Soon Cierva's Autogiros again were equipped with lateral control provided by the rotor and at the same time the rotor also controlled the autogiro longitudinally. All this was accomplished with a simple principle; tilting the rotating axis of the rotor in the direction that control was wanted.

The plane flew, but subsequent attempts by De la Cierva failed. The Cierva C was an autogiro designed by Juan de la Cierva and built under licence from the Cierva Autogiro Company by A V Roe & Co Ltd (Avro), Lioré-et-Olivier and Focke-Wulf.

Before the experimental Cierva C Mk V, autogiros had been controlled in the same way as fixed-wing aircraft, that is by deflecting the air flowing over moving. Used book, clean and bright internally, with some reading wear and shelfwear.
