I've got one of these.

2.3g

Seems to work fine but I haven't actually flown it in a plane yet.

After reading up on the website, it's a single axis gyro.

Gord, apologies for not making that clear. It's a rate only single axis with no remote control. Assumed that was what he was after. It's been around awhile and was intended for the small helis. Roll is what I would use this for on a tiny plane. I don't know of any 3 axis aircraft gyros at this size - yet.

After reading a little more about this, I see it is different that what I thought. Pretty neat though

I forgot to mention earlier, I got to go fly yesterday. Freakish break in the Dec winter weather. I just took 4 planes but only got to fly 3 of them.
First up was my mini Swift power glider from HK. The breeze was kicking up a little high for this bird and it was proving to be a challenge. I was wishing I had a micro gyro to help smooth things out. Does anyone know of a micro gyro that could be used in such a small plane?
Second up was my Mini T-28 from HK. No problem with the wind at all. A little ballooning when turning into the wind but that's normal and expected and easy to correct because you know it's coming.
Third up was my Stinger 60 from HK. Absolutely a great flyer and wind up to 15mph doesn't effect it at all.
Fourth was going to be the maiden of my Moray which is supposed to be very good in wind, but I forgot to secure my rx while setting it up and I didn't have anything with me to do it with, so it was a no go
Anyway, great afternoon flying just before dark, but still some proof that I like the idea of gyros in my planes that need it in windy days. My Parkzone F4F Wildcat is another one I will be putting a gyro in.
Capt where do you fly? Have you been to the DCRC field?

Some specialized small 3 axis aircraft gyros (has Rx+gyros+perhaps ESC):
1. Horizon Hobby's as3x
2. At least in pre Devo Tx days, Walkera had some 3-axis control units for 120 size FP heli's with 3 servos (including one for yaw), which were usable on a plane (some sold by Wow Hobbies for use as such). Walkera did sell some small 3-axis gyro controlled planes. Now that the Walkera's WK2801, etc. Tx's are obsolete and Devo Tx's are current, I do not know if the equivalent still exists.

If you include bricks with stabilizing gyros built in then the new receivers from Origin ( makers of the HobbyKing SuperMicro system) are also an option.

Do you have a pointer? I have never seen these before.

It's this stuff.

Looks like their i3D receivers have stabilization built in.

It's still paperware so far but I am expecting some to arrive any day now.

Hi,
I was trying to install first time gyro to stabilize my plane by controlling the aileorns. But I don't know to make connection. And i am still confuse whether on making connection will it be possible to control the ailerons by both remote and gyro or not. Please help!

Not yet, I went to CASA for the first time this past Sunday and had a blast. Mostly because there were only about 5 guys there including myself.
I used to be a member of NVRC but I didn't rejoin due to personal preferences.
What's it like at DCRC?
What is mostly flown there?
How crowded does it get on peak days?

Thanks in advance for info.

What's it like at DCRC? Very nice. Great runway, great support. Well run club.
What is mostly flown there? Big jets, electric planes and helis. Have a separate field for helis.
How crowded does it get on peak days? Not bad at all. But same as other places you will have around 5 to 6 pilots at a time on peak times like Saturday and Sundays around noon to sunset.

Thanks!
Would you happen to know what Tx (module?) will be usable with these?
Perhaps HK's super-micro Tx module?

Did you read the gyro page at mycoolrc?

Did you watch the vids?

Go to their web page (address on the bottom of the two pages I posted) and look at the full catalog. It was too big to attach to a post here. Has all the details of Tx modules and servos.

English version here:

http://www.origin-kk.com/home_en.asp

The new module has both DSM2 and their proprietary protocol. What I don't know until I try it is whether that proprietary protocol is the same as the earlier HobbyKing Super Micro system. You would think and hope it was but I have learned not to assume too much.

Thanks! I went to their web page earlier and did not notice the DSM2.
