T-Rex Rookie - HELP!

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
I have a "Rookie" question regarding a PG02 Gyro. I had my T-rex up and running on a airplane radio - worked fine! I upgraded the radio only to a Helicopter radio! I made all of the fine tuning adjustments and confirmed servo direction. Everything seems to be working right! Rotor head spins clockwise and tail rotor counter clockwise. The "Elevator" and "Aileron" functions move the disc in the porper direction the "Rudder" controls yaw in the proper direction BUT the gyro seems to be operating backwards? It's mounted on the rear platform with the adjustment screws facing outward just like it was previously? I had read that to test if you hold the chopper by the tail with you finger by the tiller on the tailrotor and yay the chopper the the left, you finger should get slightly pinched? Mine is operating backwards to that? and when you power up the chopper wants to spin? Any ideas? I assume it must be something with the radio setup?(Futaba 6XH) - THANKS

As the PG-02 is not fitted with a direction reversion switch, to reverse the correction of the tail, rotate the gyro through 180 degrees. That will correct the situation.

Solved the problem!
Worked opn the T-Rex last night! I'm learning you have to have patience with a chopper!
I tried reversinf the rudder servo - same problem. I physically turned the servo around to make the connection on the R/H side opposed to the L/H side - and magic - don't know why but the gyro is operating in the correct manner!
