Default Gyro TTX 850

Hi folks,

Okay I am brand new to this radio TX850 and gyro systems so I have a couple of questions.

I want to know if I can use a gyro on a large scale 85" gasoline powered airplane? If so what model should I be looking for? What limitations or issues should I be aware of? What benefits will be gained. I think it would be nice to have the ability to use a Gyro if possible.

Thank you!!

First off, the gyro is independent of the transmitter, other than you may have a gain channel that you'll want to operate off of a knob or slider.

For any model airplane, a gyro would be used if it has tricky handling characteristics during takeoff and landing. The gyro will "tame" the tail so that any groundlooping tendencies are reduced to being manageable. If the model doesn't have any handling problems, a gyro really isn't needed.

The question isn't so much about the transmitter, but the model. If the models needs, or you desire, a gyro, then you install one. The transmitter may or may not be useful to helping you adjust the gyro's gain.

Thank you Bill so does it matter if the plane is gas, glow or electric?

Not at all. The system that powers the propeller has nothing to do with gyros for adding stability.
