Dual gyros, flaperons arrrgggg
So I’m a cheap bastage and don’t want to upgrade my dx7.
Though now my skywalker has so many bells and whisles im trying to find ways to integrate items. So here we gooooooooooo...........................
I want to use flaperons instead of seperate flaps/alerons but I use a gy401 off my ailerons with a y harness currently. So going to flaperons I will have to eliminate the gyro I believe. As I will have 2 channels instead of one to run through the gyro.
Alas I have 2 elcheepo 12$ gyros that are tiny. Problem is they default to heading hold unless you plug in a separate wire to a switchable channel to change it to non HH mode.
So first question is: Does anyone know how to trick the gyro into thinking its getting the proper signal over the remote wire?
Second: anyone have another idea to solve this issue with a single gyro?
Don’t be capt obvious and say install flaps.

Or buy a Futaba GYA351 airplane gyro which is single axis, but has two inputs/two outputs
so it works with flaperons/elevons/etc.. $135 though.

just pick a wing and run that one by itself. ive seen that done by a lot of nitro pattern noobs that can't afford better over the years.
it works fine.

FYI, I have used one gyro on one control surface before with no issues. I did this on a flying wing with elevons and on my skywalker, Works fine. As for the signal, maybe a $7 servo tester? Or, do you have any channel on the rx that never goes to the point that would put it in HH mode? if so, just tap into that signal.
