What does your gain setting on your gyro say, if anything, about your heli? Does a heli that needs only a lower gain mean it has less vibration/shake than one that requires a higher gain to remain steady? Sorry if this is confusing..

electronic gain of the gyro is but one factor in a complex chain of
things in what is a feedback control system.

Unless you have some other mechanical problem, gyro gain says very little about your heli, and more about your setup. For example: If you move your tail rotor control rod out one hole on the servo horn, you will need less gyro gain. You see, there's electronic gain, and there's mechanical gain. The composite of these two gain functions determine where you have to set your electronic gain for a stable system. The sum wants to be a constant in order to make the system stable. The best point of operation where the performance is at its highest is where the gain is just below the point where the system becomes unstable. A gain that's too low is sacrificing performance, and a gain that's too high makes the system unstable.

Another variable that can affect the gain of the system is wider or longer tail rotor blades.
