What I've done with Tail Gyros

Had a few tail gyros on hand after I switched to FBL's. So I installed them into this plane.

Note: A gyro won't save you from a crash since all it does is "dampen" unwanted drifting - in an airplane this is represented as unwanted roll, pitch, and yaw. Also, it will not self level the plane. Because it dampens drift, it will in essence make your tiny parkflyer fly like it had more mass - an object that is tough to push around BY the wind.

Alot of purist out there who think gyros are not for rc airplanes. That's pretty close minded in my opinion.

Anyhow please take this as miscellaneous info. Here's more info....

I've also added gyros to a few planes in Real Flight that you can download, and you can find them from the link below:
