Nice work! Added to my: Quadrocopter and Tricopter Mega Link Index
That is a nice source for the Murata gyros. Good replacement gyro source for the MK v1.3 and X-Stuff boards too Another good source I have found for the Murata gyros and other usable parts is in the Walkera UFO #4 boards:
Also I would love to know the name of the 3-axis mechanical quad of which you mentioned and show board photos. I have not heard of that one before and am curious about it.

Maybe some of you remember it?
The ESC's is from the same time period, GWS ICS50 2Amp.
I'm not too keen on tri-rotors. I like the symmetry and simplicity of a quad-rotor.
I'm not sure about the $, but it is not much.
Gyro sensors can be extracted from the $16 HobbyCity HK401B gyro (also known as the "GYRD", as written on the case )
The sensor is a Murata ENC-03M GYROSTAR, see attatched datasheet.
As a nice bonus you also get an Atmel ATMega88 and a 8MHz crystal
Any questions, just ask
