not drones).
I can tell you, a helicopter is much more complicated to fly than a plane (what a gyrocopter is basically, just without wings).
You can stear only 3 axes at once flying a plane, but 4 with a helicopter. Flying a heli you have to compensate every action with
the tail rotor. E.g. you want to climb you have to compensate the increasing torque with the tail rotor, same when diving (decrease).
The faster you fly the more you have to compensate with the collective pitch for the rotorblade running reverse to flight direction loses
it's aerodynamic lift. All this doesn't happen flying an airplane.
The only advantage is the VTOL capability.
