Description

The iGyro is a completely new 3-axis gyro system for surface models. During development and implementation, attention was paid to maximum versatility and yet simple, menu-guided and user-friendly operation.

We would like to point out that a control algorithm specially developed for surface models hardly changes the control behavior of your model. This is especially important to avoid the impression that the gyro is controlling your model. However, the flight becomes much quieter, more precise and less sensitive to negative weather-related and aerodynamic influences. Landing approaches in windy weather are much safer.

The iGyro works with all remote control systems that have a serial, digital output. DSM2 and DSM X, Futaba S-Bus, Multiplex M-Link, Graupner HoTT and Jeti offer this feature. The combination with PowerBox Cockpit SRS and PowerBox Competition SRS is particularly easy because the iGyro is installed with only 2 patch cables between receiver and battery backer.

For the first time worldwide, a 3-axis gyro is supported by a GPS sensor. The GPS sensor determines the respective flight speed in every flight position. The iGyro uses this information to optimally adjust the gyro effect in all speed ranges. This effectively prevents the model from oversteering or oscillating at high speed, while at the same time achieving optimum control of gusts of wind during a slow landing approach.
