My Interpretation:
GEAR is set to "GEAR" in the Input Select menu
The H-value for GEAR in the Travel Adjust Menu is set to 80%
This provides an 80% gain to the gyro when the gear switch is in the H position. Something else, when the switch is in the L position.

Is this correct?
I control the gain of the 3 gyros via the throttle channel. Just make sure that all the gain signal wires are connected together and plugged correctly.
I control the gain of the yaw gyro via gear channel. (if you have more than 6ch rx you can use aux2, selectable from tx) I have at both positions of the switch the 80%, witch puts the gyro in heading hold mode and holds ok.
just to confirm left esc and gyro plugged to aux, rear esc and gyro plugged at elevator and right plugged at aileron...
