So could you use the 3 axis gyro on a regular heli to make it more stable ?

For around $50 , it looks like a very interesting addition :
Three axis gyros don't make CP helis more stable. They simply replace a mechanical flybar with an electronic one.

There are multi axis gyros with self leveling features on them such as the Skookum 720, but these are typically much more expensive and have additional 6 axis gyro and accelerometer functions. Don't confuse these features as something a standard 3 axis FBL gyro will do.

You typically cannot use a 3 axis gyro with a flybar heli either. One will fight the other for control as the FBL unit is supposed to replace the flybar. The Flymentor is a device that can be added to a standard flybar heli that helps stabilize the heli for training.
