Flew my GY520 in a Stratus this weekend in 15+mph winds. Took out a Spartan to see how the GY520 compares without adjusting anything on the Tx. GY520 felt different at first for two reasons - for a given rudder ATV, you get a higher piro rate with the 520 and the 520 doesn't appear to have default expo like the Spartan. Initial impression therefore was of a very, very responsive tail with a manically high max piro rate.

With lower rudder ATV (100% rather than 125%) and a bit of expo to suit me, I was very happy with this gyro. As reported elsewhere, hold is very strong and piro consistency is excellent (MUCH better than the 611, maybe even better than the Spartan).

Very nice gyro I think. Overall, I found it as good as the Spartan with a slightly more responsive feel to the stick which I liked. I need more stick time with it but I doubt I'll rush to sell my 5 Spartans.

I flew mine for the first time this weekend. It worked very well in the wind and the piro rate was very smooth. However I had to add about 25% (or more) expo as it was very sensitive around center as compared to the 611 that was in it before. I was not expecting that. So that being said, please be sure to READ THE MANUAL it mentions items like expo, what the gyro does during startup. I think it is excellent and saves tons of real estate on my models. I would like to play with the start and stop parameters at some point.

Ditto!! The 520 has a unique feeling on the starts. Stops seemed to be on a dime, but the starts were interesting for me (not in a bad way)

Interestingly, when you max out the piro rate, it appears as though you surpass the gyros limits of 800 degrees per second. At this point, the gyro no longer controls the piro rate. Try this. Max out the piro rate ATV take it waaay up on knife edge and begin the piros on the way down. It will begin to whip and lag after falling some distance. Just my personal observation. Not sure if this is what is technically happening since the piros are so friggen fast you couldn't keep up anyway.

Walk on water long enough, eventually you will get your feet wet.

Has one of you tried the 520 on bigger helis like 90 and bigger gas helis?
Will it hold the big birds? Maybe this will be the inheritor of the 401 gyro.

They way i setup mine
I usually make sure that i have 100 % on ATV, and mechaniclly the tail is setup. Then i use the AFR rate from 100% up or down for the amount of PIRO rate that i want in a certain condition.

I did add Expo in normal mode, but i like the feel of fast tail response in other modes.

That is using a Futaba Radio.

Mine was great from the start and continues to be so today.

As noted, do not expect your 611 set up to work the same for this gyro. Set it up as you would for any new piece of equipment to get the feel you desire, and you'll be most pleased. And please don't assume that 37% is the right gain to use by default, here, either.

Bounce and Drift
I like the way the 520 feels but I have noticed a small amount of drift i can't seem to get rid of and I have a lot of bounce back with hard tail moves. That being said, i have it on a Trex 450 so the bird is part of the problem. Does anyone have some DX7 settings to post for a 520 on a 450?

ok guys, I need some help..i'm trying to help a buddy with the 520, but having an issue we can't figure out. when he does climbouts, the tail wants to whip out. its over-correcting for the torque of the blades. in fwd. flight, its rock solid.

can any one help me out?

Thanks, Jeff B.

Run the 520 in F3C mode. 3D mode will give you too hard of a stop and cause the whip back movements you are seeing.

I had a chance to fly a Caliber 90 with GY520 and BLS251.
This gyro is AWESOME! It does exactly what you want. Stops are sharp!! and what caught my attention is the piro consistency!!
Simply OUTSTANDING
