I have a Logictech 2100T gyro with Airtronics 94761z servo on my T-Rex 450S. I was messing around today with my setup and experimenting with gain. At one point I experienced something quite scary. It was windy and I did a backwards stall turn crosswind. After the 360 piro, the tail started "hunting" violently. The tail was out of my control for probably 3 seconds, swinging back and forth quickly. It eventually settled out, but that was the longest 3 seconds I've ever experienced!

This was more than your typical tail wag. I actually thought something was broken and I figured it would end in a crash. The gain was set at around 75%. Guess that's the upper limit for my setup! Anyone seen this before?

Look up chrisT88 and give him a PM. He's up on that particular gyro.
In fact he did a post with a rex and that gyro, might help.

Ignorance is the absence of facts.Stupid is lacking the intellectual capacity to comprehend the fact
