Charles,
I also dont like gyros, just fly a plane in the simulator with one.

But as3x, the gains are much lower than normal gyros, little coupling issues are gone, like speed-pitch coupling etc, but the gain is low enough that you have an entirely normal stall(just a bit smoother), you still need rudder and elevator for knife edge and slow rolls, just a less. It doesn't feel like three gyros, it feels normal, it helps where you want it(wind, roll stability, rudder stability, gentler stall, smooth landing and hand launches, etc) and is not as effective when you don't want it(rudder for knife edge, slow rolls, rolling circles, snaps, hammerhead, stalls, zero speed-pitch coupling, no p-factor or gyroscopic effect, etc).
