HobbyEagle RC Airplane Gyros / Flight Stabilizers
HobbyEagle gyros (sometimes called flight stabilizers) are easy to use, inexpensive and really enhance the flight characteristics of RC aicraft. HobbyEagle gyros can be used in virtually any RC airplane or drone. The advantages to using a HobbyEagle gyro in your RC airplane are better performance in windy and blustery days, easier landings on days when crosswind landings are unavoidable, and more consistent elevator, aileron and rudder response independent of airspeed.
A gyro is installed between the receiver and the control surface servos. When enabled, a gyro dampens and stabilizes the air frame. Some HobbyEagle gyros have "heading hold" mode, which means the gyro will command the servos to move the control surfaces just enough to attempt to keep the aircraft in a particular heading until a stick command is given from the pilot to change course. Hobby Eagle also has 6-axis gyros that can "right" the aircraft if the pilot loses control or orientation of the aircraft; this mode is called auto-recovery.
Initial setup and calibration is extremely important when using gyros in RC Airplanes, luckily HobbyEagle gyros come with easy to follow setup instructions. As an added guide, Motion RC has setup and demonstration videos on the product page of each gyro.
