Power switches were commonplace with spinning mass gyros. It shut down the motor and its current consumption till you got ready to fly.-----

OH boy I remember when you either had to own a Oil Well or Know some one at NASA to even get one. We just looked at the pictures

Then if you even borrowed one - with the additional weight you couldn't even lift off till you burned a partial tank off. Then your menially battery was about dead.

We just kept the truck between us and the helicopter

Prior to the Foo -Sheild

Best radio we had used a Y -Connector and left hand rotation servos

That's the darn thing I would always forget to flip on in my hurry to fly. Gyroless tails are very touchy even with revolution mixing set perfectly.Heli-itis sufferer.

Ditto, I still have one in a Schluter Magic. Turn it on and wait for the whine to begin.Walk on water long enough, eventually you will get your feet wet.
