Hi Guys,
Need your help. I've been flying my 3G V2.0 for over a year w/o a problem until I decided to install the V3.0. Now, for some reason the tail is not in heading hold.
I've tried to reverse the gyro servo but the LED on the 3G controller turned red. Besides that, I noticed when I turn the heli by hand to the left/right (yaw) the gyro doesn't compensate (this is still when the LED is in red). Please note that this just started happening when I upgrated to V3.0. I didn't have this problem with my V2.0. Can you please tell me what to do in order to fix it?

Im using Futuba T8FG radio
Gyro settings
Normal 40
Iddle 1 36
Iddle 2 34

One more question, do you have to reset the pitch and thr curve to 0,25,50,75,100 when you download to V3.0 and then make the adjustments for idle 1 and 2 in DIR mode?

Thanks in advance and Enjoy the long weekend

3G or 3GX?

Loading new software in the FBL controller won't make your gyro all of a sudden work differently.

Whatever puts it in heading hold prior to the upgrade will continue to put it in heading hold mode after the upgrade.

Reversing the gyro won't fix it, nor will reversing the rudder channel. That ONLY affects which way the servo moves when you move the rudder stick, or turn the nose of the heli. The same is true for reversing the correction direction of the gyro.

Heading Hold/Normal mode are controlled by the GAIN setting at your transmitter.

If in doubt after an upgrade, go through the FBL setup procedure again. It doesn't take long, and you will know what you have in the end.
