--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Can anybody tell me witch way is the HH - Rate mode on the RDS8000? I have the GY611 with 9256 servo but I'm getting a drift no matter what I do on the rudder servo.

I switched the Gyro to NOR to adjust the servo linkage for the neutral position but when I go back to AVCS the drifting begins again.

Look on the gyro display. Normal has an "N" on the percentage read out. You can always reverse the gain channel to get switches the way you want. If you have drift, you likely have some trim in there somewhere

I agree - check your trim in each flight mode, make sure they are all at center and your sub-trim is centered.

Are you initializing the gyro in HH (AVCS) mode? Futaba gyro's can't be initialized in normal mode. Does the tail "creep" on the bench when in HH mode?

yes it does,
I found some interesting set up videos on mikeysrc.com so I think that my gyro issue will soon be over.
Thank you all for your help.
