Tail Gyro Glitch???
I flew My 450SE tonight and lost control of it landed in a bush, I broke a skid and one main blade after replacing the broken parts, I went back outside, took off and hovered and the tail kept on pulling to the left! I took a closer look at the Gyro thinking maybe it got hit and is out of line, but everything looks ok. I did not change any settings after the crash and before the crash everything was ok...

Anyone out there ever seen this problem?

YES!

Any type of minor crash can either push/pull either the tail servo slightly forward or aft, thus changing your setting. Also, it's possible the tail boom could have shifted a bit. Re-check your mechanical linkages with HH off before you fly to make sure your tail servo is sound.

i think trex3d is alluding to it. but, the direct answer is you need to go through the gyro's setup procedure any time you have a bump that may have affected the gyro, servo, or tail linkages.

in the case of a gy401 (you didnt say what you have) you need to retrim in non-HH--mechanically would be best rather than with TX trims, do the 3-flip switch maneuver (you did read the directions, right???), and reinitialize in HH and fly. you might even need to readjust your gain settings.
if it ain't broke, break it.
