Raptor 50, DX7, AR7000 rx, Futaba 401 gyro. Wire from gyro to gear channel. Question is why does the gyro come out of heading hold when I go to stnt 1 or 2 ??? When I come out of normal the light on the gyro goes from solid to flashing and I am not in heading hold. Flight modes are all selected to 1 and the rate settings are currently 75%.

Check your rudder trim for all flight modes. The DX7 has separate trims for each flight mode...

Hell... I can fix that.
Uh oh..

I posted an option/answer that I use to keep the gyro in heading hold all the time in the Radio/gyro forum.

Sorry I don't use a 401 with my DX7, but what george0079 said, I believe, is true of any gyro.

Anyway, hope the info from both forums help in sorting out what you need to fix (coming out of heading hold in stnt 1 and stnt 2) or accomplish (staying in heading hold all the time).

Everyone is here on the forums to help. If no one asks the question(s) when we are baffled, then no one can share the information.

Happy flying

Yup, told him that in response to a PM.

Double flash, pause, double flash, pause...

That means it's getting a rudder input. When the light is off it's in rate mode.
