Exclamation Gyro's

I was thinking about installing a gyro in one or two of my aircraft (possible FPV) ( http://www.hobbypartz.com/esbecp3dcche.html ) project. My question is this, when using flaperons (yes two servos) how would I hook it up?
Normal setup is quite easy using one servo for both ailerons (no flaperons).

Any help is appreciated,..........

You would need two gyros, one for each of the two ( independent ) aileron channels. To my knowledge there are no gyros designed to augment two independent servo channels operating in the same ( in this case row ) axis.

That is what I needed,... Thanks
would there be an issue with using two? Would they fight each other or should I give up the extra servo?

never mind I get it,...

They would act independently but would effectively work in concert. I hope that's what you got.
