Re: gyro 401

All Headlock gyros should power up with the transmitter set to HH mode, otherwise they will not initialize correctly. On the 401, powering up in RATE will account for a steady flash after normal initialization period.

NOTE: Even if the gyro does initialize correctly in HH mode, switching to RATE mode or moving the rudder stick from center will have the light go out. You should also ensure the rudder trim and trim offset are both set to 0 before powering up the gyro.

Most older Futabas show the gyro channel from 0-100%, with the switch point at 50%. Anything above 50% selects HH mode with the further away from that switch point increasing gain.

Below 50% selects RATE mode with the same effect on gain for that mode the further away from center.
I know there's money in aviation........I put it there!
