Alright guys,

I'm asking this to see one last time before I decide to ditch this thing and get a GY240. I am still having a dirft with this gyro in both modes. I've tried setup as per the finless vid and I'm still having this happen. I can compenstae the drift (to an extrent, but never find the "happy ground" between the two directions i.e. a nuetral).

I started out with the gain pot maxed (as per finless) and have my gain in HH at 85% (radio setting) and the rate ay somewhere around 60% in the radio. I have the sense connection to ch5 (for radio gain control). But what I'm am still seeing is a slow rotation to the right (actually nose left). In a course on 30 seconds I probably drift about 5 degress and continue to do so if I don't copensate with the stick to negate. But the process starts over again. I can use the trim setting to slow this down but never can get it to totally go way because if I go to far it starts again in the other direction. Because I have no subtrim with this guy, I have to control the servo creep using the trim. I started out with this gone (no creep) but this put me back into the drifting (nose left) scenario. If I adjust gain in HH it just gets tighter and gets the hard rapid wag evenetually.

I am asking this, is my process wrong here? Should I just switch to rate mode, move the servo back and forth (at my current rate gain setting) to negate the rotation, then go into HH mode and adjust gain (in that mode) from there? The vid didn't really go into much detail after the initail setup (i.e where to go from here).

Is it even possible to defeat this at all or am I faced with "as good as it gets" with this gyro? I really don't want to replace it, but the price that I found on a replacement of the Gy240 variety is fairly reasonable (even if its used). I know from reading from others that they really like this one. Don't get me wrong here I'm all for getting what I have to work.

Any thoughts on this would be appreciated, and thanks for your patience with me on this one.

JC

The drift is probably not going to go completely away - it is a $60 gyro...

Have you done the warm-up routine? Place the heli in the environment you're planning to fly, turn on tx, making sure rudder trim is centered, plug in heli, and go do something for about 5 minutes. When you come back, unplug the heli and immediately plug it back in. This really works on colder days, but it should help any time. The drift may still be there, but it should be less. A second or subsequent battery flown immediately after should show even less drift.

I have a T'bee 6g, and I'm pretty happy with it. Yes, it drifts, but it holds great in fast sideways flight and doesn't budge in a wind gust or pop-up.

A soul in tension is learning to fly
