4G6S & 4#6S - Walkera 3 Axis Gyro System ***Instructions & Set-up***


My friends at www.wowhobbies.com contacted me yesterday and handed me the world's only other Walkera 3 Axis Gyro System (outside of the one in China). I have installed it in my 4G6 and it is amazing so far. It works so effortlessly and makes the heli so stable it feels like a dialed in CB100!!! The best thing is despite the stabilization characteristics, it still retains the quick cyclic response needed for more aggressive 3D flight. Unfortunately, since this was the first one, the firmware has not been fully updated so Idle-up does not work yet. Bummer. I honestly think that this will be the beginner/intermediate flyer's dream to do hands-off inverted hover and such. I can't wait for the updated version. It is coming soon... Stay tuned folks. This is going to be real good!!!

I will be installing it in my 4#6 and Ufly next to see what happens...

Hey Darryl, this is great news any idea of the cost yet, and what is needed to fully convert over, I see your using a 003 w/? pinion is there a reason for that or am I mistaken. Was it easy to setup or did it take you a min?
Sorry for the barrage of ?'s

Thanks for the reviews and I'm still waiting for the powder coated knightheads, have you any?

Hey Darryl

thanks for letting fly your G6 with the 3-axis gyro the other day
All I can say is WOW!. Super stable CB100-like 4G6.
Never thought the day would come but its coming. So smooth, so amazingly stable.

For those interested. I just purchased a brand new 4G6 the other day and its still in the box.
I told Darryl I am not taking it out of the box until I get my 3-axis RX. I'll just fly my half beat up other 4G6 until I can get my hot little hands on the booger.

thanks again DK - so cool!

P.s. - that is not a STOCK motor on your 4G6 is it? LOL!!!

Cheers

Hey guys
I know Darryl is out flying right now so to help answer some of your questions.
Hope you don't mind Darryl...

Cost? no idea right now
Delivery? I think sometime within the next 2 months
Pre-installed? there have been no talks about this however I am sure WOW Hobbies will be doing the custom upgrade as they do with all of their Walkeras.
Video? there is a quick maiden flight vid that was shot, up to Darryl for posting it
Set-up? from what I can recall, Darryl made very minor tweaks to the 5 pots on the RX and it was just plug and play from there.

you know what i just realized, i think walkera is a more advanced brand than eflite, as it has all these insanely cool advances in heli technology coming on or available for their heli's, but they all cost less than an eflite less advanced heli, but in the same class. this gyro is a perfect example. i don't see anything like it in eflite's line up. or i should say tries it first before eflight does.

hello,
it's just a 3 axis gyro to improve stability of a actual 4G6?
or a real FlyBarLess system and so you have a specific rotor head without flybar???

can you post a picture of your rotor head?

best regards!

Awesome. Two things that will make me happy right soon: SJM factory back producing parts & Walkera 3-axis FBL gyro for mini/normal heli for half the price of BeastX. Walkera is right at the front at the cheapie heli tech revolution. Yeah!
