Hi Everyone, iv just bought a Next-D Rave 450, but im not to sure what gyro i should buy for it, im use to the futaba gy601 in my 90s and 50s, so im looking for that kind of performance, i was looking at two gyros, the mini solid G or the Align GP750 with servo, but if theres any other gyro out there you can think of then please let me know.

I've got a GY520 in my trex 450xl. I like it, it is easy to program and holds well.

wow this question is so easy lol, if you think the 601 can hold a tail you need to try the mini-g it is also very easy to set up prety much just a pnp. you will be very happy with the mini-g

oh and get the 3500g to go with it.

The 520 is absolutely tiny. I've just got a 3114 on it right now. I would recommend something better, but I honestly don't know what the best servo for it is. I know if you go to the Futaba website and look at the manual for it, they recommend particular Futaba servos to pair with it.

Any of the newer gyros will work fine. I run a GY520 on my Rave and it's great.

the software for advanced programming for it will be available to download from the website. i'm not sure how different it looks from the 760 software.

Mini-G with the G-view is the cat's ass. I love it on my Trex 500. The 3500G is also a must have. Oh, and the recently dropped the price to $158. I'm putting a second one on my new Trex 700LE.

Here exactly are you getting the data that they outperform the MiniG?

the MiniG flat rocks and is easily as good as a spartan and much better than the POS Align.

even Bert K. at SRC was heard to say that the Align gyro is 1 step above a 401 and should be replaced with a serious gyro.

Mini G without a doubt. It's basically made for that machine.

The Inertia 760 works great. I am about to get a 2nd one. The 601 is older, if you think it holds, wait till you embrace the newer line of gyros, ie. mini-g spartan, 520, inertia 860. They will all blow the 601 away in performance and ease of use.

I got the futaba 520 on all my helis, Gasser, scales and Trex 600esp, the best gyro in the market, better than the 611.

Ive tryed 5 so far,the Futaba GY240/GY401,Align GP750,JR G770 3D and the Spartan DS760.The Spartan DS760 is the best of the 4 and the JR G770 3D is better than the Align gyro,I would pick between the Spartan DS760 or Mini G .I flew a friends heli with the Mini G and it feels and holds the same as my Spartan,you'll be happy with either one and there programable .Both work awesome with the JR DS8900G.

600LE,OS55,OS PowerBoost pipe,Align 610's,Spartan
