I learnt on a mechanical futaba single rate gyro.

I wish I had a HH and flash servo from the beginning.

I dont see anything wrong with a piezo gyro.. They were a good upgrade to the mechanical ones I learned with ..

not a bad gyro but not the best either....I learned on a peizo gyro....unfortunatley....once I strapped in a 401 my learning curve went up exponentially! I just didnt know what I was missing.... just get the 401 remember the poor man buys twice

I admit to anyone I don't know to much about gyro's other than fit them and go, so this next statement may sound stupid " but I thought all the modern gyro's including the 401 were peizo gyro's. " I await to be put wise !!

401, 601 & 500 all use silicon ring sensor. Or SMM sensor. They are not effected by unwanted inputs as much as piezo gyro's are.

Here is some really really interesting info on the sensor used in all GY series Futaba gyro's from the folks who make it.

No they are not piezo sensor gyros.

FWIW, JR uses the same sensor.
