ok you sub guys, a surface modeler is wondering how to use gyros for stabilizing pitch. I just finished a 1:72 Sea Shadow (the Navy's SWATH stealth ship), which is basically an a-frame affair sitting atop two torpedos. While very stable in roll, it has no stability in pitch... the real one uses computer controlled horizontal stabilizers to maintain pitch attitude, and my lack of stability shows why... low speed, it goes ok, but goose it and it dunks the stern; let off the gas, and the bow noses under in a rude reaction.
I doubt that static fins will fix this; looks like an opportunity to use a gyro. I've heard that subs sometimes uses these to maintain level operation... should work for me too. Do you use regular old R/C helo gyros? Any particular type? Any tips?
