I bought the 250 without a Gyro. I have a 401 on one of my spare 450s. Anyone running a 401? What other gyros are you all using? Is the 401 a decent size for the 250 or is it too big?

I'm using a Hitec HG-5000 with a Futaba S3154 and they work excellent.

i use the 401 with no problems. its a bit heavier but handles the winds better and feels really stable in a hover but still gets around quick. i will get a lighter gyro someday but a 401 is great for now

I think a Spartan 760 is more around 13-15g with those super long wires.. The wires almost weigh as much as the gyro!

I plan to use the Logictech 2100 Gyro for mine when I get the T250.

sounds like you already got it going, joe. but, i started with the 401 (worked great), but got the logictech 2100t (same as Hitec 5000) because of the 17g weight savings.

the 2100 is not quite as good as the 401...but, i need to tweak on it some more. i sent you a pm.

if it ain't broke, break it.

You have to calibrate 2100T properly for it to work good.... Hitec 5000 manual have the procedure, if Logictec hasn't updated theirs yet.....

If you have a 240 on hand, try it!
But if you are going to buy a 240, I'd say don't waste your time and get the 401

I ended up going with the Spartan and shortened the wires. It is such a small gyro but works great!
