I do not have my gyro installed yet, as I got my gyro in the mail about an hour ago. The manual is not very clear. What I do not understand is that i have my servo perfectly centered before I plug it into my gyro, but when when it is in the gyro, it does not go back to center. I am familiar with other heli pilots who use the 401 that it centers when ever you plug it in. What do i need to do with my JR?

If the 401 or any Futaba gyro is in HH or AVCS mode, the servo will only center under the following circumstances:

You toggle the gyro to rate mode.
Move the tail rotor stick 3 times back and forth and the servo will center.

In the case of the JR, put the gyro into rate mode and it will center the servo. If it drifts, use some subtrim to cancel the drift.

Before some of y'all jump on me for using sub trim for cancelling drift on a HH gyro, just remember, this is a JR not a Futaba.

BTW, do a search on RR and there are plenty of threads on setting up the 500T.

Is the gyro plugged into the receiver properly. That is the first thing to ascertain.

I have the main plug in the rudder, and the white plug in the aux channel.
