I replaced the main gear and shaft,installed new 3 and 1,new 6 channel
eflite rx and eflite 90 HHgyro. both 3in1 pots are off yet the tail spins up before main blades to the point I have to hold left rudder
to lift off, when I land the same thing.I have gyro about 50% any tips out there? I thought Heading hold would be for real like the 401???

if you can't beat em, sneak up from behind..

Normal, I always have to give left rudder when taking off too, its the transition to weightlessness that makes the tail slow to respond to. You'll get used to it.

hey Tomfoolery

I guess I expected to much like a fully locked tail, you know like the 401. Is yours really locked or are you always making corrections
like a standard gyro? I've tried everything still not up to my expectations...

It could be the gyro drifting. If it is you will need to add some trim to counter it.

It's still a motor-driven fixed-pitch tail. It'll never be as solid as a belt or shaft-driven variable-pitch tail. Adding other improvements (HH gyro, dual tail motors, or DD tail motor) help a lot, but still won't completely eliminate the need to fly the tail.
