the tail rotor goes the opposite direction of the stick direction making the NOSE turn left if you push the stick left and same for the right side. you should be watching the nose when flying not the tail, hope this anwers your question.

Think as if you were inside the heli...left rudder stick makes helis nose go left and its tail go right.

From an R/C point of view...when you are standing behind heli known as "TAIL IN", which is tail pointing towards you...left stick makes nose go left and tail goes right.(same as above)

When looking from the nose end also known as "NOSE IN"...left stick makes nose go right and tail go left from your point of view. (it is still turning left same as last two explanations above but as you are in front of it, the explanation reverses) If we are facing each other and I stick my left arm out...it is still my left arm but it is to your right from your perspective. Get it?

ALSO when applying left rudder stick...the LEADING edge of the tail blades should go to the oppossite direction of stick input when viewed from behind as in TAIL IN.

Hope this helps.

If you think that's confusing, just wait until you get into backward, inverted-backward,and inverted-forward flight!

You'll get there, just keep practicing. It will become second nature, to you. Sim time really helps.

EDITED
The Tx servo reversing switch does just that...reverses the servo.
The Gyro reversing switch reverses the way the gyro will respond to the main blades or counter torque.

Tx for servo...thus leading edge of tail blade is going in opposite direction of rudder stick when viewed TAIL-IN.

The way I learned was that when you're upright, you steer the "far" end. When you're inverted, you steer the "near" end. That more or less covers it whether or not you're nose in, tail in, right side up, or upside down...
