Thanks Eyal, that is exactly what I am finding with my gyros. I recently looked into the FMA Co-Pilot and it looks like for $100 US it costs about the same as a decent gyro (or 2 simple gyros). How do you have it hooked up in your tandem? Does it control servos as the description seems to imply? Or are you handling pitch and roll with differential thrust as I am trying to do?

I don't think a lot of solutions are meant to be used in the motor control circuit, which is a little "unconventional". To complicate things further, all of this stabilization must go away after transitioning to forward flight since the roll axis becomes the yaw axis and the pitch axis is controlled by direction of thrust (or servo position) as opposed to the amount of thrust. So I need a way to reduce or disable the stabilizing device after transition. Again, thanks for your feedback.
