I’m stumped right now. I’m trying to setup the gyro in the menu of the DX18. I have no idea how to get the gains to move to 45. I’ve tried every configuration I can think of.

Have you gone to the gyro menu in the first setup screen and changed the settings. If I remember correctly when I had my DX18 setting the value to 56 gave 45 in panel 5 for gyro gain, HH. The same setting with a negative value is 45 gyro gain in rate mode. Have you assigned a switch for gyro gain in the transmitter?

In the gyro screen I have channel set to gear and switch set to D which is 3 position on face of radio above throttle. At pos 0, 1 and 2 all set at zero. Then when I go back to servo setup and adjust the travel on the gyro channel and it does nothing on the tail gain on the computer setup. I’m stumped.

Looked at your pictures in the PM you sent. Leave the servo setup screen how you have it at 100/100. Go to the gyro screen and adjust these numbers, that will change your gain settings. Like I said above, 56 should have you at 45 gain in the Brain setup program in HH mode. The inverse will put you in rate mode. I had my gyro gain on switch "B", which if I remember correctly was a two position switch. Nothing wrong with it being on switch "D".

If set to Gear and nothing is happening, try Aux2

Ok. Woke up early. Saw these replies. Jumped right into it. I put the gyro on gear and set to the two position rocker of switch A like you suggested. and changed the numbers in the gyro settings and as you can see on the ikon2 computer screen, the tail gain doesn’t budge. Pics should have attached but if not they’re uploaded into my gallery. Thank you guys for your help btw.

We have an Open House and Thanksgiving charity event this Saturday 18th.

Come up either way!

http://www.tractampa.com/OpenHouse/...enHouse2017.pdf

*In FM GYRO menu, just highlight [GEAR] and change to [Aux 2]

There's a photo in my gallery under MISC. I have mine switchable by a [Flight Mode] switch. Photo shows +75% in all modes for show and tell purpose. I actually have Rate -75% in Normal mode for a little extra fun scale flying.

Pete. I may take you up on Saturday if you don’t mind seeing if you can help me with this thing. I switched it to aux2 like you said and put in the numbers but the tail gain in screen hasn’t budged.

Hi, try the following ?

Go to Advanced Menu - Common - Receiver.
Make sure "Is set in software" is not checked.
Match the channel number for Tail Gain to your TX setup.

What are you expecting it to do in screen?

IF its for it to change from Hold to Rate, then for Rate the percentage must be a negative number. As per your photo they all are +75%

Pete. Not the screen on radio but computer. See where it shows the gain. That number needs to get raised to 45 per Ikons instructions. That number doesn’t budge for me. I need step by step instructions of how to raise that number on the tail to 45 on the computer screen using my radio.

Dawiev. You are the man. That was it. I had to click off the “is set in software button” on advanced settings on computer. Thank you. Stay around. I’ll probably need you soon lol.
