My next project is the Century Augusta 109 and I was wondering if fitting a standard rate gyro wouldn't give the helicopter a more scale-like performance.

I have always used heading-hold gyros for 3D but scale is a different thing (or not?)

It's easy to find an excuse to do wrong. Hard is not to find an excuse to do right.

I used to feel the same way as you, thought the rate gyro was better for scale, until I got used to flying a heading hold gyro. Still don't think the holding qualities of the gyro is as important on scale as with sport/3D, that is unless you intend to fly your scaler inverted and backwards. I'd say why not use something like the Futaba GY 240 and that way you can fly it either way with just the flip of a switch.

The government cannot give you anything without first taking it from someone else.
