Smile Futaba GY430 Gyro

Hi, guys. I just saw this GY 430 Gyro today and wondering about it. Futaba website doesn't showing this product, but after researched, looks like new Gyro from Futaba. It can be use differently like, tail yaw gyro or single axle on elevator or ailon stablizer.

Is any one know about this little gyro? Price is very tempting.( $80)
P.S: I found this gyro at helidirect website.

I have just put one of these little guys on a T-Rex 500 using DX7S transmitter. Brilliant!
Just one note of interest for those using Spektrum or JR.....in order to get the gyro into AVCS mode "red light on" I had to dial the TX into negative values, I started out with negative 50%

Having a little issue getting the servo to center when switching between normal and avcs mode "remotely" Perhaps Bob can do a setup vid on this gyro?

I am looking for a good gyro for my Mini Titan and the GY430 caught my eye. I have a cheap 401 copy on it now that is just crap. I have a gy520 on my swift nx and love it, but don't need all the extra features it has. How is the 430 working for you?

I installed one of these on my 500, but I can't figure out how to get it to center the tail servo properly. It thinks that center is full clockwise. Anyone else run into this?
