I'm new to R/C helos but have lots of fixed wing
experience. I have been practicing on the Great
Planes G2 Flight sim and I am comfortable flying
the helo simulators.
I have a Ikarus Eco 8 with Ikarus gyro. I have
fiddled with the gain and sens setting and the
tail rotor servo rate setting on the radio (Futaba
9CHP). I am always having to make rotor
corrections as the helo spins one way or the other
I have flown the Eco 8 about 10 times and have had
minor crashes 3 times. Each time repairs were
simple. I attribute all the crashes to the fact
that the helos will not track straight.
Will a Futaba heading hold gyro make a great
