non HH gyro
how many guys fly upside down with a non HH gyro? it would seem coming out of it back to right side up would be harder cause the tail wouldnt hold still

Yup. When I started flying helis 4 years ago I was using a non-HH gyro and after awhile learned to automatically add the appropriate amount of rudder during certain maneuvers to keep the tail on heading. Revo mixing worked to keep the tail fairly straight as well but those methods are nothing compared what a good HH gyro does. If you want to see for yourself, just switch into normal mode with your gyro.

I'm all into micro electrics anymore in case that invalidates anything for anyone - But I have one with a 401 on it (H2) that holds pretty dern solid and that heli will pull off pretty much anything the big birds can (current favorite is piro-funnels/wod).

I have another with a non-HH piezo and motored tail (BCP) that is markedly limited compared to the other - I've been more used to and prefer an HH so the non-HH/motored took some getting used to - But I still fly it mostly inverted and perform aerobatics with it such as flips rolls funnels inverted funnels and mild backwards inverted backwards etc - I have to really stay on top of the tail almost all the time and when punching out to upright from an inverted hover I have to input a lot of anti-torque (I actually don't use any revo).

All fun stuff.

If you have the choice I'd be for getting more familiar with the 401 and make things much easier on yourself - But if you're comfortable controlling the tail without HH and want to try it - It's certainly doable - And like said a little revo could help.
