Default Piezo Gyros

Hi Mat, I was looking at the prices on all the available gyros and the y tended to be sort of pricey. I had the pleasure to fly a friends airplane equipped with a hobbico gyro in a 15 - 20 mile per hr wind and it worked perfectly and was adjustable from the transmitter. However I did buy a GWS airplane servo from Balsa Products in New Jersey ( e-mail www.balsapr.com) ,for $60.00 US and installed it on the rudder of my Tecate bipe, which is like flying a bag of snakes, and it kept the plane straight as a die in a full 15mph crosswind. Try one and see. If U like it then buy a more expensive one which can be adjusted from the radio. Good luck . Jack F AMA 8093

The JR 450 is a good choice.
