So let's say I use the GY520. Will his PC User interface be able to access the GY520 gain setting? This gyro is very different than a GY401.

I would say as long as it can be remotely controlled from the TX that it should be able to find it and work fine ,, but let me do the other check we pmed about for you before you order any more ..

I am using 401 because I had 3 in other helis that I wanted an excuse to upgrade them to something else ... so the 401's will be sacrificed to the V-22

you may want to save some cash and try 3 401 b's. my friend runs them on 2 of his birds and has not noticed a difference compared to his gy 401. I've tied it on my 500 and although I'm not flying circuits tail first, i have found them to be pretty decent. i even have on on my hobby king hell cat's ailerons....which make the bird flyable. they program just like a gy401 and are $13.00 each. The only draw back that I've heard about them is that they may not acclimatize as well as the gy401's do, so you may have to keep your bird out side for a bit in the winter so that they reach the air's temp.

To late .. already pulled the trigger on some spartan quarks .. I have had good luck with these and they are easy to setup and small for some of my smaller birds and also in scale applications

So that would n't have been a problem

The Rotormast controller does the gain controls for all 3 gyros through the pc user interface program .The heading hold or normal switching can be done on your TX ... but it is done for all 3 . You start the motors , spool up and just as you get about ready to lift off you can then switch all 3 into HH ... something about HH on the ground that makes the gyros hunt and that makes the ground resonance all the worse if trying to spool up in HH mode

Now will the pc user interface access the 502 ... dont' know as I have never messed with one ,but if you can change the HH and non HH mode ... with the TX ... then I am guessing that it should work since the same aux channel is what changes it in the 401 and I can't see futaba changing that much in their setup language .

I received the same email. I hope it ships soon. I have my two scorpion motors and the two ICE 50's ready to go. I am going to use three 401's from other heli's I have for a start. I also need the four servos.

Default It's here and it looks FANTASTIC!

It's here and by some odd luck I was home at lunch when the postman arrived. It required a signature.

I can tell you at fist look, I'm favorably impressed with the kit! Had to get back to the office. More later.

The profile fuse is a laminated foam board. VERY sturdy! The picture doesn't do it justice. It has the all of the panel lines impressed in it. Looks great.

I won't be around this weekend. Goin camping.

I started selectively opening some of the parts bags to check out the quality. From what I see the parts are super high quality. I was initially concerned because of the China sourcing. The level of quality is up there with the best. All of the metal parts show no machine marks and no excessive deburring. The anodizing is smooth with dark consistent color. All anodizing is black.

The G10 nacelle frames are machined not stamped. The cut quality is excellent. I haven't done any fit checking but they look great.

The wings and tail pieces are built up, laser cut plywood internal framing with what looks to be balsa covering. The paint work is very good. I see no need for prep work on the wings and tail assemblies.

It comes with six carbon fiber blades. The blades look flawless.

At this point, just looking the ship over I gotta say Tom Mast and company really did a nice job with this model. I personally have a special interest in this model because I have been involved with the full scale Osprey since 1985. To see this turned into a truly well designed working Osprey is real treat for me.

This is going to be a fun build. Can't wait to build up the nacelles. I love this type of machine building.

Can't wait to see the fuselage. That's coming later.

Moving along on the build. Nacelle mechanics almost complete.

Not bad for a bicopter ... would like to see more detailed pictures of your setup .
These foam planes have allowed a lot of success in the bicopter area as you don't have the heavy tail hanging out the back making a hard to control moment arm .
