I have just acquired a JR 10X and now in the Process of choosing a gyro to go with the 10X and my MA Gasser... The 2 I am most looking at are the JR G7000T W/ 8700 servo or The Curtis Youngblood Solid G Gyro w/ G-View display... I like the Solid G due to the G-View display to help in programming... but from what I heard is that if I use the JR G7000T with a 10 than its just like having G-View but for the JR and display is on the TX... True or not true ??? any help in making a decision will greatly help in getting my bird in the air sometime soon... Thanks in advance Roland / Ikaika808

Solid G
I have the Solid G and G view. It is nice for setting up everything but once that is done you will put it away until you need to make some changes. The Solid G has several Heli types that give you a preset configuration. There is no Spectra option but there are two or three that will get you up and running. Additionally you can tweak any of the settings to your needs. I am running the BLS digital servo with it. I had a 401 Gyro that I thought was broken when it was on my 1005 gasser. I took the gyro out and tested it in a Furion 450. Holds perfect and works as if it were charmed.

I have used the JR7000 in two helis, Spectra and Stratus and it worked great. I started to see trouble with the servo and since it is part of the 7000(different lead/plug) I could not switch it out. I am now using a JR770 in the Stratus which is working well. I tried one in the Spectra and could not get it to work right. I have installed a Solid G in the Spectra and so far it seem to be doing good. Dave

I had the 7000 in my first Predator, which I sold.

It's a good Gyro, but now I prefer either the JR G7703D or Spartan DS760. Both have no display/amp unit to have to find a place to mount and both work great, provided you use the zeal tape to mount them!

I purchased a Futaba GY520 Gyro for my Spectra-G, tiny little thing. I wonder who will make one smaller?

Just another crappy day in Paradise....Aloha!

Go for the G (solid or mini). Once you get the G view you can use it with the next curtis gyros and other stuff such as the ATG.
JR have never been on top of the world with their gyros
