I have a gy401 that will stop allowing my rudder servo to function when it takes a notion. I believe that I damaged it by trying to run a 5 cell battery. Can these be fixed or am I better off looking to purchase another gyro.
thanks
Jeff

Forget it. There are some great used gyro deals on here as a result of people converting to FBL and having excess gyros.

Gyro or servo
I agree with Dr. Don. You might check the servo. The Gyros are more resistant to high voltage than the servos. Most step downs or voltage regulars are run between the gyro and the servo. Mark

I tried a gy 240 that I had off an older mx450 and the tail worked well. No tail hunting after a rudder imput and no servo lockup. Any recommendations on a new gyro?
thanks
Jeff

I like the Youngblood Mini-G. You should be able to find a good used one on here for $75 or less. If not, PM me; I have several in my spares box.

There is nothing wrong with the 401 as long as you are not flying 3D or doing much with backwards flight, but it is old technology. Since you are replacing it I would go with newer technology.
