    Snap rolls with gyros?

    I have couple questions for “snap 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 “start” 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 “force generators” from the wing ends in order to easy off snap roll figure for the plane?

    Thank you,
    Andrei K.

    Learn to fly and toss the gyro... more fun this way.. IMO...
