The Gyro is holding pretty well except when I fly inverted backward, specially using the left rudder, the heli would spin 360 deg. at a certain point when I come around. I use V-blades - main, rudder and paddles.
The servo was damaged and repaired from a crash. Should I send the gy601 and servo for repair?
Thanks.

I had a similar problem and all I did was put some 3-D fins on and that fixed the problem. I don't know if you have 3-D fins but if you don't might want to look at it. Just my two cents.

The Fury 3D fins are on it.

Govener or curves...
Are you running a governer or are you using throttle curves??? If you are using curves, it could be that you are dropping RPM when in the negative pitch range and this could be what is allowing the tail to blow out when you are upside down..

I am using the Futaba GV1 governor with a JR 4735 throttle servo.
I try to fly slow inverted backward flight with minimal rudder assist, but as it comes around the turn it still whips 360 degrees. Tried it on rightside up backward flight and the tail holds still right or left.

I found the culprit that causes my tail to spin. I flew the heli using the V-curve with the GV1 turned off and I was able to fly inverted backward flight without the tail spinning out of control. The heli flew so well that I think there is no need for that governor.
