GY 401 rudder gyro an Gasser helicopters ??
I have heard and read that the futaba 401 gyro was great for gassers with zenoah engine , , I know not for flybar less set ups , but for a flybar head and gasser like for scale helis , ,, i have heard that the 401 was less sensitive to vibrations from the engine especially when breaking a new engine , rich needle settings ,,, ONE THING , WHEN USING THE 401 GYRO ON A GASSER ,,, WHAT IS THE BEST SERVO TAPE TO MOUNT IT , STOCK MOUNTING TAPE THAT COMES WITH IT ,,,, OR IS THERE SOME BETTER MOUNTING TAPE? i am getting back into gassers after 13 years away from the hobby ,,, I have a New TRM .270 I am breaking , in ,,, I have new Futaba 750 gyro , and curious if the 750 rudder sensor is too sensitive for the gasser

Yes, the 401 can run on a 6.0 volt battery back, it was the stock servo that could not take 6.0 volts, so you put a step-down between the gyro and servo, when runing a 6.0 volts setup with a 401.P.S. sorry for the spelling or the grammar I am dyslexic!

I don't understand why you wouldn't want to use the 750. It is one of the most vibration resistant gyros out there. Just hard mount it and go flying. In combo with a bls it is amazing.

I agree the 750 works great, you already have it there put in on and you have a governor also.

I have just built 2 gassers both running 6.6v life batteries direct using all savox servos non HV versions I am using 2272,1256,1257,1258 and 1 has a gy701 no problems at all, the other has a gy401 same again no probs at all. I would stick with the cgy750 enjoy it :-).

Good luck
