moved gyro
I had my gyro mounted on the side of the frame of the Mini Titan and want to move it to the tail boom housing. But when I do this the MT spins counter clockwise. Do I need to reverse the gyro and reset the trims AGAIN? I have an ALIGN rce500x gryo. (on a budget, 401 in the near future) thanks

Assuming it was working correctly before you moved it...

...when you moved it did you happen to flip it upside down from what you originally had? If you did, you MUST reverse the GYRO at the gyro settings.

When you moved it, did you do something stupid like mount the gyro in the WRONG orientation -- with its axis not vertical, but now horizontal (mounted the gyro on one of its four sides, instead of top or bottom?)

When moving the gyro, all I did was unstick it fron the frame and mount it on the tail boom housing face up so I could make adjustments. I will reverse tha gryo, on the gyro itself or on the tx?Always Learning LOGO 400 V-bar, TT R50 V2 Blue, RJX Xtreme 50, Vibe 50N, TZ Frenzy 50.

If all was moving correctly BEFORE you moved the gyro, ONLY REVERSE the GYRO if you mounted it upside down relative to how it was mounted earlier.

Flipping the gyro over (top to bottom, or bottom to top) reverses the direction in which the gyro corrects and that has to be accounted for in the gyro setup. The gyro does not affect how the transmitter moves the servo, so leave the TX alone.
