Default Can you use one channel to power two gyros?

With a GY48V can you set the gain on the ground without using a channel to adjust gain? Then use a y connector to power two gyros using them as rate gyros? You can tell I know nothing about gyros.

Most gyros will default to a mode and be unsettable to user setting without a sense connected.

Connecting via Y lead should work - but as you have realised - the problem is sense / setting up.

Have you tried Y lead for the sense leads to the aux ch and y lead for control ch ? It may work.

If I was to fit two gyros to my PKJ ... I would have to find a way to control the sense of both and I would try a y lead to my 5th Aux ch.

It's questions like this that get a lot of us further down the road ... and there are people out there that know the answer - c'mon guys - spill the beans - let us know how to do it ?
