long, but experimental :)Here's what I did, and it appears to work....
I went through the Channel Assignment process, assigned the Autorotation to channel 7. In the 9C AUX-CH menu I set CH7>Sw-G (top right forward switch). I didn't find any difference in operation when setting the End Points for 7:AUX either at 100/100 or 0(off position)/100(on position). Throttle Hold now works. You can adjust your idle percentage in the THR-HOLD menu in the 9C. Mine is at POSI>+30%
For the Gyro stuff, in Channel Assignment I deselected what had been set at Chl. 5. I couldn't adjust the Channel Display slider for the Gyro, it wasn't selectable with both control panels open simultaneously. My Gyro Sens in the 9C is set at Mode>GY, MIX>ACT, Rate-Up AVC 50%, CNTR>AVC 50%, DOWN>AVC 50%, SW>E (my Idle-up switch top left forward), End Points for Channel 5 are 100/100
After finishing the Channel Assigment, I closed out of that and then went into the Model Parameters and checked to see that Gyro Sensibility was at 100% and the Piezo-Integral gyro was selected, it was, done there.
Now, once I'd hit F4 to start the sim, and pull up the Channel Display and saw that the Chl. 5 was at 59%, I manually slid it upto 110%. I took off and did some stick banging piros and whipped the heli around and it appears that the tail is locked real tight, as it should.
I saved the Channel Assignment and shut down the program. I restarted it, pulled up the Channel Display and saw that Chl 5 was at 59% again. So I then went into the 9C Gyro Sens menu and tinkered with the sensitivity numbers. With the Gyro in AVC mode at 50%, Reflex was showing 59%, when I moved the number upto 100% in the radio, I got 110% in Reflex.
Ok, to test something different, I assigned the Gyro in the 9C to Switch A and set Up>AVC 100%, Down>AVC 100%. I shut down Reflex, restarted it, Reclaibrated Center (Channel 5 came up as not centered), then pulled up the Channel Display and Chl. 5 showed 110%. I hit F4 to start the sim and the tail was locked nice and solid.
This is with CH5>NULL in AUX-CH. Also, when I'd INH the Gyro Sens in the 9C the percentage in Reflex's Channel Display for CHl. 5 would drop to 2%.
Another method I tried was in Gyro Sens, INH all that, setting AUX CH5>SW-A, E.Point 5:GYR 86/86, with the switch down CHl. 5 in Reflex reads at 110%, with it up it reads -104%.
Also, all my Sub-trims are zeroed, no Trims, no Offsets, all ATVs aside from Chl. 7 are at 100/100, all pitch and throttle curves are linear (0, 25, 50, 75, 100), no Revo Mix, all other Prog. Mixing is INH.
So all this mess confirmed that despite having nothing selected for the Gyro Sensitivity in Reflex's Channel Assigment menu it still
looks for something on Channel 5 from your transmitter. Despite the manual setting of 100% in the Model Parameters it doesn't seem to proliferate anywhere else in the program reguardless of your Tx settings. If nothing else, I think it sets a range of how much sensitivity the model will allow. Like, I think if you set it at 50% and had your AVC set to 100% in the Tx, the most the model would simulate is 50%...I think?
So I think it doesn't really matter what switch you use, other then your Throttle Hold switch, so long as the percentage you specify in your Tx tops out the percentage in Reflex's Channel Display.
So, after all that experimenting, I went back and set things up as follows:
9C Tx settings:
E.Point for 5:GYR 100/100
AUX-CH CH5>Sw-E (Idle-Up switch)
GYRO SENS MODE>GY, MIX>ACT, RATE-UP>AVC100%, CNTR>AVC100%, DOWN>AVC100%, SW>E
Channel Assignment, Gyro Sensitivity, no channel selected
Model Parameteres, Gyro Sensibility, 100%
Gryo System, Piezo-Integral
With the Channel Display active, I get 110% on Channel 5 in all flight modes (Nor, Idl1, 2, 3 & Hold) and a solid, tight holding tail.
I'm leaving mine this way. I just thought it was wierd that despite the Channel Assigment for the Gyro Sensibility being unassigned, the Tx being setup to where Channel 5 was Null, Reflex still responded to Gyro Sensitivity adjustments made in the Tx . Also despite having specified 100% Gyro Sensibility in the Model Parameters, I'd get 2% on the Channel 5 in Channel Display if I INH the Gyro Sensitivity in the Tx.
Obviously there is no one way of obtaining these results, but with my final settings in the Tx, they best mimic the settings I'd normally have for my real heli sans the 100% sensitivity in AVC since in reality I'd prolly get some rediculous tail wag with my GY401.
Hope this helps someone.
