My T500, which I have been flying very well for several years now, is giving me all kinds of problems. I can not get it to not spin to the left, even when at liftoff, it is slightly spinning to the right. I have been struggling with this problem for several weeks now and I am wondering what can go wrong with 401 gyro that appears to be working right but can not hold a heading in Rate or HH mode. At times I find a setting where it seems ok but in a few seconds it is doing the spin to the left which forces me each time to bring it to the ground.
I believe I understand the act of setup in which with the powered heli has all servos as close as possible to the 90 degree position. All settings at midpoint on the TX and the tail blades at their midpoint. But no matter how I move the servo or how I change the settings it quickly spins to the left and I must bring it down.
I have written several other places at RR but can not seem to get any kind of answer to the question of what could the problem with a gyro be, that is acting this way?
The heli is lifting off in very good form, and seems to be running well and yet I keep getting this same result!
I have checked tail blade rotation many times, and just put on a new belt that is snug as can be. The gyro, when the heli is turned CC sends the tail slider over to the tail boom, as it should.
I have taken apart the tail servo, and found it operating ok.
I am hoping that someone can shed some light on this problem without going into the whole routine of the setup process, that I believe I am quite familiar with.
Thanks to all.
