I've got several rate gyros and they're great for taming gusts. But trying to track straight down a runway during takeoff - with a crosswind - you need more than a rate gyro. This is owing to constant nature of the wind on heading, versus a gust.
I'd like to play with a HH gyro to get arrow-straight takeoff runs, but didn't realize they had come down $O much!
More than you ever wanted to know about using a HH gyro to stabilize a takeoff run is here
It's the other one GY48V that i'm using. I am currently only using the Gyro in rate mode for stabilization in high wind and it's turned off during launch. I have not had luck with HH, need to learn and play a bit more with it.
