Default Axe figure eights video

Finally got the video connection to work on the new computer. Thought I would share. (What happened to my hair!)

Impressive without having a HH gyro, you sure can control the tail.

You have to adjust the 3 in 1 to hold the tail for you.

This has been discussed many times with different techniques.

There are three screws on the 3 in 1 board. The top one is for bias. It adjusts the rotation rate per stick movement in reguards to getting the heli to rotate the same rate with equal stick input. The middle screw is gyro gain. It should be about 3/4 turned to the right. If the tail motor pulsates, turn it down. The bottom screw is your tail motor trim. If you have lots of trim on the transmitter for the tail motor off to one side, you can use this screw to off set it. For example: the heli wants to rotate nose right. You slide the trim on the transmitter to the left to where is nearly all the way over. To get more adjustment, turn the bottom screw in a direction that gets the heli to rotate to the left, then slide the trim slider on the transmitter back towards the center. This adjustement can sometimes cause the tail to wag, which then requires turning down the gyro or vice-a-versa.

You can hear in the vid my tail motor is changing speed quite often, but the tail isn't wagging.
