Agreed...she should fly great without it, my 150 sure does.

But she flies so nice with the AR6335!

Perhaps they should have released this as a BNF Basic version... including the AR6335 and digital servos?

Why the digital servos?

I believe someone posted that the AR6335 works with digital servos.

I personally would be more hesitant and likely not to buy if it were a BNF with the AS3X and digitals..

For something this small and low impact flying, I'm thinking that a gyro and digital servos are just over-engineering.
A gyro, maybe.... UMX Carbon Cub flew nicely with AS3X.
But even so... my L4 Grasshopper w/o a gyro flies better than the CC with a gyro.

There is specific mention of digital servos only in the AR635 manual. I looked at the other AS3X RX's and there is no other mention of this.

Perhaps David can clarify?

Correct, just looked up the AR6335 manual and nothing about using digital servos exclusively.

I find this so true..

As I stated earlier...

ALL gyros or accelerometer systems use digital servos. It is not over engineering... it is a requirement for proper performance. Analog servos produce full torque only at the end of travel while digital servos can produce full torque anywhere in the travel spectrum...in other words at half deflection elevator a digital servo has more torque to "hold" that position than a similar rated analog servo does. Gyros make a tremendous amount of corrections in a minutes worth of flying...it is constantly working the servos in every position from no deflection to full deflection and every place in between. A digital servo can keep up with this demand, an analog servo simply can not...they would work, but not as well as a digital. Using an analog servo with a gyro would be like running a race tuned car engine on 87 octane...in would run...just not as well as its capable of.

My Grasshopper with no AS3X flies just as good as my PKZ Sport Cub with AS3X.
