I decided to upgrade my 401 to a 611 for no good reason (it was on sale). Now I'm looking at the manual and can't figure out how to set it up! This thing has more settings than I can figure out and the manual isn't much help. I can't even figure whether I'm supposed to adjust the gain on the unit or at the radio.

Can someone help with the basic settings for this? Is there an instructional video somewehre? Sorry for such a broad question but I suspect that this has already been discussed though I couldn't find it.

It's even easier than your 401. You can adjust the gain at the TX and read it on the display. Just like on the 401, you adjust the servo endpoints using the settings in the GY611.

Keep the gain around 35 percent, adjust your servo arm length so your end points are at or above 100.

Hey Guys, do you set it up with the slider centered or like the 401 with slider offset for neutral position in rate mode and have unequal end points??

You adjust for no yaw in rate mode - yes. Endpoints ONLY set pirouette speeds. You set the travel limits on the gyro for no binding.

Your correct, I should have said unequal travel limits. The reason I ask is one of the favored methods recommends have the travel limits equal and above 110%. If set up this way, how do you set the rate mode and not have unequal travel limits in the 611.

Where did you see that method suggested?

I get what you mean now...yes it can be done with the right mechanical setup first...

Nigel Brown and Jason K's web site's. I still do not understand how you set up the tail to get equal travel limits, unless I leave some travel unused. This assumes that the slider is offset toward the tail case to counteract the hovering torque. If you set it up to be centered on the shaft you would be okay in HH mode, but piro in rate mode, correct? This also assumes we are talking about a Raptor heli.

Yes, you are correct, some travel will not be used but i would set it for no yaw in rate mode first or the servo will be working harder in HH mode...

Personally I run unequal travel limits and have had no issues...I do set mechanically for no yaw in rate mode and for EPA's of 100+

Mine are set the same way.

A word though on unequal travel limits, even with a 401 and that limitation you will still usually get even piro rates because one way is going to need more throw to fight torque, one way is letting it to its thing.

You don't need equal travel limits. No tail geometry that I'm aware of really takes that into consideration when the designer figured out how far the slider really needed to travel.

I followed the instructions on the Nigel Brown site but still am not sure what to do with a couple of the settings:

3D mode or F3C mode?
AVCS Sense
Gain Tracking

Just for full disclosure - I'm just flying around and learning inverted orientations. I'm pretty sure if I just leave these at the default settings I'll be fine but I am curious about how they work
