Default Tail spin

I have the t-rex450 hde. Im using the dx6 with the align rce 500x gyro. I it's set up not using the channel 5 gain. Because later I will use that for retract (alot later). When I throttle up it start to spin to the left, (tail to the rigth front to the left) I can set the tail fins close to the tail case which if Im correct it should spin to the right. Close to the tail case right close to the fins left. I've center the servo have the gyro gain set in the center what am I doing wrong.

Can be a broken drive belt gear, I had the front belt gear break. It still spins the tail but can slip as the top of the gear broke and the whole gear was slipping on the shaft. Some CA fixed it.
Hold head and try rotating the tail to see if it slips.

Ok, with out the rotor spining grab your heli by the landing gear and swing the tail back and forth. You should see the tail rotor servo pushing the blades toward the direction of the swing. If you don't.... your gyro is screwed up. I had the telebee one "exectly the same" and it didn't work right out of the box. fiddled with it for weeks and it never did anything. I'm wondering if you got the same problem.

I found the problem it was the tail gear had broken. Went to check the belt and notice the top of the gear missing. Going to replace to day. Thanks for the help.
