Quick question regarding the centering of the servo. I am using GY611, w/ 14MZ.

In order to find the perfect center of the gyro servo, I've set it to Normal Mode on both the Gyro, and the Radio.

On the radio, I've also put the gain to 0%. From what I understand, this is where it needs to be to find that perfect center.

The question is, do I need to do set the gain to 0% on the Gyro as well?

Or does any of this matter on the 14MZ, since it offers servo neutral test? Just want to make sure that I have the correct settings, since I spending a lot of time calibrating this thing, and would hate to find out that my settings were wrong for calibration.

Thanks

Andrew

How to do this

Dont worry about the gain being 0%, in normal mode the servo goes to center all the time as soon as you let go of the stick.

Set the bellcrank to be vertical or centered. Adjust the pushrod length from the bellcrank to the tail rotor so that in a hover in normal mode at whatever speed you choose to hover at the tail holds without drifting. Different speeds make for different trims, so you need to pick a speed you want to use and go with that. I usually do this at my slowest speed normal mode.

Then go back on the bench and adjust the left/right limits on the gyro so that you get full throw without binding and you're done.

On the gain part, it should show 37 on the gyro screen. It doesn't matter what the TX number is, the gyro screen number is the number you want to go by.

P.S. You NEED to hover the machine and make the final adjustment. The measuring business is all meant to get you in the ballpark but you can skip all that as the bottom line hover test and adjustment is where you really need to be and nothing else really matters after that. Just get your servo centered, your bellcrank centered on the bench and then adjust the rod length in a hover to get the heli to fly with no drift.
