delay you have to zero, then you go into rate mode and see if the tail stays, then flip it into HH and adjust the gain until it doesnt wag... i cant tell u how because i have no idea what radio that is

well i dont know about that radio but on the dx7 you set your endpoints to 100% on each side and set your travel adjust on the gyro so it doesn't bind the tail... then you have to adjust your gain until it holds but doesn't wag

delay you have to zero
I think you only set delay to zero if you are using a digital servo. I believe that the HS55 is analog. Though I couldn't tell you what you need to set it to...

450 se v2

Actually I just found this thread over at trex tuning:

http://www.trextuning.com/forums/showthread.php?t=4160

In it, someone recommends the following 401 settings for a HS55:

Delay to 0
DS (digital servo) to OFF

450 se v2

no you always have the delay at zero because otherwise it will delay telling the servo what to do and it will never hold... if its a analong servo theres a switch on the top that will say high-low or something of that nature and you can switch it to analog instead of digital
