View Full Version : Gyro choice???

In my search of all things Robonova across the vast Internet I noticed that most owners of the Robonova, and other humanoids, have used the GWS PG03 piezo gyro system. It is sort of like the de facto standard.

And I am wondering if this is because of price.

So whilst waiting for my Robonova to arrive I ordered a pair of the GWS PG03s but I also ordered a pair of the Futaba G190 micro piezo gyros. Since I fly electric helicopters I have pretty much always used Futaba servos and gyros so I decided to give their small rate gyros a try. I know one of the Futaba gyros cost about the same as two of the GWS gyros so I am thinking price is the difference.

Has anyone else used the Futaba G190 micro piezo rate gyros and if so, how did they perform?

Boy, I seem to remember hearing someone try Futaba gyros in the past. Off the top of my head I can't recall the details... let me do some digging and I'll get back to this thread.
