just installed my new 520 gyro did not know it was already set for the 1520us servo. Im using a new Futaba BLS251 760us. Got a single red flash for the BLS 760 but my servo does not move at all. Upon start-up the servo moves 3 times really quick. When I move my transmitter tail control nothing happens. What gives. This combo is supposed to be very good. Also when it starts up I get 3-4 slow blue flashes then rapid blue and then solid blue.

How much did you try to move the servo while it was set to 1520?

OK I think I figured it out ... first my two wires going into the 520 dual connector were reversed. Fixed that and now servo operates normally. When it powers up its solid red for HH. But I read in the instruction, HH is solid Blue. Anyway when I move the tail stick left and right; the LED on the 520 goes violet when released is solid Red. Followed instructions on page 16 but that was with the reversed wires. I will try it again and see what happens. Boy I sure love my 401 siplicity at its best. Im sure when I set this 520 up right its going to ROCK!

It should go solid RED after boot up for HH. Go back and check the direction of the gain channel if you're just using a simple toggle or look at the radio's gyro menu to confirm you're in AVCS. It's normal for the LED to change color with stick movement.

What radio are you using?

Solid Red = AVCS Mode (Heading Hold)
Solid Blue = Normal Mode (Rate Mode)

My bad. CRS syndrome - I went into the shop to check the LEDs and promptly forgot what I saw by the time I reached the keyboard. Other posted edited.
