I have a blade 400 that I put a metal gear digital tail servo and a 401 futaba gyro on. I also am using a DX8 Tx. I moved the gyro switch to Digital servo and turned the gain down to 0 because I read to do that in the gyro manual. The only way the gyro goes in to heading hold is if I go in the Tx and lower the rate to -1.0 and lower. So I tried to hover the heli when I try to turn the nose to the right the heli spends to the right and the same for when I turn the nose left. when I try to lower the gyro rate more the spinning gets worse. I looked in the DX8 manual it shows the gyro rate sould be 60 to 80 and when I set it to that. The gyro does not show a solid light showing its in heading hold. The only way the light stays on is like I said -1.0. If anyone nows anything please let me know!!!

Read through that thread. It's for DX7 setup but has a lot of other great info in it about setting up the 401 on diff radios. Got to give credit to RR member dkshema for the post.

More info, please. You're using a DX-8 TX, what about the receiver?

What channel is the gyro gain plug plugged into, in the receiver?

How are you trying to control the GYRO gain in your DX-8?

Should be able to get you going.
