Hi all,

Sorry to sound ignorant but can somebody please explain in as simple as possible how to enter the correct setup menu for setting the rudder gyro gain? I'm not sure I even understand how to determine the current setting but as far as I can comprehend, I believe I am in setting N because the orange led lights up at N at power up then status eventually stays blue If I understand correctly, that means heading hold Mode? Also, from what I understand, I should really be setting the gyro at G? Finally, how to switch from heading hold to normal mode to trim rudder and back to heading hold for flight. I am reading the manual but have trouble with comprehension.

I have the Microbeast PLUS on a T-Rex 500L, a 550L and a 700X. I am using a Futaba T14SG and R7008SB. Any comments appreciated. Thanks!

Well, in your 14sgh what is your gear channel settings? Because I've always set my gyro gain between f-g using the gear channel settings. Go on youtube, look up Ron Lund microbeast setup with Futaba and he does a good job explaining it.

I hope this helps some, you basically decrease your number on your gear channel until the light is between f and g on the unit. Let me know if this has helped, good luck.

Hi Demetrius,

I did like you suggested and watched Ron Lund's video.

Watch at YouTube

It couldn't have been more simple. I will test fly next week once I get back from my work stint to Korea. A couple of questions:

1) Why did he change the channel 5 from GYRO to GEAR?

2) I got the Microbeast gyro settings to 'G' (orange LED on 'G' for the initial set up as recommended. When I switch the SF to ON, the status LED changes to purple (normal) and OFF status turns to blue (heading hold). Do I have to re designate channel 5 back to GYRO or can I just leave it in GEAR?

Thanks much!
