Gyro Help Needed

Buying chopper very shortly.

Choice will be T-rex 450 xl ccpm or Eco 8.

Which would be better and where is best price obtainable??????

Main item I am very unsure of is the gyro.

Should I have a Gy401, a Gy240, or the money saving Piezo.

The 401 and the 240 are the same size and weight but one costs a little more.
Do they do the same thing?

Which is better and the best for small helis?

Any little knowledge would be a big help at this point!

Thanks guys.

The Futaba gy401 and gy240 are both very well behaved. I highly recommend them.
If you have a free channel on your receiver for the remote gain, I would recommend getting the gy401. Both will work perfectly for basic hovering. The gy401 will work a bit better when you get better.

What part of the world do you live in? It is easier to make recomendations for suppliers if we know. Consider going into your user profile and adding location infromation.

Oh, I have an older T-rex and I love it. I do not think you would go wrong with the XL CPPM.

do you have RC Heli experience? If not, seriously consider getting a good sim (Realflight G2, G3 or Reflex XTR are all great)

Iff you are a newbie to heli's I recommend that you consider a Light Machines Corona. This kit is a bit more expensive than a trex but spare part costs are pretty reasonable and you will not go through as many learning to fly it! Good luck.
