I have converted a hawk pro to electric and flybarless. Wondering what gyro that i have to use and where can i get one. Don't think it's a three axis system i believe it is 4 axis.

Thanks,

Dan

Re: century electric conversion

I did convert one of my Raven to electric and flybarless
I used the CGY750 from futaba as flybarless controller - gyro

Any flybarless controller will do the job.
Your best bet would be to talk to the guys in your area and see what they are using.

Since your in B.C. get in touch with the Canadian Century distributor (Leisure tech is located in Vancouver).
Phil as always been a very helpful resources.

Of course a GY-401 or any other single axis (tail rotor) gyro will not work on your FBL system. For an FBL system you need a 3 axis FBL control box, like a BeastX, Bavarian Demon, Skookum or similar that will work with a standard mechanical/non eCCPM control system (most do).

I am curious as to what motor/esc/battery pack you are using for power?
