Yeah Racing GC301 drift car gyro

Yeah Racing GC301 drift car gyro

Yeah Racing introduce their GC301 gyro for the use with drift cars. The compact device measures 21x21x11mm, it weighs 3.6g and connects between the receiver and the steering servo. The adjustable heading hold function keeps the car stable during cornering but it maintains full manoeuvrability and car control. The amount of gain can be adjusted using the third channel on the transmitter or by using the gyro’s potentiometer. The device is usable for other on-road and off-road applications also but when used in a race event you need to check for legality.
