when u set up a gyro on dx7 where do u set the gain on the gyro itself 100%? on the pot with screw driver.... then just use the TX to adjust it?

hahahaha, soo today Blazemob was down and we were getting his ES600 back up and flying, he bought a Futaba GY520 for it and already had a nice Align tail servo, but after hooking it all up nothing worked, soo after alot of messing around we figured out the servo was the problem, well the only servo I had laying around was a Futaba S3004 servo ($14) and after hooking it up it worked great, but it was soo funny to see two products (same company) at the extreme opposite ends of the quality spektrum ($200 gyro with a $14 servo), working together and they worked great, all things considered. His ES600 also has Futaba S3001 servos ($13) on it for the cyclic :prop: . It all works great flyaway

you should have heard me b!tching about it until I figured out how to program it, the directions were hard for me to understand, I'm a hands on kinda person but after I figured it out it was unbelieveably simple. Def recommend it for anyone, and its soooo small

yeah dealextrem.com got a 401 clone and it rocks.....

i just finally finished my first 450 build not counting the exi build witch sucked and the copter x is awesome im using align esc and motor and the 401 clone and it is so quit and and smooth can actuly take hands off the sticks for like 6 or 7 seconds before it starts to drift to one side...... no drift in tail kicks censored for a $19 gyro


my only complaint is some tail wag i can't get rid off but its soo little of a wag you have to stair at it for a long time and consontrate on it very hard just to see....soo i guess i can't complain since its only $19 bucks.....

you guys should all get one just for the hell off it good back up gyro!!




Hey ( FD ) i was thinking about getting the logitech 2100 gyro for my exi 500 but it says it 's ment for 450 class heli...do u use that gyro on all your heli's? and is the servo that comes with the 2100 gyro for a 450 or 500 size heli?

Yea man, I use it on EVERYTHING I got.. Even the "E" and "G"!! On anything 500 or bigger I use a Ino-Lab servo!! They are KILLER!! I would even use it on a bigger heli, electric anyway!!

I just installled the DX $20 Mystery gyro on my Belt CPV2. I turned delay to zero as I am using digital Esky 8g tail servo. Turned up the limit to about 125. Had to flip the DR to Rev. So far I only hovered in the family room but I can already say its sooooo muuuuch better than stock Esky gyro. It has no creep whatsoever. Rock solid on keeping tail in place during hover. It makes hovering so much easier. Once I see how it handles during flight I prolly get more of these things for other builds. In my opinion its well worth the price I paid for it.

My Esky gyro has major creep issue to the lright. I always had to mess with the rudder trim and re initializing the bugger to get it hold the tail. Sometimes it starts to creep during flight. Well it seems those days are in the past now.
