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?

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 1334 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.

Does this gyro work on deltawings?
 shmuel 113 points
on delta wings each one of 2 aileron connect to a different servo. you can't connect one gyro on both 2 servos.but if you put 2 gyros each 1 on 1 servo it will work

Awesome little gyro. Just make sure sensor is exactly parallel to the main board and hot-glued in place. 4F5FF23E-9D66-4056-A6D7-B03DCC8FF32F

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
