This has just given me a though. I'm asking it here as there are far more knowledgable, smarter people then me who could answer it! I suspect that one of the things that is hardest for us as RC pilots to control is slip in turns. We don't have the cotton thread taped to the canopy to be sure that our turns are perfectly co-ordinated!

How would a gyro on a rudder work in turns? Could it be fooled into working as something that maintains zero slip in turns (i.e. zero yaw) rather than a heading hold in a DIRECTION?

Just wondering out loud really.
