Electronic gyro more consistant when running at low speed. Mechanical gyro needs to charge frequently to maintain the gyro speed.
When running offroad, you can barely throttle at full speed unless the ground is smooth and flat. If you use mech gyro, the gyro will reduce speed and makes it difficult to control when running offroad.
For onroad, gyro is not necessary. The mometum of the bike will keep it stable. Adding gyro will make the bike difficult to turn at high speed.

Warning! RC bike needs traction and space to play.
