I might get five to ten flights in, then it happens again. I'm 100% sure the issue is with the gyro. I use the same TX for all my toys and swapped out the RX but the problem still persists. All three servos were also replaced with Hitec's after the first indecent as one got striped.

I haven't heard of any updates on the TG-1, but the symptoms you describe are very likely caused by electrostatic discharge (ESD). I'd suggest you ground your tail shaft to the boom and the boom to the motor mount to prevent ESD. Use a multimeter to verify there is electrical continuity between your tail shaft and motor mount.
