Can anyone tell me if there is a problem with using a telebee, eflite G90, or align gyro on a 30 or 50 size heli? I know they are small, but does that make a difference? If so, why?

Thanks

If you're thinking of getting a larger heli don't go cheap on the gyro, if you can't afford the equipment then you can't afford the helicopter.

Yes there is a night and day difference. With a crappy gyro you will be fighting the tail the whole time. With a good HH gyro you will be enjoying yourself and not worrying about the tail.

I once bought a couple of "cheaper" gyros in order to save some money, well I ended up wasting money. They were crap, didn't hold the tail at all. A GY401 with 9254 servo is the standard minimum spec for such helis IMO.

a side note
I understand the 401 is a great gyro, but I still dont see what makes a larger heli any different than a smaller one. if a G90 will hold a Blade CPP tail, then why not a larger heli? Im sure that experience show that they suck, but why?

thanks

Well if a gyro holds a tail, it will hold a tail. In fact, I find smaller helis need more control on the tail than larger ones, perhaps because smaller tail servos are generally less up to the job.

By all means try the G90, it may do for circuits and the like and the cheaper gyros don't tend to hold well when they're asked to hold the tail in more agressive manouvres.

agree
i can see where the small cheap gyros could crumble under the pressure of complicated maneuvers, it may be design or programming. will be an interesting comparison since i have a 401 and a g90 to play with

Note- larger heli needs bigger, more powerful tail servo. Make sure the G90 or Telebee gyro can deliver the current. Shouldn't be a problem, but worth checking.

I fly a micro gyro on my electric Trex 600, but its a Logictech 2100T, not ultra cheap but less expensive than a 401. Works extremely well with a Futaba 9254 tail servo, handling all the 3D that my current skill level allows, including tail slides, tic-tocs, pirouetting maneuvers.

Never, ever, ever, ever give up.
