What is a Gyro In a RC Helicopter?

What is a Gyro In a RC Helicopter?

A gyro or gyroscope is an electronic stabilizer that helps keep a RC helicopter flying stable and level. If you see a ".5" after the channel number, then you know that this RC helicopter has an internal gyro. For example, a "3 Channel" RC helicopter doesn’t have a gyro, while a “3.5 Channel” RC helicopter does have a gyro.

A gyro equipped RC helicopter is much easier to fly and is highly recommended for RC helicopter newbies. However, some old school and traditional RC helicopter pilots prefer flying RC helicopters without internal gyros.
