Gyro with dual servo trucks - 02.17.2015, 01:32 PM

I have a question. I am trying to install a gyro in my LST2 with dual servo steering. My question is this: do I need two gyros, one for each servo or should the one gyro handle both?

Ok...thanks. another question. Does it matter where the gryo unit is placed. I ask this because when testing to see if the wheels stay in place, they don't really move as I.have.seenin a number of setup videos.

That should be in the manual of the Gyro.
I think it matters how you place it!

It doesn't matter where it is placed, but it does matter what orientation it is placed in.

to get best results place the gyro as close to the center as possible on the chassis this will give you the best resolution from the gyro and servo because thats were the cars center point pivots round just like a helicopter pivots round its main shaft


and who made you god

Figured out the issue. Tested another unit in my GTP and plugged in the gain wire and boom...working like a dream in both my GTP and my LST2.
