Default Stay away from cheap Gyros

I just finished my first season of flying. I fly a 450 trex clone. I went through two cheap gyros and they both had a little drift in them. Then i got an Align GP750 gyro used for $ 30.00. That was less then i paid for my last cheap gyro. The gyro holds the tail so solid the i can take my finger off the throttle stick. No more leaning on the rudder to hold the tail. I got better at hovering right away. It is amazing to fly my heli and the tail stays where i put it.
Do not be fooled when an ad says that this cheap gyro works great. I top of the line gyro is worth every penny you pay. New or used.
I also use an align tail servo, esc, and main shaft. It' my TREX 450 want a be. My next heli will be a real align trex.

Thanks Tom
