I have recently bought XTR and it rocks!. I have test flown G3 and was unimpressed.
One question though. Why would you ever switch from HH to non HH. I notice very little difference in response while switching between the two. When posting this question I get the same old generic response. Non HH is used for specific flight manuvers????? Can anyone elaborate on this?

My understanding is that in non-HH mode, the tail weathervanes better, so forward flight and turns are easier.
So far, though, I have only used HH mode in forward flight.

HH Mode
it will hold your heli direction when it encounters crossed wind, in non HH mode the heli tail drift a little either left/right when crossed wind occurs (called whether vane effect).
I know someone here will explain more details than I do... but this is how HH mode affect my heli using GY240.

Actually it the exact opposite. The heli does'nt weather vein, it follows the nose, which is a joy for flying in reverse. It holds the last move.

Non HH gyro's are weather vein happy. If you are a novice, the standard rate gyro is a bit easier to forward fly because it doesnt command percise movement.

The best use for non-HH (yaw rate) mode is for doing aerobatics. The gyro doesn't fight aggressive moves as much as when it's in rate mode.

OK
Tried flying in non HH mode on XTR. Tail seems to follow nose. Probaly good for flying circle laps. It also appears that older more experienced acrobatic flyers are using non HH mode because it is what they are used to (touchy feely thing). I have also read that some "pros" never use non HH mode.
Well I like to know where my ass end is in case I need to kiss it goodbye!
Hey Vince are you going to the XFC event in Troy Ohio?

HH is also very good for those of us who have not mastered nose-in. The GY-401 holds my Rex tail rock stable. Just point it and fly ... even in wind. No left thumb left and right at all. Love it!
