To Gyro or Not?

Now that most of us are into our flying season, it’s time to dust off those old models that have been hanging around for the last few months.  If you’re like me, spring is a time for me to update those older models and decide which ones are going to get my attention.  Often, I will break out a model that hasn’t seen the air in years.  There is no better time than now to equip a model with a stabilization system of one sort or another.  I can hear some of you griping at me already.  “I never needed a gyro thingy, why do I need one now?”  The answer to this question is, of course, you don’t.  We don’t need a gyro in the plane to go fly it.  For many people, the idea of stabilizing electronics in model aircraft is akin to cheating.  Whether it’s building, flying, or bench-racing that you enjoy most, the point is to enjoy it.  Stabilization systems, or gyros as most pilots call them, can improve the enjoyment that we experience when we go out to fly.  All of us have been through the dreaded maiden flight.  Our hand shaking with the thought of all those hours spent completing a new model.  This fear becomes one hundred times worse when it’s a scratch-built model or something of our own design.  A well-tuned system can help alleviate these fears, knowing that even if the model is a little out of alignment or the cg is a little off, the system will help us keep it in one piece.  Most modelers I know have had a model that is more difficult than others on take-off or landing.  A stabilization system can take your worst nightmare and have you greasing it in like a pro.  And let’s face it, there is no better tool for the new pilot to gain confidence than a model that will always return to level flight.  We, as a community, have to embrace technology for its ability to improve the quality of our hobby experience.  Do yourself a favor; get out there and try one of these systems for yourself.  There are stabilization systems available at multiple price points and varying degrees of complexity.  Shoot us an email at support@esprittech.com for more information on what might be right for you.

Field Kit Necessities

With the flying season upon us, many of you are anxious to get to the field and start logging hours on your aircraft – I know we are. Amidst all the excitement, let us not forget to get all the basic field necessities ready, as it is easy leave without, but hard to go without. Here is a recap of what our guys make sure they have in their field boxes as they head out to fly.

  1. CA and Kicker – Great for those on-the-go fixes. We recommend the performance of Zap Adhesives.
  2. Double Sided Tape – This is great to add a little extra hold to your devices as they undergo the stress of flight. We recommend the 3M adhesive for a secure hold.
  3. Velcro – Perfect item for the parts that you will need access to. Velcro adds a great hold, but not as temporary as the double sided tape or CA.
  4. Tools (Wrenches, Screw Drivers, Cutters) – As we fly things need adjusting, either from initial set up, tuning, or flight vibration. Multi-Tools like the GorillaGrip Wrench or the Multi-Driver Set Duratrax offer several sizes in one convenient package.  Don’t forget your basic Xacto #1 Knife and spare blades!
  5. Battery checker and spare batteries / Fuel and spare glow plugs – Whether  you fly Gas/Glow or Electric, you need to make sure you have backup power, so you are not left grounded.
  6. Spare Props/Blades – These are a must for those accidental nicks and chips that may happen.
