    Snap rolls with gyros?

    I have couple questions for β€œsnap rolls” experts and the pilots who is using GYROs while performing aerobatics:

    1) What if I will setup 3 gyros (like Futaba GYA431/GYA430) on ruder, elevator and as an option on ailerons?

    Let’s assume I will bring the plane to β€œstart” position for snap roll (nose up 45 degree) and start applying ONLY ailerons (w/o ruder and elevator).

    Question: Will be ruder and elevator gyros do the job to keep plane in a good position to continue snap roll only by applying ailerons input and maintaining throttle input?


    2) For snap roll in general => Will be it is better to remove β€œforce generators” from the wing ends in order to easy off snap roll figure for the plane?

    Thank you,
    Andrei K.

    RE: Snap rolls with gyros?

    I don't know why you would post this in the IMAC forum. IMAC pilots do not use gyros to fly any manuevers, firstly, because it would be illegal, secondly, because it would be unethical.

    RE: Snap rolls with gyros?

    K-Bob,

    Nothing wrong with asking or answering. It doesn't mean anyone is competing illegally or being unethical. I have seen many people want to know how to modify their motors to get more speed and ask pylon racers how to do it. It doesn't mean those that answer are cheaters. Silly. You over reacted.

    I never said that anyone who answered is a cheater. Please show me where I said that. Use the quote option.

    Now let's get even sillier: I never said that you "said" anyone who answered is a cheater. I did not quote you. I do not like eggs. I do not like green eggs and ham.

    RE: Snap rolls with gyros?

    You may want to try posting this in the Radio section. It seems the aerobatics guys are hyper sensitive (big surprise) to offer any ideas they may have, from all of those years practicing to be perfect. Gyro is a bad word in this area of the website. Kind of like starting a thread about putting a swastika on your warbird. Unfortunately, you must choose your words wisely depending on where you are in the website.
    I would love to offer any experience I have, but I do not have any experience with gyros either. I am sure you will find some answers though. Just not here.

    RE: Snap rolls with gyros?

    I'd imagine that a computer mix could shut off the gyro or turn the gain down when the snap roll switch is flipped?

    No, without pilot input the rudder and elevator gyros would command those surfaces to hold the airplane's pitch and yaw where it's at, and not allow the plane to autorotate during the snap.
