I dont see how gear ch in this situation makes it easier,as said I have 3 of these on 3 different helis on Futaba tx's.with gear channel some TX's go to 140 or 150 and tx gain is different than true gain,and so on.with the futaba gyro menu, 30% in rate is 30% on the gyro,44% in HH is 44% on the gyro(once the gyro/tx are synched)its very clear and straight forward.

even on my limited programming t6ex the gyro channel set up very easy.

to the OP,did you get this sorted out?you should be able to have the up side of the gyro switch be HH and the other side be rate

thats what makes this gryo kick arse is that it tells you what the % really is. just cause you can adjust another tx to 140-150 doesnt meen you have to run it that way. you can also set most TX,s to match perfect.

DX7 is the biggest culprit for this gyro using gear channel for ease of use. theres a hundred ways to skin this cat just have to figure out what the OP,s issue is.

thats what I am saying,yes I know the DX7 works way better on gear but this guy is using a futaba 7c

yes I like that feature also,I have mine synched up so that the % you see on the tx is exactly what the gyro is showing,so you know you are right on,very nice.

having used a 6ex and now a 10C I think this is just a matter of something in the tx needs to be set properly

Unlike 401, 2100T and 5000 work better when mechanically centered. So, it is a good practice to boot in rate and lift off in rate mode to check that the tail linkages did not go out of whack before flipping upto HH.
On a 401, it's also almost mandatory to do a mechanical setup to get the best performance as well. There are some folks who blow it off, but I have tried it both ways, and trust me, a 401 runs a *LOT* better with a correct linkage setup.

And myself, I would not in any way consider having to power up a 401 in HH a "limitation" . . . maybe a "quirk" or "minor inconvienience" at best. On my radios, it's all switches to the back for powerup, and then set as desired. Doesn't matter what gyro/gov/heli - that's the drill, and that will bring the 401 up in HH. A simple flick of the rudder d/r switch, and it's in rate . . . Hardly a "limitation" in any way . . .
