yeaah.. me again *sigh*

is there ayone out there that can offer a little step by step advice on setting up this gyro on the 3810?

Before you say "read the manual"... consider that i have..and i cant for the life of me get this frikken thing to even enter autosetup by toggling the gain switch ( i think this is where i am going wrong)...

Gain is connected to aux2, programmed aux2 - gear on prg mix 1, but toggling the gear switch dosent le tthe gyro enter the setup routine.
Or... if you really ant to mess with me head, you could gimme a hint on how to set up norm and hh from the idleup 0 , 1..

God, im lost just typing about it.. (ever get to that point where you do something so many times so many ways you just go mental?)

I figured someone out there might know how to do it... or have a solution to fixing all the grey hairs ive sprouted in the two days of trying to get this sorted.

cheers guys....

I don't know to much about the 3810, I have the CSM 400 and the 8103. The first thing to do is make sure your gear switch is enabled and not disable. I had a problem with mine one time and come to find out, my gear/inverted switch was disabled. I even called Horizon and they told me it was a bad switch (shows ya what they know).
hint on how to set up norm and hh from the idleup 0 , 1..
Go into you gyro sensitivity, on the right side of the screen you should see F.MODE. In normal it should be (0), in stunt it should be (1) and in hold it should be (1). That way when your in normal mode you will be flying in normal mode and when you switch to stunt 1 you will be flying in heading hold and when you switch your throttle hold you will be in heading hold. That's the way I have mine setup (but I have the 8103). I would think that most JR radio's are the same way (maybe not?). Hope this helps.

JR3810 and JR8103 should be the same thing.
In Hongkong my JR is known JR3810.

OK,
you say you have your gain on AUX2 and mixed to the gear switch?
why not just have it plugged straight into the ch5 gear then no mixing,
having said that im sure you have your reasons,

so, if you have you gyro plugged into AUX2 as a primary source the you need to assign a switch to AUX2 that you can toggle to enter auto setup,

My guess is that you have switches to this function inhibited,
in system set up of the 3810 (hold up and down then switch on) there is a screen where you can assign the switch / aux2 relationship.
Use the throttle hold switch as a temp switch that you can toggle, then, when your done with the gyro setup inhibit the switch again so it just works for throttle hold.

I had the same problem when i used AUX2 for my TJ, this has a calibration mode that is entered in a similar way (switch toggling)
Ch5 was used for my csm gyro (why arn't you) and i only had an 8 ch Rx so i couldnt use AUX3 for the TJ
AUX2 was my only option but as its the master channel in the mixing setup i needed to assign a temporary switch to it.

I hope this helps

Tony

Thanks to all for the help.

After having 2 local flyers check it over, it would appear that the gyros stuffed. I went out and brought a 401 and 9253 today, probably the best thing i ever did. Been flying with the crappiest hitec 422 on the tail (yeah i know.. bad bad) and that csm that wont go into HH for about 6 months...

Going to give the 401 a first flight and some adjustments today.

Once again guys, appreciate the help, heli flyers around here are few and far between, and its good to have an online resource such as this.
