Can I get some opinions from those who have experience with both the Futaba GY601 and the CY Solid G. Thanks.

Hi UH-60PILOT, I have both gyros, one in each of my 600N. They both hold well, however the solid G has a more consistent pirouette rate either way. It also handy (with the Solid G) to choose your model from the list in setup for a base start.

Jesse,

So you are admitting that you are an idiot. The fact that you can't hover proves it! I guess I'm an idiot too for getting back into flying Nitrizzle chinery but so far I'm lovin it fo shizzle!

In fact it is really metter to have it easy to operate. I love helism but it make me nervous a long setup with digital interfaces. i think our eyes and brains are enought attached to computers to have a relax with heli with as easy possible setups!

I would prefer the JR-120BB over either of these, talk about a gyro that was easy to set up and held like a well to tell the truth, limp noodle actually, but hey, they were easy to set up!

What are you getting back into the slime machines for?

Been a while since we talked, I'm in Japan this week and next, when I get back home I'll give you a call.

I have used both gyros.
601 worked really good!
Solid G worked better!!
Solid G is newer on the technology side as well.
Solid G is very user friendly when setting it up and already has several models/servo types preprogramed into the unit. Just needs the Gview to select them.
syl is correct on the pirouette rate being more consistant.

All in all the Solid G is a kick asz gyro!

The Freya is not a preset, the BLS251 you just use the 9251/9256, same speed as the BLS251.

The heli presets are:
Evo50
Vibe 50
Raptor 50
T600E
T600N
Synergy

You can try the EVO 50 model for your freya. The BLS251 is also not preset, but there is no difference in the singal for the 251 and the 9251/9256.

Love my solid g for its hold and piro consistency.

As we can see all helis are 50 class size. I'm wondering if this gyra is enough fast and good for 90 class with F3C fuse

Its definately more than good enough for a 90size, but I am not sure if you will like it for F3C. The thing(and only thing) that I dislike about this gyro is the tail wiggling on spool up that appears to be more severe than most other gyros, or maybe its just me.

I have seen this on mine and completely took the wiggle out by replacing the tail rotor assembly with a Quick UK tail rotor assembly. Just food for thought.

Here is the Solid G at work in both F3C and 3D

kennyS, I am not referring to the wiggling of the tail grip cause by the thrust bearing or looseness in the tail grip. I am referring to the left right swing of the tail on spooling up. It is like the tail wants to go left then right very strongly when the heli is spooling up. I get that problem with both my raptor and 700N. No offense, but are you sure the quick uk tail rotor can fix that?

Zyklon, when spooling up just give a touch of right yaw and the wiggle and spin will be gone.

No sweat man. This is just like a meeting of the minds. Sometimes it takes more then one to find the answer

With my T600 & T700 they both had a wiggle in the tail rotor. It was really noticeable once the tail had some rpm. Problem with mine was, once it started the "wiggle" it never stopped. The Quick UK tail grips did help that, but your right in the fact that I was addressing problems with the thrust bearings/looseness in the tail grips.

baddraptor is right on what he said. I also have to give it a bit to stop the spin.

I think I know what you mean, I got in the habit of resetting the gyro after I carried the heli from the pits when I used a GY601. When I switched to the Super G, I couldnt do that, so instead I feather the tail rotor with rudder while its spooling up to center the tail rotor blades to prevent what your talking about.

I find the Super G more piro consistant, I was having a problem with this when I used the GY601. I will say though, for me, when I went with the recommended setup on my 600N, the tail was wicked fast and I had to slow it down a bunch. It also was too sensitive around center for me, I initially used expo to correct this but found a setting with the G-View to correct it instead.
