What gyro?
What servo?
How far out are your ball on the servo?
Are you in h/h or normal ?

I've always set my tail up centered and let the gyro do it's job of holding a heading. I always fly in HH so I've never had a problem once my gain was set properly.

BTW, there is an ongoing debate on how to set up your tail, centered or offset. You could grab a can of worms & an opener, then sit back and enjoy the drama!
The less a man makes a clarative statement, the less likely he is to look like a fool in retrospect.

first of all make sure you have no trim in your radio in any flight mode.make sure you used the steel plte and both layers of foam,check your linkages move freely,and is your engine running rich.And make sure you have selected the right servo this is represented by two flashes or if you have a blue link or usb link select the servo you have.Some thing to get no with for now.I know I used lock tight why did my head explode

I went through all the above and more over I did reprogramed the gyro with the new firmware(vers.2) and setup the servo but I didn´t have time to go for a fly check yet and as soon I test it I will let you know.Thanks for the feed back.
