E-sky gyro fault ?

Recommended Posts

I have twice had an odd fault while flying FPV with my new Biplane Twinstar with gyro on the ailerons. While flying along level the plane just goes left wing down for whatever reason. The first time full aileron was not enough to stop the left turn and rudder had to be used as well, after a few seconds everything returned to normal. I suspect the gyro so would be interested if anyone has had this problem?

It can be seen here at about 9:05

Very nice countryside video. Probably best to remove the gyro and fly without it to see if the problem occurs. By the way, does the gyro make a dramatic difference on the two-winged beast?

Yes my plane is to fly without it next, I'm not sure if its the gyro or the left engine/gearbox at fault.

I fly the plane with both the single and twin wings so the gyro was fitted anyway, it was added to help smooth the aircraft on windy days. It dose have less effect with the biplane wing as only the lower wing has ailerons.

If that is the case, then you are certainly having more fun than me! :) By the way, the hobby shop called today to tell me that my Twinstar II kit arrived.
