So I have a 401. On my intial hop I had to feed in a little right rudder. Is this cause the Heading hold isn't turned on right, or that the sensitivey isn't turned up high enough? I'll fly from grass cause the shakes on the Rappy 50 are too much for me on the concrete to watch for tail wag so do I just keep bumping up the sensativity till it starts to wag then back down?

I think so. I might have to go back and redo it to make sure.

When you turn it on is the gyro light on solid red ? If so its in heading hold and should not drift,if it does your way off on the mechanical setup

OK, got it to where it's a steady light by scolling the inputs to the other 80% mark and the light stays steady now. That should be it.
