Subject: Gyro for discus launching?
Everyone, I know that Colin used a gyro on his Bug for stability during launch. I was wondering what gyros, if any, you all are using and their weights. Colin, I'm curious to see if a gyro is worth the weight for the Bug - - is launch performace really affected by the gyro? Might it be possible to manage without the gyro? My control rod setups are never rigid enough to get rid of slop, so do you think that a gyro would even matter is this case? Thanks, Dan
