This is the Futaba GY701 Gyro/Governor Combo, with an included Futaba BLS251 Heli Rudder Servo. The Futaba GY701 combines a gyro and governor in one unit a quantum leap forward in technology with ultra high-speed processing rates that make it the most sophisticated system on the market. Basic and Expert menus make it easy for novices and pros alike to enjoy latency-free performance and virtually instantaneous set-ups. The GY701s OLED (Organic Light Emitting Display) is easy to read indoors or out. Add the Governor and the system is optimized for even the most extreme helicopter competitions!

Designed specifically for helicopter rudder operation the BLS251 Brushless Digital Heli Rudder Servo is equipped with a Brushless motor. This results in 30% faster response times and smoother operation than servo's with a typical Brushed motor. It also lasts longer and operates at a lower temperature than a Brushed motor servo and uses the same power consumption and centering as a Digital servo equipped with a Brushed motor!
