I'm new to this type of gyro. I purchased a JR 500T matched to a JR 8700G servo. The set-up was per the instructions. It performs as stated by keeping the nose straight. My problems are when making a turn to the left or right while in forward flight.
What is the proper technique when turning while in HH setting?

When turning you need to use your cyclic and rudder together.

For a left turn:
Push left cyclic and left rudder, heli will bank left and the rudder will bring the tail around with the nose of the heli.
Use collective to maintain altitude.

Maybe someone else can word the process better than I.

Hope this helps.

Big Edge gave you the straight skinny.

To add a bit more, when you tilt the rotor disc, the heli will move towards the low point/away from the high point.

A HH gyro will try to keep the canopy/boom pointing in the original direction, before the tilt. This is a wonderful aide, as rudder trim changes whenever the rotor rpm changes. So these are great for reducing the pilot's workload when lifting off, landing, and flying aerobatics - times when rudder trim changes are maximum.

There are also rate gyros out there, and they are quite different in effect. They will give you close to a coordinated turn in FFF. At other times, putting in those rudder trim changes are on you. You get little help lifting off, landing, or flying aero from a rate gyro.
