Hi Bry,

Unfortunately our gyros are not really suitable for use with the Hummingbird as it features a motor driven tail. All of our gyros are specifically designed for use with conventional mechanical driven tails and servo controlled tail pitch sliders. Although many people do use our gyros in this way we do not recommend it. We have also seen problems with initialising the gyro / speed controller as they both need to be initialised at switch on. If you really want to use say the LW ICG 180 or LW HLG 200 Heading Hold gyro then you may find more information on one of the electric flight forums.

Best regards,

Andrew Powell (CSM).

Hum, they sell them, but then later tell you not to use them?

Yeah, I think you may be confusing CSM and Century Helicopters as the same company.
