This has a Yellow wire on the end that goes to the RX ch 3, just a single yellow wire. Where do I plug this wire in at? I have no clue but I'm sure it goes to something. As with all Hobby King stuff it came without anything, even paper work! Thanks...

I figured it out. Please excuse my dumbness, I'm a new guy so what do you expect!

Don't be so hard on yourself. I'm glad you figured it out on your own. Good for you.

Thanks for the reply Doobieman, seems I'm learning allot with this 450 V.2 as I go. Just think, it may even fly one day when I'm all done, who knows! Credit given also.

Thank you. I gave you a thumbs up, as well. Too many people that come here don't even try, but you? Well, you succeeded on your own. Kudos, my friend. You're my kind of people.

Ok i dont understand anything. Is there a difference between this and a 3 axis gyro? Does this work on planes? Ok, i simply have the hobbyking teksumo (wing with vtail mixer) does this work with that? And does this what i want to auto stabilize and level the plane in all directions?
 r_g_r 1335 points
No, this is a single axis gyro. It is used to stabilize a single axis, e.g. the tail of a helicopter or the yaw of a airplane. If you want full 3-axis stabilization you need to buy an integrated 3-axis stabilizer like e.g. the "OrangeRX RX3S"

Compared to this one: HobbyKing GA-250 MINI-MEMS Gyro What do you say ?
 r_g_r 1335 points
I have used both on my HK450GT helicopter. They both work great as long as you isolate them from vibrations very very good. So you can get any of them, go with what fits you best. I did not notice any big difference in performance in mine.

The gyro is amazing. I used it in the road car model to manage and everything is in perfect order. I recommend this product for its sensitivity and price.

i figured for the price i couldnt resist trying one of these and i am not dissapointed this things works great just as good as my 401 futaba gyro you need to look at the mods section on this as i had to do that but the little time i spent doing the mod was more then made up for with the low price and great performance
