The Eagle A3 Super is our top of the line flight stabilization system designed specifically for fixed-wing aircraft. The A3 Super has an integrated high precision 6-axis (3 gyro + 3 accelerometers) MEMS sensor with advanced attitude and PID control algorithm. The gyro can accurately detect the angular velocity and attitude of the aircraft and issue commands to all servos, which enables perfect balance and stability throughout the flight. The A3 Super has built-in capabilities for delta-wing (flying-wing), v-tail, remote master gain adjustment, and separate dual aileron and elevator control.
The Eagle A3 Super offers 4 flight modes, including Normal Stabilization Mode, 3D Attitude Locking Mode, Self-balance Mode and Gyro Deactivated Mode. By using a 3-way switch on your transmitter you can switch between the 3 different modes during flight. The A3 Super also provides three kinds of control behavior including Stable Mode, Normal Mode and Sport Mode to meet the needs of individual pilots. The firmware of the A3 Super can be upgraded by simply connecting the gyro to your personal computer using the included USB adapter and data cable. See the support tab above for the latest firmware.
Why use an airplane gyro? Gyros (also called flight stabilizers) help keep your airplane stable during take-off, flight maneuvers, and landings which can be helpful during windy days or when learning how to fly RC planes. Advanced gyros, like the A3 Super, also include accelerometers which automatically turn your plane "right side up" if you lose orientation of your plane during flight. Gyros also help you master aerobatic maneuvers like knife edges and hovering as the system can "lock" in a planes position / trajectory. Once thought to be for beginners only, Gyros are now common in all classes of aircraft and are utilized by all levels of flyers. Gyros are great for learning, they let pilots practice advanced aerobatics, they give you piece of mind in less than ideal flight conditions, and they can often help you avoid costly crash damage.
Trying to decide between the Eagle A3 Pro and A3 Super? The primary difference between these two gyros is the A3 Super includes a 3 dimension accelerometer. The 3D accelerometer tracks the orientation of the plane in flight and will automatically right your aircraft at the flip of switch. This feature can help you return your aircraft to safety if you lose orientation because your airplane is too far away or in direct sunlight. The A3 Super also includes more input options and many more adjustment options as detailed in the feature list below.

PROS; nice unit, pretty simple to operate, still has some quirks I'm trying to work out, being able to dial in levels of gain on the fly pricless, Cons; cover is seperating, has 4 settings for 3 position switch so you cant use one unless you change in field and you need a programmer which cost as much as the stabilizer or a laptop, that sucks.
