Yeah, for the first few flights I turned the gyros off when close to the ground until I learned their capabilities. I would recommend you do the same as the ground is your biggest enemy.

You can't fly straight in a crosswind. The plane will always drift with the wind, gyros or no gyros. Gyros will help fight the turbulence or sudden gusts. You'll still have to fly the plane slightly sideways in a crosswind approach and kick it straight with the rudder right as you flare.
