PLANK GYRO
Hi Gurus,
I have a 30% Christian Eagle 2, it is a large plane, but it has 2 servos on the elevator, 4 on aileron, 1 rudder, what gyro do you recommend ? as most will only accept 1 servo elevator and aileron, i am after a 6 axis gyro, as the eagle is a bye plane i will only use the gyro on the top wing which is the biggest surface area, the little wing below i wont...

so i am after a gyro that can accept 2 servos for aileron and 2 for elevator, failing that i can use my F30A and buy 2 servo reverse signal cables from amazon for £3.00 each..
but i would prefer direct connection to the gyro.

I am no expert and certainly not guru on this but I am very happy with my Vbar Neo controlled jets. To me, the stabilization software in it is very good. My only complaint so far is the trims can not be bank dependent.

since you said this is a big plane so what are the servos your going to put in and what is your estimated AMP draw?

Typically in my case, I plug 2 aileron, 2 elevator, 2 flap and 1 rudder servo in a Neo without problem. All axis can be stabilised by gyro except the flaps of course(you can program the flap servos to follow aileron if you want to).

In my jets for safety reason, I like to put one more Neo as extender and connect the two with a #16 or #14 wire power bus to battery, and plug the flap servos, landing gears, brakes, etc into the extender. This is for the NEOs to share the current draw from the servos and 2 pairs of receiver antenna working at the same time.

I want a gyro as flying a large plank it assists on landing and take off, it stops the wing fluttering, many of the top flyers on 1/4scale 1/3 scale jets and gassers use gyros. I was just looking for something to smoothen out the flight and resist getting buffeted around by wind it also gives 'self levelling' function. I dont use gyros on planes like my Cougar or 90Size Funtana, I wanted some assistance on a bi plane which is massive.All The Best

A fixed heading gyro (heading hold) on the aileron could be an interesting experiment.. maybe a fut401 or similar!

Have done my comps, now just fly for pleasure..
Came away with 14 trophies for Helicopters in scale and F3C,
5 trophies for plane comps scale..
So I now just fly for fun and relaxation.

The only downer of a 401 heli gyro is I need more than 3 axis and more than 1 input,

EEngineer But....

I dont care, i dont fly aerobatics anymore. This thread was never about comp flying, it was advice on a suitable gyro for a large bi-plane. I have no experience with plank gyros, only Helicopters, I know in the old days they would use a gyro on each axis which is what we did for multibladed heads on helies before the FBL units came in..
