The Quanum Gyro is a flight stabilization system for rc planes. It has independent gyro gain control for aileron, elevator and rudder. This gyro stabilizer will smooth out these 3 controls and make your model easier and much smoother to fly, especially in rough air conditions.
There are three modes that the plane can fly in, manual (gyro and accelerometer are off), stabilized (gyro is on, accelerometer is off), self-stabilized (gyro and accelerometer are on). These can be selected from your controller. There is even a rescue or save mode. This will (in most circumstances) bring your plane back to level flight (if you are not too close to the ground) if you lose control. This is activated by a switch on your controller.
This unit would be perfect in a Trainer type model for beginners to RC flying or for making any model more stable and easier to fly.

This is a board wrapped in some "plasticized" paper. The pins get somewhat bent out of shape by the time all your connections are inserted. That said, it is under $17. Point the nose down and the elevator surfaces go up, point the nose up and they go down, roll the fuselage to the left and left aileron goes down while the right comes up, et cetera.
Seems to do what it is supposed to do, but it looks and feels like something for which you paid $17. If it doesn't do it's job, I dang sure doubt it will survive anything worse than falling off your work bench.
If you make your own foam-board let's-see-if-this-will-fly planes, this is a good thing to stick into it ... HEY, IT COSTS UNDER $17. I would not trust it with anything for which I paid over $100 or spent a long time building.
