I use the ar6100e, works really well for me. For a gyro, you could possibly find a deal on a used 401/9650 combo. Still a classic set-up

Thats perfect!!

+1 ^^ ^^ great advice

ar6100e is fine, a friend and I did a range test on his receiver and it was so far away before it lost signal it was crazy. You would never be able to fly(see it) as far as we were before signal loss. Perfect for the 450

I had a 401/9650 on my 450seV2 and its a perfect match!! I would try to find a nice used 401, and the servo is $60 new! If you cant find the gyro cheep id just get a futaba gy520 for $140 new! I also paid $140 for MiniG so just make sure you don't pay too much for the 401!

Used Futaba GY401's have been going around $75 shipped in the classifieds but they go within a day or two of listing.

The align gyro and servo combo is also a good option. They are relatively inexpensive.

Try the AR6110e for your 450. The 6100e is great, but I think it's been replaced by the smaller 6110e.

Give the Inertia 860 a shot for a gyro. I've got three (replacing 401's in the process) -- one in a 500, 600N, and 700N and they perform with the best of them.

If you've got an old functional gyro laying around, you can trade it right now for an Inertia 860 -- for half price. Not a bad deal.

+1 on the inertia. I have a 401 on my 450 and an inertia on my 250 and I can tell a world of difference.

AR6100's and AR whatevers are made by spektrum. They are compatible with all JR and spektrum radios.

Dont buy one of the cheap gyros. If you dont have the money, wait untill you do.

This is the cheapest gyro that will work :

http://www.hobbycity.com/hobbycity/...Head_Lock_Gyro_

It's also sold under a few other names including , Mystery MY401B and XMSeller G401B . Do a search , there are plenty of happy users , I have three fitted to helis and a spare one .

At the end of the day , it gets dark .

I'm pretty new to this but it seems like the gyro is kinda the heart of the whole operation. I think that is about the last thing you want to go cheap on. Get a good one even if it costs you a little more.

A reliable gyro is to me the most important thing. On other items I have gone the cheap route and always been dissapointed. I know alot of people say that HK gyro is as good as the expensive ones but I would like to see some big 3D moves thrown at it.

He is only going to use the 450 for hovering orientations in his yard.

On the other hand, for 14 bucks for just hovering and stuff it could be worth a shot. Who knows maybe I will add one to my next HK battery order.

You can pickup Futaba GY520 Gyro's for $125 to $130 and the S9257 is a newer and faster servo than the S9650 and it's the same price.... I wouldn't waste my time on the Futaba GY401 or the S9650.. not with the next generation Futaba items at the same or maybe $10 to $20 dollars more. That being said one of my Trex 450's is still flying on the Futaba 401-9650 combo.. and it flies great.

T-REX 450 TREX 450 se which gyro ?

Yes guys, i am still at hovering stage with my raptor too....

So, will be with Trex 450...Forget the 3D part..it will take years here to do that..In entire Delhi not more than 15 people fly helis, no club or anything and almost all are new ( except a few who do sport flying like inverts , loops, stall turs, pirouetttes etc.)

Already got the servos HS65 for trex... Coz of the above reasons i am trying for a cheaper gyro...

Once i start making circuits will change the gyro....Anyways will see what my pocket allows at the moment...

I'd say that you can't afford two RC hobbies, especially if one of them happens to involve RC Helicopters. They are not inexpensive to purchase, to outfit, and to fly.

Buying really cheap stuff for a helicopter is self-defeating. Trucks you can skimp on. Something that has the potential to get loose and kill you needs a bit more attention.

The Align GP750 gets the job done, the 401 is a good choice. However I run a JR G500t.
