50mm F-22 w/GYRO, need info!

OK, who has one, and how does it handle with the gyro? Is it a 3 axis gyro?

I just received it 2 days ago. It looks like a 2 axis gyro...pitch and roll. The instructions are not so clear and I have never used/installed gyro before. So I hope someone here will tell me how to install. Not even sure if it came with all the correct parts.

Update: I installed my gyro last night. I put it sideways for correct orientation, and I also had to bend the pins to get it to fit properly that way. Once hooked up it seems to function as it should, but it took a long time for the servos to return to center after the gyro made corrections. I'm not sure if this is normal or if I did something wrong, has anyone else seen this issue?

Gyro Configuration

Hi BLOWZILLA and fellow pilots! The gyro will require a bit of calibration in order to work as intended. Attached is a copy of the gyro's manual. Please feel free to download a copy for viewing. Also, in the most recent flight review, Pete thoroughly goes over the setup for the gyro. Please check it out! Thanks! -Seba

Hi bluemeane! Granted that the smaller scaled EDFs are bit more trickier to handle, the gyro should make the Mini F-22 unbelievably stable in which words cannot even begin to describe. You will have to iron out the proper pre-flight checks and test her out yourself! Just a reminder, be sure to test all electronics before you build. And of course, always perform a pre-flight check before any planned flight. Let me know how everything goes! Thanks! -Seba

I just installed an Eagle A3 3 axis on a 64mm EDF F-16. This gyro was only used for Ailerons and elevator but WOW! what a difference. Im very much a novice on the RC flying world just because I have never flown with anyone else. So my world has been limited to RTF warbirds and EDFs (and a lot of glue and broken dream) So I dont have a vast knowledge on this hobby.
The gyro installed in just a few minuets and required ZERO adjustments or anything. It was so easy. I am now planing on ordering the low dollar gyros from HK to go in all my planes.

Hi bluemeane! Please carefully check under the canopy and the inside of the jet's underbelly compartment. -Seba

I sent an email to the service department department by way of your service page on the website.

I have a couple other minor issues as well...

Here is what I sent to the support team (Haven't heard back yet but hope to do so tomorrow)

So I sent an email about missing the gyro earlier today (And I still can't find it anywhere in the box or plane) And so I started to put it together as I assumed I could do that until the gyro issue was resolved, and it seems as if the elevators have a curve to them. (I have pictures I can and will send when asked to do so) It is also missing 2 of the little hinges for them, there are a total of 6 rather than 8.

So to sum it up, great plane, shipped well considering no packing inside just taped to the box lol, but it is:

Missing: Gyro, and 2 of the hinges.
Bent and curved: The elevators.

Please advise.
