View Full Version : Gyro options for Dragonus II

10-06-2009, 09:56 AM
I must be out of my mind. I just pre-ordered a Dragonus II 450 kit from Hobby People.

I have been heli-free for going on 2 years now with no symptoms at all. I was sure I was cured and then all of a sudden - bang - Ive got the bug again!

I had a Maxir and a Logo 10 and a Logo 20 but never got beyond flying simple aerobatics. Definitely no 3D.

Anyway, I have all the electronics I need to get it into the air except for the gyro. Ive only used Futaba 401's to date. I can pick up a used 401 for around $80 or so but I wouldnt mind getting something less expensive IF there is a cheaper option that holds really well.

Im on a budget but I dont want to mess with anything that doesnt work pretty darn good. I'll save up for the 401 if need be.

So, if there are any good, less expensive gyros out there let me know.

Please dont bother suggesting anything from Hobby City. I dont/wont buy from them. If its available from someone else thats fine.


Oh - anyone know of a heli's anonymous group? ;)
