Default Gyro no longer required on a nitro?

I was building a cart on the Mikado website for a Glogo and noticed that there isn't an option to add a Vbar with Gyro, only the NEO link. Has it improved so much (since 6 years ago when I last flew nitro) that it's no longer a real necessity?

Of course you do need an FBL system, maybe the package does include a NEO FBL system

I think DavidLD is referring to the older style vbar's with the external gyro sensor. To answer your question DavidLD, yes I believe the neo is all you need as the gyro is already built in, not exactly sure as to what updates needed to purchase to activate the internal gyro as I know the neo's come in different versions of functions. I don't fly neo so another mikado user can confirm but as I understand it all of the new neo's are all the same but have different upgrade options, they also have a port where you can plug in an external gyro but again from what I understand its not entirely necessary.

Sorry if my question wasn't clearly written. This is what I meant ^

When I last flew in approx 2013, it was a similar situation but with older model units, Vbars and Vbars with the external gyro. You could fly electrics with the Vbar, but to fly a Nitro / Gasser, you really needed a Vbar with the extra sensor because of the vibration.

On the Mikado site now, if you build the nitro, there is no option to add the Vbar with the extra gyro sensor in the cart, so I was wondering if it was safe to fly a nitro with just the Vbar (Neo / Link) today...

The sensor for the gyro is built into the Neo. Even better, they are much more immune to vibration. Neo is my favorite FBL on a gasser, flies fantastic.

Thanks, that's good to hear. I'm only asking because Mikado still sells the Vlinks with the external sensors, as seen here:

VBar NEO with built-in VLink receiver + Gyro sensor, with 6.1 Express Software
https://shop.mikadousa.com/04950-VBa...re_p_1513.html

If it's good to go without the external sensor, it's good news for my fun budget. But it begs the question why they still sell them as an updated model.

You need to purchase Pro update to enable the nitro governor.

You don't need an external sensor.
