something like this

I may need 1 gyro for rudder & 1 for elevator
Any ideas or suggestions ??

Make sure you use it in rate mode in a fixed wing plane, as heading hold can cause interesting results!
In hold mode turn it on in the pits walk out to the strip and the rudder will want to do a 90 degree turn across the strip back to its initialised position and the elevator to maintain a climb equivalent to its initial ground angle! :lol:
