Futaba GY401 Head Locked Gyro for 400 450 RC Helicopter **FREE SHIPPING**After several years, the Futaba GY401 Gyro remains to be the bench mark gyro that all others are judged.Ask 5 RC helicopter enthusiasts what the best Gyro is and 4 of them will likely say the GY401.It is said that copying someone or something is the highest form of flattery; guess that is why there is a cheap GY-401clone hitting the market almost every month it seems. Unfortunately while many try – none provide the performance orpiece of mind Futaba’s GY series of gyros offer.The Futaba GY401 gyro is for the heli pilot who wants both flexibility in terms of what model heli the gryo works wellwith and wants the assurance that a gyro malfunction or failure won’t bring down his/her dream machine.The GY-401 works well in almost every single rotor bird out there from 400 size electrics up to 52cc gas or MW54 poweredturbine monsters with rotor diameters approaching 2 meters. In fact, Bergen RC recommends the the GY 401 in theirindustrial Observer line of heavy lift gas and turbine RC helicopters.The large range of heli size usage and outstanding performance is why the GY-401 outsells every other performance gyro on the market right now - It works in almost anything! In fact, when I asked my local (ok, 500 km away) hobby shop how many Futaba GY-401’s they sell – the numbers were remarkable. More 401’s than all the other gyros combined – prettyimpressive!I know many people who started with a Futaba GY401 gyro in a small 400 size electric knowing one day they wanted to getinto a larger electric or nitro powered heli. The GY-401 follows the progress and that alone offers some nice value ifyou don’t want to have to purchase another gyro for your next bird.Description:Type: Micro Heading Hold GyroSensor: SSM AVCSWeight: 27gDimensions (WxLxH): 27 x 27 x 20mmGain Setting: Remote OnlyMode Setting: Rate or Heading Hold – Remote OnlyOperating Voltage: 4.8 VDC (Needs a voltage regulator (6 VDC) if using higher than 4.8v battery packs)Reversing Switch: Yes, on gyroLimit Trimmer: Yes, adjustment on gyroFunction: with reverse switch, DS mode switch, control delay adjustment knob, servo stroke volume adjustment knob. By transmitter to adjust gyro sensitivity and switching lock (AVCS) mode and normal mode.Futaba GY401 Features:AVCS (Angular Vector Control System) is Futaba’s patented heading hold gyro technology. AVCS works better than other HHgyro systems at correctly compensating for and eliminating drifting issues in heading lock/hold mode caused bytemperature changes within the gyro.The GY-401, just like all of Futaba’s AVCS gyros uses a SMM gyro sensor and is said to be better than other conventionalsolid state yaw sensing technologies since all the electronic components are combined on a single chip improvingperformance and reliability. SMM stands for Silicone Micro Machine.Both Gain and Heading Lock/Rate modes are remotely adjustable through the gyro settings menu on a computerized radio. Ifyou don’t have a programmable computerized radio that you can program in different ATV values for the gain settings, theFutaba GY401 will not work for you – there are no gain or mode selection options on the gyro case. A better choice fornon computerized radios or if you are lacking a spare channel for remote gain would be the Futaba GY240 or the E-fliteG90 (for smaller helis).The Futaba GY401 has a built in Limit Trimmer adjustment so you can set the amount of tail rotor servo travel to avoidservo over travel and stress on the servo. This is an easy way to set the travel over the more conventional method ofchanging servo arm/tail rotor pitch arm lengths.As mentioned, the GY401 supports both slower analog tail rotor servo pulse rates or can be switched to a 270 Hz highfrequency rate for fast tail rotor specific digital servos. Speaking of servos, the 401 comes in two different packages.You can purchase the Futaba GY401 Gyro only package or the Gyro/Servo combo package.How To Setup The Futaba GY401 Gyro?The GY401 gyro by Futaba is perhaps the most popular RC helicopter gyro ever.It’s simple to use, works with a wide variety of analog and digital servos and has a very attractive price point.GY401Pre-Setup SetupPlug the gyro’s main lead (black with 3 wires – black, red, green) into the rudder channel on your receiver. This is channel 4 on most receivers, but consult your radio’s manual if you’re not sure.Then plug the other lead (red servo plug – yellow wire) into the gain channel in your receiver. This is normally channel 5, but can be also be set to any aux channel. Again, if you’re not sure, check your manual.Since there is only one wire on this channel, you need to make sure you plug it in correctly. The yellow wire should line up with the other lighter colored wires in the receiver. Depending on the servos and other electronics you’re using, these could be white, orange or yellow.And finally, plug the other servo lead (black female lead) into your rudder servo,GY401Warning: If you have DS (digital servo) mode enabled and you’re using an analog servo, there’s a good change you’re going to burn out the servo motor. If you’ve got analog mode selected for a digital servo, you’ll want to get it switched around, but it’s not likely to cause any immediate problems. Check the switch on the gyro and make sure it matches the tail servo you’ll be using.You’ll also need to mount your gyro to your helicopter using the foam mounting pads that come with it in a place where it will be secure and stay relatively safe in a crash.Radio SetupStep 1 – Set ATV’s, Reset Trims, Disable MixingSet the endpoints or ATV’s on your rudder channel (usually channel 4) to 100% each way. This number doesn’t affect the actual servo throw, but piro rate which I’ll explain later on.Make sure all trims and subtrims are set to 0. There is no need to veer use trim on the rudder channel. If your tail is drifting, you’ll need to check your gyro gain or mechanical setup.Also, make sure that there is no revo or any other mixing on your rudder channel.Step 2 – Check Rudder / Gyro DirectionCheck that your rudder and gyro channels don’t need reversing.When you spool up and input right rudder, the nose of your heli should move to the right and the tail to the left and vice versa. If the nose moves to the left when you input right rudder input, reverse the rudder channel (usually channel 4) in your radio.To check that the gyro is working in the right direction, push the rudder stick to the right and note the way the tail servo moves. Then take the tail of the heli and yaw it left. If the rudder moves the same way both times, then your gyro direction is set correctly. If it moves in opposite directions, then you need to reverse the gyro using the switch on.Notice:This ishigh imitationFutaba GY401 Head Locked Gyro.Package Includes:1 x Futaba GY401 Head Locked GyroThe package will be sent within1-2businessday from purchase.The item is dispatched from our suppliers in China via Airmail without any extra charge from you!So please keep in mind that theDelivery timecan take Between15 - 45 days.* The arrival time depends on different areas in the world and customs clearance.Please contact us first if you haven’t received your parcel within declared time.Please if you can not wait the specified arrival time,Please do not buy, to avoid unpleasantness.Custom fees, TAX or VAT or any delay with the country regulationWould be the buyer responsibility.please make sure your address in eCRATER matches the address you would like us to ship to.Payment via PayPal Only.I ship to the shipping address you provide during PayPal checkout and are not responsible for wrong or undeliverable addresses.PayPal does not charge any fees for buying an item through your buyer's account.Please keep in mind that communication is the key to solving any problems that may arise during the transaction,please do not hesitate to contact us by email so that together we can complete the transaction as smoothly and as flawlessly as possible.I do accept return only if for any reason description does not match the item within 14 days of received the item.Shipping fees are not refundable.
