Gyro of choice in FAI/F3C community?
What are the preferred gyros being used? Is the GY520 gaining popularity?

I'd say gainED. It's exceptionally good.

I would say 80% of us were flying the 520 at the recent contest in Melbourne, FL?

I have 2 SL720's, whilst I'm not a particularly good pilot, I can't help feeling they could be a little more user friendly and easier to set up.

G7000t with MP80G here for FAI.
Solid-G and Mini-G need some tweaking before they feel soft and smooth as G7000t. But for performace/price, I'd go Mini-G

My 2 cents.

I've replaced the Solid G with a 520 in the past week.

I can honestly say the 520 is the better gyro. Especially the consistency of a pirouette while on the move in the hovering routine. 10/10

NOT saying that the Solid G was a bad gyro at all!
Concentrate on your weaknesses and your strengths will reward you!

LMAO The last one I got was off ebay. There' nothing like getting a gyro for ten bucks.

Man that 153BB was a real good gyro, for its time. It even performed very well for 3d. Backwards and sidewars flight was a breeze. This was the time then you had to work a little. right gary?

I use a Spartan DS760 in my FAI ship, so those do the work as well.

Nah, that's a 152, the best Futaba made prior to the 153BB.
