Hey guys, I saw that the Gyrobot isn't badly priced and and curious about it. I heard from a buddy of mine it wasn't a bad system, but I want to hear from you guys and anyone who has used it. It doesn't look like its a bad model. If you know of anyone or you have used it yourself, please let me know what you think. Thanks!

I tested one for a couple weeks on my Caliber 50 with great results. It's not quite as plug n play as say a Vbar, but it is a very capable and good flying system.

It's great, I've had the Vbar, GB 700, and FS600. So far I like the Gyrobot the best. I like the feel of it in the air better than the V-bar (although setup isn't nearly as simple). I haven't got much time on the FS600, so I can't really say where it stands.

What makes it more difficult then the Vbar? Is it frustrating to setup?

No, it's easy, just follow the instructions. On a Vbar you click a box on your computer and tell it to trim for you, and to learn how you like to fly and it will just set itself up. You actually have to adjust values yourself to get it to fly the way you like on the gyrobot.

How much is the gyrobot now? It used to be $200 more than the V-bar.

When I bought mine it was around $425, that was about a year ago. I'm wondering if you're not thinking of the Gyrobot 900, that is about $200 more.

They are still about $420 USD. I am running this on my Roxxter 55 and it is just plain awesome.

Gyrobot 700
I used to fly all Vbars for a while...then I started playing with the Gyrobots...and then dumped all my Vbars to go with Gyrobots.

I find the Gyrobot Extremely simple to set up...easier to me than vbar...but for a beginner the vbar would be simpler for sure ..once you get used to adjusting the gyrobot you can set up and have a new machine dialed in almost perfectly in about 5 minutes of flying.

sometimes the vbar can take forever to dial in perfectly...even with 4.0

I am not a hardcore stick banging 3d type...but I throw it around pretty well and I have to say the Gyrobot seems to work very well...the vbar does a little better in the Crack type stuff because the Gyrobot tends to dampen out the super fast inputs...but other than that the gyrobot flies very well.

Cost wise it's about the same or a little less than the vbars...but you also don't get the built in RX sat/RX capability.

Right now I have about 6 gyrobot 700's in use...

just my .02$

The worst thing about the GyroBot is the Manual. You need to read it a few times to get what it is actually saying. So, it can be very frustrating for a first time user.

Once you set one or two up, the GyroBot's are actually very easy to setup and they work great.

I run GyroBot's and Skookum's on my heli's.
