Stabilizers for wings?

How well do the flight stab work for wings? I have a left over zyx and a flip 1.5 multiwii hanging out. Is it even worth trying to throw on a stab for a wing?

Planning on putting a Lemon Stab in my next Wild Wing build.

There are those in the Lemon thread who have put it in wings using the built-in elevon mixing.

Here's the thread on the Lemon stabilizer:

I've heard of people using Eagle Tree 2D/3D gyro on elevon planes too.

I use the eagle tree vector on a couple of my wings. It's basically the guardian + osd with a few extra features. The stabilization works really well, and makes some wings that are otherwise twitchy, easy to fly.

Where did you get them? I thought they discontinued that wing. They were great, I'd love to get my hands on a few of them.

My buddy had some left over from when he used to fly back in the day.... he gave them to me. I took and made one stock and lame for fpv. The other one I'm cutting the middle down to make more of an angle on the leading edge and putting a power motor and make it do 100mph+

Just put a Eagletree Guardian in my new X5 today. Ready to maiden.
Stabs/gyros work well in wings.
My TekSumo has a P1 gyro in it.

Grantham Kid - how did you program the elevon mix in the Eagle Tree Guardian?

You can do it on computer, or, if you know what you are doing, Flick the mode switch quickly 3 times as soon as you turn it on and it cycles between normal plane, v tail and Elevon Wing.
