I'm with Cosmith here, and the Lemon gyro rcvr. Also back off on the control throws to about half of what they recommend. As you get used to it, you can crank up the throws to suit yourself.
Use the throttle like your other controls, as that what it is. Set it to a speed your comfortable. When you get used to it, you'll find you'll be up and down with it like your other controls. I see too many novice fliers that set the throttle to one position and never touch it for the whole flight. Treat it like another control.
Hope this helps

Thanks cosmith,

I was referring to the apprentice S Safe receiver though, in the durafly mustang. And yes it's due to feeling dependent on having the option to self level should I become disoriented. The new tech saves money and builds confidence and I can always shut it off mid flight to practice my flying skills. I've read about some newbies in the states doing this on many various airframes

Yes I'm going to be careful with the throws as well, my dual rates will both be set low first flights

I bought an orange receiver with 3 axis stabilization you guys think this will be as good as the Lemon being suggested ? Any experience setting the sensitivity of the gyro?

Thanks again you guys have been giving me the right things to consider, before my maiden flight
