Yes, as I covered in my instruction thread you need to keep it absolutely still till the initializing is complete. You also want to ensure it boots up in HEADLOCK mode.

One other little trick is to try and let the heli/gyro sit in the flying environment for a bit if different from storage or transport. Temp changes can cause all sorts of fun, even with the very good GY401.
I know there's money in aviation........I put it there!

Re: In praise of HK500

Thanks Gary
As it is the Temp my heli rests in is normally only a few degrees different than outside air temp, I keep my shed just warm enough to keep the moisture down. On my 500 I have a switch on the side to turn everything on so the radio and batteries are normally ready when I hit the switch, I also don't always start it on dead level ground at times and this time I think I repositioned it just after turning on the switch.
