I'll try to keep this short and sweet. I recieved a Webra 61 P5 and a Genesis Pro+ pipe and intalled it on my heli. In order to avoid interference between the pipe hold down and rudder linkage, I switched the servo to the opposite side of the heli. The servo was reversed due to this switch. So left is still left and right is still right. Now I am back to square one with the linkage. I started it up and just as it got light on the skids, it made a violent swing to the right. No damage was done as I set it down quickly. I think the revo was heading in the wrong direction as well, so I disabled revo for now.

My question is, where do you set the rudder up before the first flight when you build a new heli? Or what is maybe the best way to go about doing this? All I have is a Century Piezo gyro. Any help will be appreciated

The first thing you have to do is put rev mix back in
then bench test the gyro to see if it is moving the right way.
turn on radio and heli and move
heli by the tail and see if gyro corecet it the right way.
If not rev. the gyro.
set gyro gain to 50% center all tran stick, fold tail rotor blades up
and take a ruler should be about 20mm between them, starting
point. and flightcheck it.
It is a good gyro but you have to know how to do revo mixing

Yep, I reversed the servo but not the gyro! What a dumb mistake. She is doing much better now
