Learning to fly a helicopter is no easy task. By putting the precision of tail lock within the reach of beginners, JR has just made this process much easier. Beginners start out by hovering.The benefit of Tail Lock is that revolution-mixing adjustment programming is not required, making setup much easier for beginners. Since most beginners lack the programming experience to fully utilize a tail lock gyro with remote gain and tail lock activation, the G410T uses a pot and switch on the gyro unit itself that lets the modeler manually adjust gain and switch between tail lock and standard modes. This precision can be used to great effect in the hands of a skilled intermediate or advanced heli pilots as well. Laser-true tail slides and backward loops and rolls are just as attainable with the G410T as they would be with the more expensive tail lock gyros, such as the JR G460T.
Despite its extremely affordable price, the G410T is not a stripped down gyro. For starters, it's extremely compact because both the gyro sensor and amp are encased in one unit. The high-speed angular velocity sensor will pick up low-velocity rotation just as easily as it recognizes higher velocity drift. A sophisticated, free-floating vibration isolator and reflective silvercase protect the sensor against damaging vibrations and temperature fluctuations.
If you're getting ready to start your heli flight training or simply want the benefit of tail lock authority without the price, you owe it to yourself to give JR's new G410T a closer look.
