New DX7 & AR7200BX
hey guy's, have any of you ran into an issue after binding the new dx7 to the BX you don't get full L/R rudder? if I give L or R rudder it only moves half way in either direction.if I bind back to the old dx7 it does fine. I did go to menu E to redo tail end points funny thing is while in menu E I get full throws L/R but once out of menu its still the same. I also tried moving the servo travel from default 100% to 150 still the same. I think I'm missing something in the radio. but with it being new and having more features I'm not sure what is. any input appreciated, thanks

Simple...in the gyro menu, change the "channel", at the bottom of the screen, to "Gear". I believe the default is "Aux2". Use Aux2" for the throttle gov sense.

Also, make sure you have the right frequency sellected in the Beast X setup..."D" tail frequency?

The usual default channel used by Spektrum transmitters for gyro control is Channel 5. That is also the Channel that the AR7200BX expects to be controlling the tail gyro. You should at least check to make sure your TX has the Gear channel selected in the Gyro menu. Make certain you don't have the gyro gain set to zero, or a very small value.

Changing the TX rudder travel endpoints with a heading hold gyro only affects the maximum piro rate of your heli.

Left and right rudder travel limits are set in the gyro setup steps.

You have set the left and right travel limits using the AR7200BX "E" menu. The heli is sitting stationary on the ground. In Heading Hold mode, the rudder servo may not behave as you think it should. The gyro senses no movement and may not be driven to do anything about it.

What radio were you using previously?

With the OLD DX7 (JR 7202-based unit), if you use the Gyro Sense menu for gain, it will default to using Channel 7 for gain. The AR7200 BX won't like that and you will not be able to control the gain.

The older DX7 would allow you to change between channels 5 and 7 to control gyro gain.

If you used the Gear channel and switch to control gyro gain with the older DX7, that would have allowed you to control rudder gain using the gear switch.

If you know what you are doing, you can make the Gyro Sense control gyro gain using Channel 5.

But the default is Channel 7, the AR7200BX would never see it.

I've only had the new dx7 a day or so now. I like it a lot but it's a little harder to figure out than the old one. I've got the tail to act right to fly my trex 550 but it's still not totally right. I was flying today and noticed thaT when I hit throttle hold the tail jerks hard and I have no control over it. the heli hit the ground then tilted over, fortunately there was no damage due to low HS.
