Mount Gyro on the helicopter.
Mount sideways so that Label is facing Left, Right, Forwards or Backwards of
helicopter. DO NOT install with Label facing Up or Down.
Do not install in the gyro near
the muffler of a Nitro Helicopter. Avoid direct heat from Engine or Muffler

times a second, That indicated Gyro is initializing in Rate mode and will
not continue until you switch to Heading Hold Mode. If so, switch to Heading
Hold mode and Gyro will finish initializing.

Adjustment before operation
In lock mode, the Servo will move
to one side when moving the Tail stick then stay there or drift.
If Tail is drifting in Lock mode,
use tail trim to get tail servo to not move when stick is still. Trim out
tail in flight.
On initial flight, Adjust Tail
servo position on the tail back and forth so that the tail is not spinning
where you centered the tail trim during Heading Hold mode.

wags,reduce Gain about 10% and test fly. Decrease Gyro gain if Tail is
Changes in Headspeed or other tail characteristics may facilitate need to
change the Gyro Gain.
