Futaba 502
Someone asked if the 401 is so great, why do experts use the 502. I have mostly 401s so I bought a 502 to see if its better. Wished I had stayed with my 401s. This thing has so many options to correct deficiencies in a helicopter that I will never use or understand halve of them.

Bump...

I am currently looking to buy a gyro for the Align Trex and have been stuck between the Futaba 401 and the CSM Micro 420. Apparently the new software for CSM is now available and greatly improves the CSM? Just curious what others think. I am looking at a direct comparison between these two gyros. Not the cheaper CSM 200, etc. Just these two.

So far it just looks like either will do.

I use both and I have had good success with them, however I like the CSM SL420 for its easy setup and awesome lightweight. 11~12 grams.
I am running revision 3 software

Well, I ended up getting the CSM 420 micro with the new V4 software. Should be great.

theshark, you can get the new V4 software in a week from http://www.rchelisplus.com/
Just order it, and tell Len to send you the new V4 software. He said it will be there early next week.

I meant the gyro with the new software . You could also send in your older Gyro and get the V4 upgrade for $22 if you already have a CSM gyro.

SL420 rocks... i love it...

holds head like a rock... weighs half of what the gy401 does....

easy to setup.. nice end point usage... boy today i set the rudder atv's to 100%... holy sh!tcows batman!!!!!!!!!!!!!

that thing pyros so fast i get dizzy watching....i'm talking its got to be 7 or 8 pyros per second.... ITS INSANE FAST!!!

70% is much easier for me to control and what i'm used to... just want to see what it did at 100%... simply crazy.

and despite that i can't get better than 48% gain i think due to tons of tail slop... it still holds rock solid heading in all my manuevers, including "altitude loss-straight to FULL throttle climbouts" not even a slight jerking of the tail...its beautiful.

Good Day: crashed thx to dumb thumbs. Bad Day: crashed mechanical malfunction. Every Day: CRASH :)

theshark, hey the V4 is just the software (internally), if you order now and just tell Len you want the V4 he will hold your order till next week and ship out the latest V4 software with your gyro. The price is still the same.

Hope that clarifies it better.

in my experience i have found that the ms honret gyro for the hornet 2 works pretty good... but i wouldn't go with anything other than a 401 on any of my steady 3d helicopters. the ms however was doing pretty dang good on a hornet i had a while back
