What to do? Failed tricopter build!

Here is the thread:
http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showt...ricopter+build

Unfortunatly, it doesnt work. Now I realize why all the other quad and tri motor things have gyros I tried building that without any gyros, and no luck - waay to sensitive.

Motors designed for 9x6 props, went down to 8x6, that helped a little, and even radio is down to 2% travel, but it seems to be that the ESC's "steps" are too big. That what I get for buying a cheap $10 esc!

So now I'm wondering, now what. I could solve the problem immediately by buying a $2000 Spartan AP2000i, but thats costly... I could just make 3 planes, but I'm still losing some money and effort on this tricopter... lastly I could just buy 3 cheap $12 gyros from Hobby City and directly connect them to the ESCs, but since the "steps" are too big would the gyros help? Thanks!
