HK401B Gyro
Folks,

I had an issue today where I connected all up, and was just about to take off, and noticed gyro light out, and rudder servo at full extent of travel.
Nil response at all from rudder stick.
-
Wiggled gyro connector at RX....no change.
-
Re-powered all, and all behave normally.
-
So, it seems as though the gyro had "crashed" internally.
-
The only thing different on this occasion, was that I had a somewhat messy battery connect up, ie, because main pack cable was strained, the connectors arced a couple of times prior to firm connection.
-
Is there a chance that a flaky initial power-up of the gyro could have "tripped it up" at all?
-
I cannot get it to fail at all now, and am convinced there really was no loose connection
-
Please shout if anyone has experienced this.
-
Many tks, Steve

Bad power at initialization, and most likely moving the heli around while it's booting up is never a good idea. Even with a cheap gyro.-----
