Default PLEASE HELP, trying to set up Spektrum DX8 with GY401 on my Raptor 30

I need help trying to figure out what happened with my radio an I think I screwed up some settings. I just built another Raptor and trying to get the radio setup.

I built the Raptor and was doing radio setup and the tail was working fine, then I guess I must have screwed something up because the gyro no longer works when I move the tail around with the heli on the table.
I know the gyro still works because when I go into gyro from the function list and take it off inhibit and select gyro on (which gives me just a single rate) or set it to gyro and it gives me 3 rates for each posititon on the gear switch and change the rate positive or negative then the servo moves when I move the tail with the heli on the table.

I could have sworn that the gyro function said inhibit before i started messing with it.
I'm still a beginner and can only do slow forward flight and hovering. I like the tail lock mode and have always only used this mode.

Any help would be great.

Thanks

Make sure that whichever mode you are using that channel 5 has some number in it. In gyro mode if it is at 50% that is zero gain so you do one direction or the other for HH or Rate mode.
