Well, I just sold my GY401 I was going to put in the Protos CF. I now need a new Gyro, but can't decide between the Spartan and the Mini G.

I already have a Solid-G (and the G-View) in the T-Rex 500, but as the Solid-G is more suited to nitro helis, I always had small wag problems, although it's almost perfect now.
It seems the Mini-G works on all helis (like the spartan), and more suited to electric.

I will use an INO-Lab HG-D261HB Gyro Servo at 6V.
I like to try different things, and around here nobody has CY gyros (and I already have the G-View display to go with it).
Will the Mini-G perform as well as the proved Spartan in the Protos?

Thank you.

Go for the Spartan
The Spartan is SO SIMPLE to set up...and it works a slight bit better than the Solid G's in my opinion..

I love the Solid G's...but they do require a lot more setup than the spartans...You can have a Spartan flying perfectly in about 5 minutes flat..

Obviously depending on the tail servo. A 9257 no matter how smooth the tail linkage will never beat a full size servo like a BLS251. And the spartan will have to deal with it too.

I have no idea about the INO-Lab HG-D261HB but make sure its fast and relatively strong.

Inolab 261 and Spartan: great combo on my Protos. Really like it. 80 flights so far, Holds great, perfect stops in both directions.

Life is meaningful flying helis.

fwiw..

Spartan/9257 all the way...Light weight, easy setup, nearly impossible to blow out...
PS....Stock t/r blades work best, especially if you like to auto....

I never said it would blow out (I don't remember blowing out a tail with a spartan on it, ever) but somehow I feel a stronger servo should be there.

Well, why not go 220 all the way instead of 120V.

gotta agree with eeeeky, I was less then impressed with my mini G on Protos, the 520 right now I feel is the best gyro.

...Once upon a time there were Nitros, flybars and frequency pins...
