Default Nitros older 1400mm Airfield P-40

Had a veteran pilot maiden my p-40 for me today as I didn't feel confident to do it yet an had an issue, I'd installed a 3 axis stabilizer, the one pictured, plane went "bat $h/t crazy" the minute it was airborne, obviously it's not compatible with the older AR6000, pilot was able to get it down in one piece but striped one of the retracts. Tested the plane from a distance with an without the stabilizer an the right aileron just flaps up an down with it, not using or trying those again till I upgrade my radio, anyway, where can I get replacement landing gear for the plane. Thanks.

Gyro's are independent from the receiver used, unless its a receiver/gyro combo unit.
My bet is that the gyro wasnt calibrated properly.
Some gyros can only be placed in one certain direction in the plane. Any other direction and the control surfaces are trying to compensate in the opposite direction they should.
You also need to play with the gain on each channel to find the sweet spot for your plane.
Start with the lowest settings and slowly try higher and higher settings till it get a little squirly. Turn back down to last good position and you're good to go.

I set the gyro up just like the instructions said an left it on low rates, we tested it an as you give the plane throttle the right aileron would go up an down, the more throttle the more it would flap. I'd rather not get into a discussion on gyros though as I'd just like to find a replacement retract. Thanks
