Default gyro help for shogun

I have a brand new shogun v2 and havent been able to hover it yet because of the tail. First it was going to the left slowly and I didnt have enough throw to bring it to the right, Now I guess I rev. a setting and it spins to the right real fast and wacks itself on the horiz stabilizer. I have a xp6102 and a gy401 and a mpi mx-52 bb servo. Gear travel on my radio is set to +60% in heading hold. Another thing the red light is solid but when I spin up it blinks two times indicating it lost neutral settings. I dont know what to do next. Lucky I didnt ruin it yet. $500 buck and it wont even hover yet!! My 50 size was never like this!!

Are you sure that revo mixing is OFF in the TX?

Checklist for setting up a 401.

Turn off Heli
Ensure Revo mix is off.
Ensure TX is in HH mode with rudder stick + trim zeroed
Turn on Heli
Wait for 401 to boot and aquire zero setting.
Turn TX to normal mode (none HH)
Hover Heli, adjust trim to hold tail steady. (If not enough trim movement, land and adjust the mechanics then Goto step 1.)
Land Heli,
Turn OFF
Switch TX back to HH mode
Turn heli on, 401 reads zero TR setting.
Go fly.

If its double flashing on throttle up then Karyn nailed it, REVO mixing or tail rotor mixing is on.
