Problem Setting Gain With Aurora 9.

Guys,
I am setting up a Blade400 for one of our club members with his Aurora 9 (which I have never seen before and very cool) and have a very frustrating problem. I am using the stock EFLRG110HL gyro and stock EFLRDS75H servo. I set the gyro up as dual rate controlled by switch A. When I first set it up everything worked great. I was able to switch between HH and rate and adjust the gain. I did some test hovering and got the heli pretty much dialed in.
I turned everything off. I powered everything up again about an hour later and the changes I made were gone. The settings on the transmitter looked the same but the ability to switch between HH and standard rate was gone and the heli acted as if the gain was way too high. Adjustment of the gain in the Gyro screen had no effect. The heli was in HH mode regardless of the switch setting.
I know this sounds crazy. I have set up a number of helis though the years and know how to do it. There must be something about the Aurora 9 I am missing.
Now the really crazy part. I messed around with everything imaginable and everything started to work again. I was able to switch between HH and standard and the gyro held the tail solid. The heli responded to gain changes as it should. I turned everything off again, had lunch, went out to do some hovering again and I was back where I started. No gain control and had lost the ability to switch between HH and standard.
It's as if the gyro is not initializing correctly on power up for some reason. I'm thinking that there is a switch or setting with the Aurora 9 that prevents the gyro from initializing properly or maybe I have a problem with the gyro.
Help!!
Thanks!!

A possability

You have to watch the 'C' Common and 'S' Separate. Almost all settings are independent between flight modes - when you see a highlighted "C" (common) any changes made to those settings will affect the other flight mode settings with a "C". A highlighted "S" (seperate) means only that flight mode's settings will change.

Above is quoted from Stoats.

Solved - Bad Gyro

This turned out to be a bad gyro. I put another of the same make and model and everything worked fine.

I spent a lot of time on this assumming that there was something I was doing wrong with the transmitter.

The real problem was that the gyro would work intermittently so I thought I had the problem solved several times until I powered up again.

Thanks!!

i have the aurora also and have found that plugging power in Instead of using a switch I have to make sure It makes contact and don't break for even a split second or It may not recognize the right power setting.When reading your post that came to mind.glad you found the problem.
