Hi to all, been flying a blade cx 2 contra bladed heli to get to grips with flying but now i have a T-rex 450 x ( old hde model )came as a kit with b/l motor, esc and a Robbe g-200 piezo gyro.
I have been told this gyro won,t be no good for a learner as its a standard gyro and to get a heading hold gyro, can someone help me on this to know what to use please,many thanks.

I would suggest you consider the GY401 by futaba. This stick perfectly under the rear tail boom holder at the back of the frames.
I would also suggest you consider spending a little bit more on a servo than a basic one as this does make on heck of a difference.
You might not be doing hard backwards flight etc, but just for hovering about, the feel of this combination is nailed on rails.
The 9650 Mini digital servo is the one we use and it is perfectly matched..

Si smilie
