Starting my test flights with a 240 gyro. When I run it up to 2/3 power I can't stop it from spinning. When I apply right rudder it will spin very fast to the right and does the same with left rudder. It doesn't want to stay put. The rotation of the tail rotor blades seems to be correct and the main blades aren't on backwards. I have tried two different gain settings - one at 75% and the other at 90% and it doesn't make a difference. Have also tried it in both the AVCS and regular mode. Your suggestions and reccomendations are very much appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Did you try the rev switch on the gyro sounds like you have the gyro backwards.

I agree with mapmanufacturer, it sounds like a reversed gyro, reverse it and let us know how it works

hi
if the gyro doesnt have a reverse switch you can just flip it over top for bottom and that will reverse it's direction too , and if you are standing behind the heli and push the rudder stick to the right the tail should swing left

think its fixed
I did reverse the gyro switch. thought I alreasdy tried that once - the switch on the 240 is really tiny. Now I have to set up my auto pilot. The only thing better than having these chat rooms is of course the hobby itself. Thanks for your help.
