One thing I've not tried is a 3ch with gyro. Dont' know the results or potential of that.
Thanks, this reminds me: you can probably set the gyro gain so that it is high enough to fight some wind, but yet low enough that the dihedral, etc. effect will overcome the effects of the gyro (probably helps to have something like a high wing trainer that has a strong dihedral, etc. effect).
