I've been told that you cannot mix brands when it comes to Gyro & Servo combinations, any truth to that? I have an extra Futaba GY 401 which I would like to use with an JR DS400G digital servo on the tail of a T-Rex.
Thanks for your input,

Your GY401 can work with any brand servo. You just have to make sure you set the digital servo mode switch correctly. Only turn that ON if you have a digital servo; turning that ON with a regular non-digital servo can damage the servo. The digital servo mode updates the servo faster so you can get a better reaction time with the gyro.

The only gyro that needs a specific servo is the GY611 which requires a 9256 servo.

Thanks all for the responses. I kind of thought that the guy at the local hobby shop was up in the night.
