How many of you are flying using the set ups for pitch/throttle curves and gyro gain given in the back of the Hirobo assembly manual? If you are not using those setups, what are you using?

My throttle curve is as suggested and the pitch curve is close (I set it using a pitch gauge), but the gyro settings are way off from the suggested settings in the 9C User's Guide and completely different from the Futaba "team tips". Hate to say it, but this gyro buisness has me VERY confused.

I've got a 9 CHP SUPER, OS 50 HYPER W/MPII, GY401 and I'm using Cool Power 15%.

Personally, I never follow the curves etc given in manuals. Here's how mine is set up:

-10 to +10 on pitch in all flight modes, and whatever throttle curve works out to 1650 in normal, then my governor takes over in idle up and is switchable between 1850 and 1950. For starting values on throttle, I'll eyeball the low end so that the throttle barrel is about 1mm open according the the marks on the side, and hover point, which is about 3/4 stick is around 50%. That'll generally get the headspeed in the right range, and I can fine tune it with a tach.

For the gyro on a 401, go to the gyro screen, and set it so that it is active, and put the gain on AVCS mode to 50, and on rate mode to 50. Go fly and adjust form there. On the 401, 50 is a good baseline, it generally won't wag, and it'll hold very well.

Don't think that by following the curves etc in the back that you are going to be able to just go out and fly it, you have to use a pitch gauge to set it up properly with your equipment.

The curves in the Hirobo manual are targeted at F3C and are quite typical - but not ideal for 3D

I agree 100% I never even read those setups in any manual. The only sure way is to set it up yourself. That way you know what every setting is and does and what effect changing a setting will have on the bird.

Of course you dont when you are only capable of using 70% of the engines power.
