    AF5.5 Gyro settings

    Ive asked this question a couple of times over on the official forums, no replies so i'll try here!

    I'm hoping someone can help me out here, i have been trying for months now to disable the Heading hold gyro on the helis. It says in the manual: (The GainAngle shows how the gyro reacts to deviations from the set position and how the tail reacts. Enter
    zero to deactivate the Heading Hold function)

    This does not make any difference to the gyros response for me, entering zero changes nothing it remains in what seems like hh, I just want the good ole fashioned rate gyro back ;(

    I do very little 3D and hh does not suit my style!


    Please anyone!! [&:]

    Thanks

    Edit: using a JR DSX9 with no changes to the settings from standard

    RE: AF5.5 Gyro settings

    All of them! they all seem to have hh

    But i'm working on the trex450

    Do you think it could be a transmitter setting?

    EDIT: I also have Phoenix sim and switching between hh and rate gyro works perfectly

    RE: AF5.5 Gyro settings

    To get the rate gyro feeling and weather vaning, set GainAngle to zero to switch off hh, then reduce GainOmega to a very small value (around
    0.02) and adjust the Offset such that the tail compensates the torque in hover. After that, increase the GainOmega again to get the desired damping. For the T-Rex 700 the values I tested are

    GainAngle 0.0
    GainOmega 0.1
    Offset 0.22

    This gives a very soft feeling on the tail.

    For the T-Rex 450 I would use the follwoing settings

    GainAngle 0.0
    GainOmega 0.1
    Offset 0.14

    You can even use lower GainOmega / damping and use some compensation from your transmitter (throttle/collective -> tail rotor mix)

    Hope this helps
