Right now, the 520 is cheaper Ben the 401
the 401 WAS a great gyro,but its now outdated.why would anyone pay MORE money for outdated cant set individual endpoints and it doesn't support the new gen of high speed servos.whats the point of buying a 150.oo dollar high speed digital servo if you are not getting full performance out of it.It would make sense if the 401 has come down in price but for some reason it seems to have not.Electronics can stay with you from heli to heli.Having a great performing tail makes learning MUCH easier,buy a new generation gyro/servo be done and start learning to fly

That is why I recommended a used GP750, super simple, cheap and works great.
It works better than a GY401 in every respect.

Read the posts, many have good luck with the GY520, but there are lots with issues. Mine had issues.

the 401 is a good gyro but i agree it needs to come down in price. the price of the 401 has been the same for the last 5 years. 5 years ago i paid £110pounds and its still £110pounds and for that price there is alot of choice of gyros out there to pick from. maybee futaba will just do away with the 401 insteed of droping the price futaba are just like that for some reason they dont like to give us helimen a bargin.
