Well,

I think I finally have my heli trimmed pretty good considering
I am just beginning.
Got it home in one piece again.One hover was about 20 feet high.
Elevator and aileron cyclic seemed ok but the tail was the hardest to keep straight.
I set Revo mix to zero but I am using a non holding gyro(old one).
Should I set Revo mix to 20 % ??

What gyro?

You could try turning on revo or you could try increasing the gyro gain. OR you could buy a modern gyro:-)

Gyro
I am using the older G 153 gyro. Will use the newer GY 240 on my newer machines, but for now this one is good for taking the lickin.
Programmed some revo last night, now my G2 won't throttle up all the way.

I never used Revo , even on my old mechanical gyros . To be honest , I did try to set Revo mix up many years ago , along with acceleration mix , but did such a bad job of it I was lucky to get the machine down in one piece . After that I decided to just learn to fly the tail better .

At the end of the day , it gets dark .

If you have the rudder trimmed for hover, and then while going up it tends to turn nose to the right, then the REVO is too high. You didn't say if you are flying electric or nitro. If electric, with a tail rotor motor, then the state of the battery charge will also effect rudder trims - so what worked at the start of the flight will not be right as the battery charge goes down, so you need to control the tail all the time anyway.

Revo?
Cassat;
At first I was going to say get a modern gyro but after thinking about it I think it is great that you insist on using a mechanical gyro!
Many of the modern era flyers know nothing about flying the tail!
When a problem occures with their HH gyro in flight the ship is toast.
I have several mechanical gyros and should probably hook one up again!
Thanks Junkpilot

When you fly JUNK it's hard to tell when you've crashed!

Need More Tail
Well, when I learn how to move the tail around a bit more, I don't have a problem with more electronics on board. Keeps the learning curve going as far as I'm concerned.

Revo Up
The Revo Up mix ended up being at 53 percent after todays hovers.
Clutch was burned and slipping , so have to set the low side with the new clutch.
