If you have not tried this gyro you should! Very small and light weight! I had doubts when putting something the size of a dime on a .50 bird! Works great and easy to program. Great Gyro!!

This is a GREAT gyro. Very detailed and extensive manual make it easy to program and to troubleshoot as well! It keeps my 450 protos locked in with ease in high winds. Its so compact its no issue on a 450, plus it looks nice! :)
