Just wondering what gyro and tail servo combo most of you are using in your gassers. I have a few gassers. Most of them have a 401 with a 9254 servo. I also use a GV-1 and a Stator Gator.
I am not into 3D, so this setup works for me.
I recently got a good deal on a Radikal 20 kit. Not FBL.and need a gyro and tail servo. Should i stay with what the 401? I know there are newer and better gyros out there, I just haven't kept up with whats new. Thanks.

Spartan DS-760 gyro and futaba bls-251 servo currently.. This combo has worked the best for me. Also had good luck with the JR8900G tail servo.

I have a JR 8900/770 gyro setup on a nitro. It holds just fine flying backwards in the wind. I wouldn't hesitate to put it on a gasser.
But that being said,I have a 401/9254 on my helibug. I try to be more careful with my gasser,and don't fly backwards very often. So the 401 does just fine for me.
But with everybody going flybarless those 770's are going mighty cheap.
The 8900 servos aren't though. But you would probably want to go with a new one anyway.

"I am not into 3D, so this setup works for me. "

Just about anything newer will work for you including the 401 w 9254.

Many gyros can be pick up cheap now a days.
Stay away from JR gyros, they work but are a nightmare to set perfect.

The DS-760 spartan, the Mini G, or Futaba gy520 using a BLS251 will last forever. I use the gy520 in my precision helis.

I have to disagree. I have 2 770's. One with an 8900 servo and one with a 8700 servo. They are no harder to setup than a 401. I think I even have the gain set close to the same as a 401. You just have to read (follow) the instructions They need very high exponential. 60 or 70% is where I run mine.

401 with a Hyperion DS20X-GCD on a Radikal G20 HD

Couldn't be happier, holds it rock steady at 75% and the Hyperion servo is a piece of cake to program and center with the USB programmer! It was $50 and the programmer was around $17. Also, you'll need to make a rig to feed the. Servo power while programming.

I'm starting on gassers with the Radikal g20. I stripped my Spartan Quark and JR 8900 tail servo from one of my nitros. At a half gallon so far, which is quite a few hovers and slow forward flights the tail is holding perfect.
