Futaba GY701 Gyro & Governor Combination

Aug 26, 2010 No Comments by













Futaba helicopter pilot Bobby Watts says that the 701 “outperformed any governor” he’s ever used! The governor and gyro are combined so that there are only two parts: the senor and the amp comtrol box. Bobby also notes that it give the heli improved mid-range performance and more power during hard manuevers. It also has a slightly less sensitive sensor than the 520, so it’s even easier to fly with.It costs $270.
