On page 25 of the manual, it says to set Tail rotor ATV/EPA to 100%.

Then it says to Set D/R to 75%. It says to make adjustments to "these values" to adjust piro rate.

I've always used Trvl Adj/Rudd (JR radio) to adjust how fast or slow my heli piros. I've never used D/R for anything heli related. I've used Trvl Adj for all of my gyros (401, Solid-G, Mini-G, Spartan), and it always works fine.

So can I go ahead and leave the D/R alone on this GY520, and continue to use Trvl Adj like I've always done???

Saturday morning I flew my helicopter in my pajamas
How it got in my pajamas I'll never know

It's just using the dual rate instead of travel adjust. Move from 75 up if it's too slow, or down if it's too fast. OR, don't use dual rates- start w/ the travel adjust on 75 and move up or down to your preference.
(dual rates on 100%)

Hey Rock,
it's just like the jr770 in a way and in fact allgyros could be done this way.
You can use the ATV's to dial in your left and right hand piros to get them even.
Now with D/R it will change left and right piro rates equally.
If you just increased your ATV's it would still act like the 401/611 etc...
