401/9254 works great on my R90! Doing very mild 3D now. Plan to upgrade to a 611 or equivalent when I can feel the need for it. It's the best gyro to start with IMHO because it is literally fit and forget and will take you a long way before needing to be upgraded. BTW I would be a little nervous of 2nd hand gyros unless you are sure they have not been crashed!

720 is certainly a very impressive gyro, better then GY601, and less expensive !
Exactly.


CSM720 here aswell.

The 720 is great. However, gyan was asking for "less expensive HH alternatives." Here in the US and I'm pretty sure Canada as well, the 720 is not cheap by any measure ($220 US). The 720 plus a suitable servo (8700G ~$120, 9254 ~$100, 9251 ~$110) is more than a 611/9256 combo ($320 US).

Sorry John - but I just have to take issue with your figures. You are comparing the full recommended retail price of the SL720 with the lowest 'under the counter' discount price of the 611. The SL720 is advertised all over Europe for the current equivalent of $193 and I have heard of prices as low as $181. So with the 9254 available for just under $100 the SL720/9254 combo should be better than level money with the 611.

Best regards

Colin

Because we ARE paying full retail for CSM products here in the US.

It is the known price for the 611. Just a silly Futaba policy which doesn't allow them say it up front and out right.

Colin, where can I find a SL720 for $181? Looks like the exchange rate is getting worse for us (in the USA) these days....
