Hey, noob,
if you dont have anything to put the other one one, I have a 500, I would gladly try it out on.

it would be a nice addition to the Hobbymate motor. Its pink, but it works great! Been a hobbymate fan ever sense I got the HB-2835 and so I had to get one for my 500 as well.

My 450 Pro kit just came in the Mail

I'm waiting on some equipment I ordered to install it on. 

Once all the equipment I need comes in I will begin the build.  with plenty of pictures of course.  Stay tuned folks.

Grawly, once I test both gyros out, I will gladly send one out to you for review .  Thanks for your interest!

Tuan

Nice! How does it handle piro stops? Any bounce? Can any servo delay be programmed into the gyro?

I havent fully test the gyro yet grawly.   That was just the maiden, checking the blade tracking and making sure everything was ok.  I did flew it yesterday and everything went well.  lowered my gain a couple of clicks and the wag disappeared.  no bounce , or wag after a piro stop.  Still tweaking my brand new heli for a bit then I'll thrash it around for good measure.    Will report back soon.

update: 

very impressed with this new gyro from hobbymate.  works just as well as the spartan quark.  setup is very similar as well.  Tail is holding rock solid .

I had an early issue with it.  Tail would bounce after a piro.  Solution:  move the ball on the tail servo in from 10mm to 7.5mm out. 

I'm enjoying this gyro so much I decided to build a second trex 450 pro to put in.  .[8D]
