Is it true that the Trex 5oo's tail can have the bellcrank at 90 degrees and fly without any yaw effects? I'm about to test fly and with everything at 90 degrees and the slider centered the t/r pitch is neutral. I'm talking about RATE mode not HH.

It really all depends on your gyro. I always set mine up in rate mode for a nice hover. I know others that just set everything at 90 like you do and it works fine. My therory is that for some reason the gyro falls it will make it easier to fly. Also my thinking is that if you set up in rate mode it is easier on the gyro when in heading hold. Chuck

Set mine up that way, works great in HH (gp780)

Haven't spooled up in rate mode to see what the tail does.. I never fly in rate mode.

I like setting mine up in rate mode too. I'm an old timer and like HH for hovering and rate mode for forward flight. I read that Align helis are designed to counteract torque with the bellcrank at 90 degrees. I'd like to get it close before lift off. HH isn't real critical but rate mode is. You've got to trim it correctly or it will spin like a top.
