Heading Hold Gyro, Having Problems, Need Help Please.
I bought the TeleBee Gyro on recomendation from the the lhs guy saying it will make my learning much easier, and this this gyro is a very good one, esspecially for the price.
This is for on my Blade CP Pro

Now my problem, I hooked it up according to the instruction, I have the lable/led pointed to the tail rotor, mounted on the little perch where the tail boom mounts kinda.
Anyways, I plugged everything in and turned my ch5 knob all the way to the negative, like this it flies exactly how it did befor the gyro, apparently its supposed to, so perfect.

But when I turn it to the positive side, the tail spins up way befor the main rotors, and the heli spins clockwise at a fairly good rate, even once the main rotors have lift.
Now I havent flown with a HH befor, but I am pretty certain its not supposed to do that.

I tried flipping the little switch on the side of the gyro, and that had no apparent effect.

Please help, this is very frustrating.

is the gyro reverse switch set properly?if not the heli will do a nasty piro at spoolup(guess how I know this?)the gyro does make the t/r spin up at spool up but it should even out once you get to lift off speed, most people learn to compensate with rudder....to tell if the gyro is set right secure it down(I hold it it my hand but I'm NOT recommending that to anyone)and give it a little throttle,when you rotate the heli counterclockwise the tail rotor should speed up to counter the movement and vice versa(slows when clockwise rotation)Compass helis Support Team

Ok I think I just wasnt giving it enough time, still very much learning and the thought of throttling up more when the heli is spinning clockwise on the ground just didnt come to mind.

Seems almost like the tail motor isnt strong enough to really hold the heading that good, but its still a whole heck of a lot better then without the gyro.

Now I just need somewhere to fly with more room, the largest area I clear of obsticals without my live in gf flipping out is about 7x7'

My main gaol with the HH was to have it hold its heading in the light breeze that is constant outside here. So now I need to venture outside.
As soon as I can figure out how to make sure the tail doesnt hit the grass though.

They need to make a gyro that can hold a hover for you, that would be sweet.

[/quote]They need to make a gyro that can hold a hover for you, that would be sweet.[quote]....even though the tail on these leaves a lot to be desired in flight you should be able to get a VERY solid hover with an HH gyro on a CPP....did you set the gain and proportion on the 3in1 to 0 ? try the gain at about 60-70% for starters and see what happens....you can increase till the tail wags then back off a little and thats the sweet spot...the heli should hold fine in light wind not perfect but definately flyable...when my blade was set up right and flying at its best I could hover a whole pack in my den without touching the rudder and the heli would hold its heading....speaking of rudder you will learn to feed in some rudder when lifting off to compensate for that...its all part of the CP learning curveCompass helis Support Team

Well, I can get the tail to hold pretty solid now, it just drifts a slight bit, and thats inside. I still havent touched the gain on the actual gyro or the 3in1 yet though, do you think I should?

For me to hover still requires alot of input from the right stick to keep it in one spot, as much as I try and fine tune it to almost hold itself, I just cant seem to get it, so I think its about as good as its going to get.

I am already starting to hit the rudder right as I take off to keep its heading.

What I ment with a gyro that would hold a hover for me, was that it would be sweet if it would hover in one spot with only throttling up, no other control movements.

Turn the gyro on the 3n1 to the
far Left (off). When you spool up
hold full Left Rudder as you
increase the throttle to make the
main blades rotate. Once the mains
blades are spinning, ease the rudder
back to the center. Slowly increase
your throttle. Upon lift off
you will probably have to input
some right rudder. Hope it helps ?
