FMT-40 (I think), Leader Hobby GY520 and Tarot GY550 are all the same MEMS hardware with minor software differences and perform similarly. Out of all of them the Tarot version is said to perform slightly better. I have the Tarot on my 450 sport clone and it holds the tail as if you were were turning the helicopter in your hands. Stops the instant you stop giving it rudder with no overshoot. My only complaint if a very faint bounce on CC piros when you stop hard and a couple degrees of yaw on punch outs. Still after trying the GA250 I saw just how bad a cheap gyro can be and compared to that the 550 seems amazing.

Right there ! [ not flaming U or nothing ] is one reason , and why I consider it interesting .

@ $15 [ price of a move ] 1/5 of a tank of gas , or eating at MacSomething ! , I find it interesting enough to put my money down , to find out for myself if it will vex me !

Bit like buying a $10 heli kit , just way too interesting !

If I end up smacking it with a hammer cos its rubbish ! = I will post a video ...
That's $15 from my pocket .

So will it work ? or will it get smacked with a hammer ?
Damn , now I'm excited to find out !
