This gyro took a plane that I did not enjoy flying and made it a dream to fly. The plane was an old ultrafly 300EX that was made for brushed motors and nickel metal batteries. It just did not promote confidence in good conditions, but now I am flying it in heavy winds with no sweat. This application was just a test to see how well the gyro worked. I did not care about the plane and the gyro could not make it fly worse. I was very impressed and ordered two more for other planes. It was easy to set up and simple to use. The applications are unlimited and I would like to try one in a multicopter. Use the quick start guide and the software and you will be smiling in no time.

I mounted the Bluelight BL-3GRC gyro in a ART-Tech P-51D because I needed something to stabilize a smaller plane in our Kansas wind. With the gain set at 30% it works great. Makes this 37" wingspan fly like a much bigger plane. Smooth and predictable.

I like the reading of what it can (or) should do. I have not been able to fly with this yet. But from reading the manual.(not a sheet of paper) and looking at it over many times, It seems to be a good unit. I have (7) seven Eagle Tree units that are great and this is where my compairsion will come from. One thing that stands out on the Eagle Tree is the horizon that is part of the setup.
The price is higher than the Tree $65 vs $85.I like that I can use its own batt.it is not good for it to feed off your flight power.(eat your own electrons).9.4v life batt.
Well enjoy may the best one win..because they both will say they are better just to get us to pay....them.

Fantastic!! I have one installed in a Chip Hyde Vision 3D airplane with a NEU 1521/1.5Y motor & 6.7:1 gearbox powered by a 12S 5000Mah battery, using an Airtronics SD-10G radio with 10ch. Rx. The gyro is set up to provide a stability overlay to the computer set-up of the radio system. The initial attraction of this gyro was that it accepted 2 inputs for rudder, aileron and elevator. I found the set-up process a little difficult but with excellent help from BlueLight Tech. my issues were completely resolved. I can switch the system On/Off and adjust the level of stability IN FLIGHT!! The performance is amazing, landings in the desert winds are a joy. Interestingly it doesn't mask basic trim issues with the plane, CG, thrust line, aileron differential etc. In fact it makes it easier to trim the plane as it takes away any external effects and allows the process to be done in windy conditions. It has improved my overall flying ability, knife edge horizontal figure of eights are easy. A couple of set-up points; when checking the correction given by the gyro, set the stability level to high, it is easier to see that it's working correctly. I use an external BEC to power my Rx & servos. So for set-up purposes, to avoid the risk of running the motor, I use an external 4.8V battery & switch harness plugged directly into the gyro and have left a 4" servo extension lead permanently in place. I highly recommend this product.

Good manual. Using the software this unit has flexibility in settings. It can be turned on and off at the transmitter. Because it has both in and out ports, it is easy to install without separate satellites or receivers. Just install between the RX and the servos. I'm using this on giant scale aircraft, so I only use the signal through the Gyro and power the servos with Y harnesses. This is explained in the manual very nicely. Take-offs and landings are aided by this gyro for nice and straight lines down the middle. Flights are smooth and realistic looking. No heading hold on this one, but other than that, for the price, this is a very nice unit. I have it in three aircraft and plan more.

By far the nicest commercial technology device I've encountered in years. The box packages the components precisely. The gyro module is clearly labeled for all its connections and installation orientation. The Quick Start Guide and the User Manual are nicely illustrated and written in first class "British" rather than the more common "Asian" English. The steps in the Quick Start Guide are presented clearly and will lead to a quick start. The manual is well organized and the table of contents refers to properly labeled and highlighted bookmarks in the text A redefinition of user friendly.

My experience is with airplanes. The basic gyro sets up without much difficulty but it does get complicated if you want to use its advanced features. Support is not available in USA but rather by email from Thailand. Answers take 24 hours or more when requesting assistance. Local web sites are available but may not have the answers one is looking for. The gyro provides excellent stability during flight and for the most part I am pleased with how it works

I could not believe how well my plane flew in 20mph winds. I got my first flights in on it today. Just ordered my second one. Actually I hate to say how great it is because I am sure they will raise the price.
