Hi guys my question is this, for rate and heading mode what should the RATE setting be? I have a xp 6102 and G500T gyro. right now my travel ADJ screen looks like this for GEAR CH
GEAR
+70
-48

It was set like this,
GEAR
+48
-100

The top number is the gain in heading mode and the bottom is the gain in rate mode. (controlled by toggle switch) I have seen posts where they say fore JR under 50 is rate and above it HH. Is this true for my set up as well, or can the bottom # be 100?
I have done searches and consulted the only other pilot I know.
Any and all help is welcome.
Thanks Cope44

Where the settings for the JR are used and it is 50% as zero gain then below being rate mode and above being HH mode that is for the Gyro menu ONLY, those setings don't apply when using the gear channel.

If setting up with the gear channel where the gain is from 0 to -100 is one side of the gyro and from 0 to +100 is the other (it doesn't matter which is HH or rate ase the channel can be reversed to make each side what you prefer.
Make sure when the gyro is in HH mode that there is ZERO drift on the bench while the heli is just sat there in HH mode, this is done by using a little subtrim. The reason for the subtrim is because JR gyro's have a pre-set neutral point so the radio must be set to that neutral. This doesn't apply to the new JR770 as it samples the neutral during power up the same way as the Futaba gyro's do.

When adjusting the gain there is NO set amount to use as every setup is different, just turn the gain up untill the tail wags during fast forward flight then back it off to stop the wagging. Then reduce it a little more. Once you have found the amount of gain you require then just set the same amount on the rate mode and you're done.

Of course you should have the model set up so it will hover with a stationary tail in Rate mode before you finalize any settings.
