Hey Charles.

I've been flying for almost fifty years. I think everyone misconstrues the use of gyros. They just extend the range of conditions under which you can fly.

I haven't yet flown any of the HH three axis systems but I've got hours on my 9 oz. pico Tiger Moth FPV that has a gyro in it. Stuck it there in the hope of better video and fly it under the most horrendous conditions you can imagine. Glued it back together several times when the wind smacked at low altitude. I can't see any reason to ever take the gyro out. It doesn't interfere with my control, but it does help steady the cam and make gusty conditions seem less gusty.

Pete
