Would you be able to adjust your throws at the servo horn to compensate the different surface areas ?

Yes, not just at the servos or control horns, but you can also adjust the travel (ATV) from a dial on the gyro's as well.
They say you should have the airplane set up to fly well without the gyro even on, so I suppose that you'd want to adjust the ATV on the gyro before you played around with your linkages.

Where are you getting your GY48Vs from?

Airplane Gyro from JR that is being targeted towards Top Gun flyers.

http://www.horizonhobby.com/Products...rodID=JRPG370A

http://www.modelairplanenews.com/blo...aircraft-gyro/

....INTERESTING! The gyro has excellent instructions. Top Gun now allows the use of gyros??? Kool. This one slipped by me

(Need not be ashamed of using one on your planes...or listen to those who think it is a sign of weakness using gyros...anymore )

I believe that Pattern contest flyers have been able to use gyros for years, but only in 1 axis.

sounds fine, all I use them for is ailerons. Really helps with flying wings. It will turn your shifty wing into a docile slow flier

Very happy with the announcement of the AS3X from Horizon Hobbies. What am I going to do with all these gyros? Lol.

AS3X technology - Control the Air (10 min 10 sec)


What's real neat is the acceptance of the unit/technology, and its left me wondering if I awoke this morning into a different parallel Universe or dimension. Lol.

Hopefully this new ASX3 technology will once and for all kill the notion that gyros do not belong on remote controlled airplanes

Once they adopt it to a parkflyer this thread will be old info. :-(

I notice that they now have a AR7200BX - Spektrum branded 3 axis flybarless unit for helis. It won't be long....

gyros belong where ever you want to put them. If people don't like this, then don't buy it. I'm sure it will sell if it works. Stabilization by dampening UNWANTED movements will continue to grow. They govern helicopter engines. Is that cheating? They have glow drivers so engines don't die in flight. Oh, that's cheating cause your supposed to be really good at tuning to fly? BS. Technology always grows, this is part of it.

Does a gyro require a separate battery?

No, but as long as your ESC can provide the amperage to run everything. If not you may need to add a BEC, and this is common in flybarless helicopters.

The only thing that can hurt this would be quality control. It was an issue with the MCPx, the Beast v1, Sukhoi...etc. Anyhow, I'm wishing for the best when these things hit the consumers. I've always imagined doing a torque roll with my Beast over my front lawn. Now it's more than possible. I could not do it with individual heli gyros in my Beast....it became to heavy. Imagine a high alpha from the driveway to your deck....lol.
