my gyro just died... I can read my 6V +/- on the output pins on the gyro where the rudder servo plugs into... so its receiving input voltage from the receiver... but the Gyro's functionality is dead plus the LED... so I can not see whether in HH or rate mode... the gyro doesn't compensate movements...

I plugged into the rudder channel on receiver just straight the rudder servo... works... so the channel is fine... has someone had this happen to their 780 gyro? I am having to post it to suppliers now to check up and maybe get replacement...

everything was going smooth and then this morning I wanted to fly and checked the LED was dead...

haha felt stupid, cause I freaked out and phoned the supplier... he told me that if its not receiving input from the TX from the gain(gear) channel the gyro functionality will be off... so I spotted it told him my wire was loose
