Default Gyros

I have recently purchased a Nexus 30 to learn with. It came with a Heli-Max micro piezo gyro. I am being told that I need to get a Futaba 401 gyro. I need info on the diferences and why to change.

I am just beginning with helicopters and have a limited budget for add-ons.

Thanks in advance

You dont "need" one, but it will make life easier. The combo is 185 from Ricks http://www.ronlund.com or Heliproz http://www.heliproz.com

A rate gyro like the little helimax will dampen tail movements but it reacts poorly to changes in torque when you add power or take power away and you will always be chasing the tail. To get that gyro tweaked in you need to play with something called REVO mixing that adds a bit of tail rotor when you add power and takes it away when you come off the power.

A 401, properly set up, will hold the tail rock solid, even in a speedy cross wind or flying backwards or whatever. Its a good investment and will move up to a better heli if you stick with it and move up to a Raptor or EVO

Glad to help. I went through a few Nexuses (nexui?) so let me know if you have any more questions.
