That's exactly what I experienced, I normally coordinate turns with rudder anyway but with the gyro it was essential and you had to use tons of rudder. Possibly i had the gains set to high but to be...

I dont think the Gyro would cause a stall but it could exacerbate a stall and make recovery harder. As you suspect, when the nose drops as the plane stalls the gyro will apply up elevator making the...

I have a HK one but have never fitted it. I have previously used a similar 3 axis stabiliser with mixed results, in the end I took it off because I preferred flying without it.

It did work as...

Yep, I can say it. I have never once had any of those issues (or any issues at all) with 2.4GHz, and no, I'm not 'fibbing'.

With 2.4GHz I've also never been 'shot down' by someone else turning...

Chellie,

You might have been on the 72MHz side in 'the war'.. But face facts, like it or not, the war is over, 2.4GHz won. 72MHz has been replaced by 2.4GHz not because the manufactures wanted to...

What would those 'issues' be? No system is 100% perfect but on balance 2.4GHz is far better than 72MHz ever was. If it were not so why the total switch over to 2.4GHz by every manufacturer without...

dBm is logarithmic, I think that roughly speaking each 3Dbm change represents a doubling or halving of power.

91-41 = 50

50/3 = 16.7

2^16.7 = 104031

So that would mean that the range test...

Yes, quite good but as Nigel say's a little dated now.

To be honest though, I dont think anyone new to the hobby give a passing thought to a comparison between 72MHz with 2.4GHz. Newbies would...

Nigel,

Like most things, it's complicated. As I understand it the total transmitted power limit is the same at 100mW for all 2.4GHz protocols.
However there are different rules for DSSS...

100mW is the maximum total 2.4GHz transmitting power (in the EU), regardless of signal protocol used. It's simply a measure of the radiated power from the antenna, signal coding makes no difference....

Yes, you might well be right with the 9XR... 'If' the basic channels for the main stick outputs are assignable then that would get around the problem.

Cant do that with Ultra-Micros as the OP is talking about, as they have integrated 'brick' type receiver/ESC/servo units that don't come in Futaba flavour.
