I now realize that I setup the GY401 in HH from the start....... It holds rock solid and don't mind leaving it be. But, Are there any benefits of flying in rate mode over HH?

some may not agree but
with the larger helis it is better to learn with none h/hold
so that you learn to control the tail
so that if you get into trouble you are more likely to get out of it
with the smaller helis i am not to sure ?
some rely on h/hold to much

I've heard that (I don't have a 401 myself) many people use HH for Hover and 3D and non-HH mode for FFF. Non-HH mode will more easily 'weathervane' and you won't have to fly the tail quite as much doing circuits and figure eights. You can set the 401 up to switch modes when you switch flight modes... I have a 240 and you really do have to remember to remember to push the tail around in FFF.

not first hand info, but that might help ya.

I'm already use to rate from my piccolo...not the same, I know... I don't do any 3D, I'm more into the scale thing so from what your saying it probably won't matter for me?

Your fine in hh mode, no need for non heading hold, non heading hold will be a thing of the past one day, just like mechanical gryos. but this is just my opinion. sure you got to use the rudder stick a little more, but you might as learn now.

I think that an important point to be made for non-HH is that you can reorient yourself quicker when you "lose the picture" of what's happening. When the heli gets too far away and you don't know which way it is facing, it helps to apply a lot of power and get it into FFF quickly, then make the assumption that the tail is toward the rear of the direction of flight and apply the appropriate cyclic and rudder to aim the thing back at you.

Learning loops can be better in non hh-mode also due to weathervaneing

just remember you better have your revolution mixing setup in non heading hold if you going to throw the heli around to keep the tail from kicking around then you have to be able to disable it to run heading hold properly, which depends on the radio your using, so you might not even have a chance to run it in nonheading hold correctly because of the revolution mixing being turned off. just because you can turn on and off your hh mode does not mean your turning on and off your revolution mixing.
