Dynamic soaring with Spectrum gyro AS3X receiver


ive Got a Spectrum AS3X gyro receiver from another plane Iím not using. Just wondering if I should install it into one of my DS planes, would this help with DSing? Is it the similar to other gyro systems that others are using?


Thanks,
Tony

cant say about that particular gyro, but if you get it sorted it should help with rough air. Be sure to watch your gains aren't so high they start producing gyro-induced feedback/oscillating correcting/over-correcting etc (producing non-commanded violent oscillating pitch and/or roll movements).

If I recall, the AS3X only has a single channel for each axis. If your DS model will cope with that, then I can't see why it wouldn't work.

Yes Tony


Scott Magner has been flying with his in his kinetic 2m for 8 months. I think he has gone over 450mphmph with it. He is as flying the gyro in this video.

Does anyone know what type of gyro Scott is using? Is it the AS3X?
