P. Johnston, please explain how the GY701 is "better by a long-shot" in performance compared to the Quark by Spartan. By your statement,it's like your comparing apples and oranges and im having a hard time understanding the statement.Your actually saying there is a "WOW" factor in comparing the performance difference between these two products??

The 701 is a new era of gyros. The wow factor has to be experienced. The holding power of this gyro is second to none. It actually performs better than the 520 which is a pretty darn good gyro on its own. The gains that pilots are using takes us to the next step. This gyro is changing the way we think about conventional gyros. Try running the Quark at 70% gain as a starting point. I am currently at 85% gain in idle1 with not even a hint of tail wag. In the hover, guys are running in the 90's. Piro rates are more consistant than ever seen before. And when combined with the governor and an S.Bus receiver, well it's another world altogether. The gyro or governor will actually act sooner than ever when combined.

The 701 is based on a latest generation Silicon Sensing "Pin Point" sensor. This is a relatively new device and you can find further details at http://www.pinpoint-gyro.com/ (technical data sheets etc).

These devices have excellent performance. The actual part used by Futaba is not currently shown on the web site. It's essentially the same device but has been optimised for high vibration environments. I'm told that these heli specific sensors will be available in the near future. Keep an eye on the web site if this interests you...

Futaba have a good relationship with Silicon Sensing as they used their sensors in the 401 to 611 range of gyros (but not in the 520).

I imagine that other manufacturers will be considering/evaluating these sensors. I wouldn't be surprised to see a few competing "Pin Point" based gyro in the months to come...

701
a friend of mine called me and said he just got a 701 but doesn`t understand how to set it up.

Is it like a 601 or 611? Is there a quick and easy way to set up?

Thanks,Scott

Quick start guide gets it pretty simple.
Have your friend PM me with radio specifics and I will walk him thru it.

Guys, can the 701 make use of any servo or must it use a narrow pulse one?

hi,

check out the Gy701 manual. They do list the recommended servos. I would strictly stick with them.

cheers,

Nick,

Like the 520, the 701 supports analog as well as 1520/760 frame rate servos. In this regard, treat it as you did the 520.

BTW, the governor mode has digital and analog options as well.

Thanks Ben. I'm thinking of using a 701 in a NOTAR scale ship that would need a servo stronger than the narrow pulse ones available. Would like to use something like a 9255 or something with more Oomph. Speed is not as critical for this application.

Sorry I missed you in Muncie. Had really wanted to stop by the FAI area and say hi. Next time.

Same here Nick.

It'll drive a 9255 just fine. You might look at a BLS253 as well.
