Ok Im reading the manual for my DX8. I cam accross something they talk about but I dont see on the radio.

In the manual, page 33, gyro section, first paragraph and again in the "Adjusting the Rate Values" sub section.

(http://www.spektrumrc.com/ProdInfo/...0-Manual_EN.pdf)

They state that the DX8 will display and "N" normal gain values and a "T" for Tail lock.

Where the heck will the "N" or "T" actualy be displayed?
They dont show it in any of the pictures (and I dont see it on my Tx)

It should be above the battery indicator.

Nope that displays the Flight Mode. I didnt see an option to turn that on or off. How did you get yours to display ? Is it displaying "F" and "T" ?

I do not think this feature is in the current software edition.

Mine does not do this either

The reason may well be that different gyro's go into head lock at different gain rates, and the TX can only report whether it is above 50% or below 50 % atv, so it could report it was in heading lock, when it actually was in rate mode. this would cause confusion so it is better left off.
It could be re introduced if they start to make their own gyro's then they would be set to work with the DX8 say as per Futaba and their own gyros

Good luck

I seem to remember one of the Spektrum guys (Andy K. ?) that offers support at RCG said that was a mis-print in the manual

Here is the response from Horizon

Hello Terrance,

Thank you for contacting Horizon Hobby's Product Support Department.

Page 33 is an error in the manual. It will not display a T or N on the gyro scree. Gyro gain anything over 50 percent you are in heading lock, below that you are in rate mode. This also depends on the gyro and what gain you have to set to get above 50%.

For further assistance, please use the URL located on our website's Contact Us page. If you are referencing a past request, please include the following ticket number when prompted: #####

Don't forget, our phone staff is available at 1-877-504-0233, Monday through Friday, 8am-7pm CST, Saturday 8-5pm CST and Sunday Noon-5PM CST.

Thank you,
David
