Hello. I have the opportunity to buy a Raptor 30 with ACE 7000 Gyro / DS6006 Tail Servo combo. I have always been a Futaba GY401 kind of guy - what do you think about this combo?

Thanks.

I like the combo. It's more sensitive to gain setup than the 401. Piro rate seems to be more consistent. Tail servo can run higher voltage so you don't need a stepdown, nice bonus. I really like the fact that the left and right limit are separate functions.

Is that the newest ace gyro?

Man, I miss the eighties.

I quite like the DS0606 servo - works well on my Rappy 30 with a CSM 420 gyro.

Thanks for the input, guys. I picked up a used Raptor 30 with these components.

One question - when using the DS0606 servo, what do you set the switch to - 760us or 1520?

It must be set on 1520.

The only servos I know of that run at 760 are the Futaba 251/256's
