are 3 Axis Gyro/Stabilizer worth it?

Guys, I was thinking of getting a 3 Axis Gyro/Stabilizer for my plane. Do you think its worth it or is it a waste?

Steven,
What plane are you considering getting it for? An autogiro? Autogiros, when properly trimmed are one of the most stable model aircraft, so an electronic stabilizer is really not needed.

Cheers,
Russ

They are worth it to me. I like to use a gyro if the plane has sentimental value to me. I have trained a couple of new rc pilots on a plane with Horizon Hobby's SAFE technology and it helps with learning to fly rc aircraft. Gyros and flight stabilization systems I feel are useful.

I think the OP doesn't (or didn't) know that an autogiro is a type of aircraft and made his post in the wrong thread....

This is not an Autogiro forum.. Its "Auto Gyro" forum. Please refer to title.

Maybe all the people posting about their Gyrocopters are in the wrong place.
