are gyro stabilizers worth the money?

i have a albatross and a DR.1 both made of balsa and the dr.1 is coated in silk. needless to say both of these planes took me a huge amount of time to build and the albatross has a high wing loading so it is unstable and the DR.1 is very easy to loose orientation with all the wings, it looks like one big wing when it gets to high. i was curious as to what people thought of adding in some of the new stabilizers like the Gardian from eagletreesystems.com do they actually help that much in squirly planes? i once had the FMA optical stabilizer and that was a huge peice of junk, every time it saw a hill the plane would bank. i think it cause more crashes then it saved. is anyone using one of the new ones and what do you think and what kind is good one to use
thanks jeff
