I've got a NIB Spartan that I'd like to trade for a GY520. I would prefer a NIB 520 also, but it's not necessary. If you want a little more money for a trade, let me know.

Why Downgrade to a 520?

Have you flown a 520, Jag?

I have both and IMO the 520 is just as good if not better.

Yeah...
Tried the 520.......My opinion is that the Spartan does feel a bit better in hard piro moves like piro funnels and hard piro flipping etc... and the Spartan sure is simple to set and it just works...

Not knocking the 520...I just prefer the spartan...for me it would be a downgrade

here is someone who has had both on the same heli.

http://www.crackroll.com/forums/showthread.php?p=14571

here is what he said.

this is from post #12

Holy cow....Futaba GY 520 + 9254 tail servo+ light 6s Protos 500= Happy Aaron!!!

more info and video coming in a day or two.... but WOW!!!

I have flown my Protos on a Spartan and a JR 770, they both worked really well, but this was bing bang boom baby, I'm rockin' and the tail has never worked this well for me..... I'll fill you in on the whole thing with a vid so you can make up your own mind.

Spartan /520
So I guess because someone on another forum said it was better then the 520 must be better

I'm not asking anyone to believe me...I was simply stating my opinion..and yes...I set it up...same heli ..different gyros..

same moves with me at the sticks...I feel the spartan is slightly better..can you tell me why Futaba would sell a gyro CHEAPER than the 611 if it's better?

Everyone knows the Spartan has it all over the 611's...I used to be a 611 user myself..

Sounds like we have some die hard Futaba fans here...unbiased opinions are more useful....

exactly my point, you should state that it is your oppinion, not just just straight up say it is a down grade. your just another person on a forum, just like this guy, but he has a vid. people will see what you put, and see it is coming from a good source and be discouraged from buying one.

After you take into account the $120 servo the 611 comes with the gyro itself is not much more than the 520. Plus the seperate amp has to account for a large part of the cost!

Never tried a spartan yet but I wouldn't give up my 520.
Will have to try Spartan for myself one day and compare.
The 250 would be a great machine to do so on..

I love the Spartan
Don't get me wrong guys. I LOVE the Spartan. It's the only gyro that I use on my helis. I just wanted to give the 520 a try that's all, and I have 2 Spartans laying around. I like the idea of a smaller gyro without all the wires like the Spartan does.

Allright, just get a vstabi, you'll forget all about all these gyros being argued about lol. That being said I do have a NIB 520 for sale I will be posting it in a few days as it was an extra for a heli I am not longer going to build, well actually sold it as a NIB heli....

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