Guys I could use some help with a friends new Align 600Le with a GP 780. Initially it went right into setup mode, we checked the frame rate, speed, ds, but when we went to set the travel it kicked out of setup and we cannot get it back in. When we hold the button down it just reinitializes. It's with an 8fg and I tried rebinding etc. Is there a factory reset or something to try? Any suggestions?

Thanks

I do not have a GP780 - I have the GP750 which is pretty close.

I've never had a problem getting into setup, just press the button for 2 to 3 seconds.

If it isn't getting into setup mode, I would have to guess maybe the button is damaged.

They are pretty simple - no real "factory reset" that I know of.

You could try to toggle between heading hold & rate to verify the gyro is alive.
The status LED should change from green to red (green = HH, red is rate).
The gain channel should be above 51% for HH and below 49% for rate.

Also, does the gyro command the tail rotor servo as you would expect when you twist the heli around on the bench?

Tks for the reply. I did try to switch between HH and rate which it does change. However, even then it doesn't allow setup in either mode. Yup the rotation on the heli is correct when moving the tail. Initially it was incorrect, but it allowed me to change that when I was in setup at first. Speaking with Assurance RC, they said they don't deal with Canadian customers like this and gave me the dealer up here, who doesn't deal with customers, so I went back to the LHS where we bought it and they said they don't stock the gyro. So now I send it to the LHS, 5 hrs away, who inturn will send it to be repaired or replaced. Turn around should be about a month.

I've run across this several times with the 780. There's no fix it needs to go in.

Align 780
I just now seen this post, I had same problem and have had a few 780s, I found this gyro either works or it dont,also it is much better suited for electric helis then nitro, the last one I took out of a new package was DEAD, I am out of the 780 business.
