............The servo horn is facing up, do I move it one whole up or one whole down?

you're kidding right? moving it in is always toward the servo regardless of which way the horn is pointing...........

Sorry, I guess I need to read more carefully.
I'll move it one hole in.

There is a very long thread on these gyro's at RC Groups.  They cover everything about them.  I reqd that one first.  They also have a list of servo that work well with this gyro.

I ordered two of them from chchelicopter.com before the ones at deal extreme showed up.  I tried every servo I have and I could not get the gyro to not drift.  I tried it on 3 different helicopters with 4 different servos.  It drifted, very, very slowly but it drifted. 

I check my setups and went over the helicopters with a fine tooth comb looking for any vibrations.  Nope.  No matter what I did they drifted.  Well I got pi$$ed and ordered 2 of the Logitch 2100T and 3100G combos for $110.00 each.  They work great.

A friend of mine had me put his EXI 450 together.  Well he had some funky clone of a telebee that work about as good as your thumb does.  I pulled it and put on the G401B and it worked just perfect.  No drift and holds like velcro.  He has a INO llabs high speed digital servo.  Look like the G401B and that servo like each other.

I still have 1 on the shelf.  I may order a Hyperion servo or see what I can come up with using the servo I have.  This gyro seems to like high speed servo in the .07 to .05 speed servos.  The faster the better.

So a fast servo is needed.
Does it have to be digital?

The best rated servo is the Hyperion 09.   It seems to work the best.  It runs about $34.00.  there is a GWS servo that works too.  I just do not know the number.

I believe it's the [link=http://www.hobbycity.com/hobbycity/store/uh_viewItem.asp?idProduct=4696]GWS PARK HPX F[/link], it works great for me (so far).

the silicone will add too much weight on the tail!    its going to throw your whole balance on the heli off.

Hey guys I have the G401b gyro from DX on my Frankenstein HK-450 got a Little video of it in action with the Hyperion DS-12GCP servo (.06 speed @6v .08 @ 4.8v) from AlleRC.com... Its a little bigger than the hyperion DS-09 but it also has more torque and can handle more volts (6v vs the 5.5v from the sub-micro DS-09)... They cost the same and I think the DS-12 is more suited for a 450 size heli, its actually a heli tail servo...

I also have the G401b from XMseller, they work the same...

OH yeah, I also tried the GWS HPX Park F servo and even though its analog its a good budget tail servo for someone who is starting and is only doing hovering flips and circuits, I didn't do any super 3d with it (I've only been flying helis for 2 months!)
