Ace GT5 Flybarless 3-Axis Gyro Control System

Mar 04, 2012 No Comments by

One of the newest 3-axis flybarless control systems is the Ace GT5 Flybarless Gyro System from Thunder Tiger. As you can see in the photo, one of its greatest features is the bright LED display, with a full icon based menu touch pad that is completely adjustable without the need of a computer or an external programming box.  The GT5 is very small, being about the size of a half-dollar coin, and weighs only about ½ oz, but yet uses a high quality aluminum case for heat dissipation. Compatible with PWM, Futaba S.Bus and Spektrum satellite receivers, it uses the latest MEMS sensors for full 3D capability.
