Yeap - Futaba CGY750 set to H4 ccpm with zero value for Collective range.
Outputs - 2 aileron, 2 elevator and 1 rudder output and works like a charm.

Did a search on the idea and i noticed a unit called the Helicox TG1,which looks like the Tarot unit,says it can be used for both helicopters and planes.Thought i would see if anyone has used a FBL unit for this purpose.Thanks for the reply.

On jet aircraft the gyros are great at smoothing out the way it flies, but others are using them on 3D aircraft to assist in vertical hovering.

Eagle Tree Systems is offering the "Guardian" for around US$70. It has both a sport and 3D configuration and matches up well with their POV systems.

I put a Vbar 4.0 on a plank in early 2010. It worked well. Knife edge and torque rolls were hands off. I'm not sure it could be done as easily with the newest Vbar 5.3, but with a little creativity I'm sure anything is possible. If you're considering it, I think it is definitely worth a try.

I spoke with Ranier at IRCHA again this week about using the Vbar on a plank. He seemed excited about it. I'm going to send him my software settings. Who knows, maybe in time the Vbar will have plank software too.
