Futaba GY520 Gyro w/Heading Hold

New Page 2

Introducing the GY520. The smallest, lightest and most advanced gyro in the world.

Click here to learn what test pilots are saying about the GY520!

GY520 Gyro w/Heading Hold

GY Series technology revolutionized gyro performance in 2000 -- and the GY520 is doing it again today. Its cutting-edge MEMS (Micro ElectroMechanical System) sensor design, ultra high-speed proceFirst Outing, First Winssing speed and advanced PID control algorithm put it a quantum leap ahead of all other heading hold gyros in size, weight and performance. It's the gyro of tomorrow -- and it's available today from Futaba.

  • Offers premium performance at a surprisingly affordable price.
  • Weighs just 6.9 g -- a full 9 g less than any other heli heading hold gyro!
  • Exceptionally compact, for fast, easy installation in helis ranging from electric micros to .91 glow 3D Monsters!
  • Cutting-edge MEMS (Micro ElectroMechanical System) sensors detect smaller angle deviations than any other technology.
  • Improved, ultra high-speed processing rates and an 800 /second rate range offer faster, smoother response and consistent pirouette rates.
  • Delivers superior performance with analog servos -- and excels with digitals!

6 Parameters To Program!

  • F3C/3D Modes
  • Normal/Reverse Rotation
  • Limit Setting
  • Analog/Digital Servo
  • Response Selection
  • Data Reset

2 Ways To Program!

  1. Directly, using the GY520's push-button and 2-color LED.
  2. Remotely, using a PC and the optional CIU-2 USB interface. Both required.
