hey all been a while but i am getting back into helis again. bought a raptor 30 rtf and i switched out the stock transmitter and gyro as i had cut the wire a little when i cut the tywrap. so now i have a futaba 9 cap and a 401 in place but the tail is all over the place!! .......
Do you guys start up in rate mode then switch to hh mode when up to speed?
ITS been a while since i have flown my 450 rex se and that is where i took the 401 from and it worked great but i would start it up in hh mode and it worked great for me. so i know the gyro is good
i need help bad it driving me nuts

oh sorry i have the fast module in with this set up

No, the 401 MUST initialize in Heading Hold mode. You can tell if it initialized correctly if the red light comes on solid (after flashing a few times).

The following assumes the tail is assembled correctly including the twist direction of the belt:

Give right rudder, the servo should pull the rod to the front, if thats wrong reverse the rudder channel.

Turn the nose to the left, again, the servo should pull the rod (it should feed in right rudder) if thats wrong reverse the gyro.

Make sure the channel 5 end points are 100/100

In the gyro sens menu set

MIX = ACT (not INH)
MODE = GY
Rate UP AVC 50
Rate DN Nor 50
Switch (whichever)

That will set the up position of the switch you choose to 50 percent gain in HH mode.
