Align 3GX heading hold and Gov setup question

I have Trex 500 setup with Spektrum Sat receivers. JR 12X radio. having issues with the heading hold. i manually set up channel in my radio but the light was not switching on the 3GX. so i removed the switch setup in the transmitter. now when i hit Aux 2 the light changes. But my question is how do i adjust the %. With me not selecting a channel for the gyro in the transmitter it does not give me the option for setting for gyro Sens. its greyed out( not selectable). I understand i do not need to select what channel is for gyro because of the remote Sats. I am just trying to figure where i would change my gyro % now without that option available. I have not had a chance to fly i am going to try tonight. The tail does switch to HH when i hit the switch.

same thing on my Governor setup on my 600 & 700. hit the switch and the light changes. but i have no place in the transmitter to make adjustments?

I decided to change all my Helis to 3GX from 3G and SK720.

Go to the device selection menu on the 12x and set gear to governor and aux2 to gyro. Then just use governor and gyro menus. Right now it sounds like you ate assigned to switches and not functions.

i switched it but the light on the 3GX does not change when i hit the Aux 2 switch changes. It changes green when i am in gyro sens when i turn the NORM to 53% and above. the switch still does nothing? i had it setup like this before but could not get the light to change on the 3GX.
i did test fly with the gyro not assigned to a channel and the tail did not hold in either mode it had a in hold it nasty tail wag.

Thanks for the help so far guys!

i cant get Aux 2 switch to work with hold at all. i got flight mode switch doing it. i have Aux 2 selected in device selection screen? is Aux 2 switch suppose to do anything? same with Gear for Governor? Flight mode switch works for gov and Gyro. Not the gear and Aux 2 switches. is this right?

If the gyro menu is active, Aux2 is not. So if you have Aux2 set to "gyr" on the device screen you need to use gyro menu.
Above 50% should be HH

i have Aux 2 set up to GYR in device select screen. So i have access the gyro sens screen. If I have Normal flight set to under 52% the red light is on. above 52% the light turns Green. i have flight mode 1 and 2 above 52%. when i hit the flight mode switch the light on the 3gx goes green and the tail holds the direction i push. Also when i push the throttle hold switch the green light on the 3gx goes green because the value is above 52%.
Is this the way its suppose to be?

The Aux 2 the switch does nothing when switched same with the Gear switch for Governor on my nitro? is this right. Flight mode on my nitro makes the Gyro and Gov light go when in position 1 & 2.

do i want aux 2 and gear switches for hold and gov? or is flight mode switch what i want for these? I cant seem to be getting them to work for some probably simple reason.

in device select screen i have the following (for my trex 600N)

flight mode: fmod sw
extra: inh
thro hold: hold SW
stunt trim: com
hov.analog: INH

IN OUT
gear:gear SW GOV
Aux2:Aux2 SW GYR
all other switches are ACT


44.Gyro Sens screen

(AUTO) on left
NORM Normal on top
CH: AUX2

51% <norm>
72% <ST-1>
74% <ST-2>
50% <ST-3&4> GREYED OUT
65% <HOLD>

You do not want switches active. You want your flight modes to control gyro and governor.

The issue you are likely having is your normal gyro percentage is pretty much at center, and that will cause problems.

what percentages would you do for the gyro gain and for the governor?

I Thank everyone that has helped me figure out my issues.

75% for gyro is a good start (I think that gives you a green HH light. If not, then 25%)

Governor depends on motor. The governor percentages are the same as the Align G600 governor. I think I am up at like 95% to get 18000 on my OS55's

Hi guys,
In Device SEL. I have GEAR set to GOV and FMOD rpms are goved properly but this means gov will be on all the time. Is there a way to mix a switch (say) so that you can turn GOV on/off?

Cheers

I believe the the gov function is on channel 5 w/JR.

If you run the 3Gx software, the gov function has a screen that you can put on your gear ratio. Now input a percentage in your radio. If you have done it correctly, the headspeed will be displayed in realy time on the computer. The %'s have to be input in the radio. The only variable that you can control in the software is the gear ratio.

Hope that helps
