Well its a good gyro and there's no reason why you can't. I assume you are going to use the 9251 that comes with it right? You need a T-Rex 600 tail servo mounting bracket to use it.

It will work but why use such a large Gyro? Fitting it in is going to be a real challenge. Why not go with a smaller package Gyro (with no separate Amp) like a JR 700 or Spartan?

I'm using a 502, basically the same thing. It works fine, you will need a larger mount if you use the 9251. I'm using a 9257, and you could too, if you enter the menu and change to wide pulse.

As always the 601 will be plug and play.

Flybars. Who needs `em.

I helped setup a 611 the other day on a 500. Held awesome. Plenty of room for the amp and sensor.

Just as if it was on a 50 or 90 . I have 611's on all my helis and 1 Spartan that I move around to see differences. I only can say that piro rate is more consistant on Spartan but holds the same as 611.

I stole it ,flew it and gave it back ;)
