Yep. I had the same one... failed in a week. I'd recommend the esky EK2-0704.

Anyone try this out yet? Only $38 shipped.
Nice, thanks Maxx. Glad I didn't grab one, the Esky is even cheaper. I see two on ebay, the one you mention and the
Esky Head lock gyro EK2-0704B
Edit: And how did your posting get the #1 spot when I started the thread???

Glad to hear it, thanks guys. Didn't think I would have this much fun with a rally but this thing is cool.
esky EK2-0704 Thats the gyro Ive been using. whats the benefits of having a head lock gyro(EK2-0704B) vs normal gyro(EK2-0704)?
Got my gyro in and mounted it on the rear body post. It seems to work for the most part but while driving at half throttle in a straight line the car wiggles side to side. the gyro is strapped in with wire ties, I'll try some servo tape and wire ties to see if that helps.
Also my red light is on all the time, is that what everyone else is seeing?
itzstress; there is no known benefit to the head lock, other than there are more to choose from on eBay, and they are cheaper (in some cases). I can't say if they have an effect that's any different that a non-head lock. I think for ground-based rc, the simple "normal" gyro is the way to go.

The wiggling side to side is definitely a destroyed bearing inside the knuckle. Happened to me before I did my RPM upgrade.

Mine never wiggled until I put in the gyro. I'll pull mine out and see what it does. I also had it in with just a wire tire and no servo tape so it moved just a bit.
^^^that is correct. You want to make sure gain is turned down some.

lets see some videos

2:09 you can see the wiggle i think it looks sick for most of the video it was full throttle..the tires feel so thin now. i want to do a 2s and 3s vid next.

Got the gain dialed down and this thing is sick. No more wiggle, you really have to learn how to drive with a gyro, it does a lot of the work for you.

sorry if this is a dumb question but what is a drift box and whats a gyro???
it acts as stability control....once the rear starts to slide or hit a bump at high speeds... the gyro/drift box will sense the slide and counter-steer. it takes some tuning to get it to suit your driving style. personally i drift better without it. i use mine for high speed runs.
Revival but...I can't get the 0704B to recognize my receiver. I think it only works with mostly plane remotes.
th 0704b is a heading lock gyro and wont work. you need the 0704.
