On my Trex 450 and on my 4g6 Walkera, I've noticed the tail servo does not self correct on the bench. Is it dependent on the heli being in flight to auto correct? Simple question.

Picked up an AR6115 rx a few days ago for the 450 and set it up this eve, it's almost time to fly. Managed to trouble shoot where all the servo plugs go on the rx (took them off an ar6100 originally on the 450), and how to access the dx7 for all the control parameters. Forgot I saved a copy of the manual to my comp when I first got the machinery last year.

The tail does not center when in HH mode. Move the heli on the bench and you will see the tail move in the opposite direction

The tail servo will center when in rate mode, and most gyros will center when you are in the menu for setting the limits. However, like was said, when in heading hold the servo will not center on the bench when you move the heli or the rudder stick.

Yep, its giving a command and patiently waiting for the heli to obey, which it will in the air, but can't on the bench.

Thanks, much appreciated feedback. Now to change the esc to something capable instead of a 3amp esc which came with it (wha?). This is what I'm dealing with, rebuilding other dood's failures. I only learn more that way .
