The travel on the channel will determine it. Usually gyros like this are setup for 0-50 is rate mode and above 50 up to 100 is HH mode. So 50 is actually 0 gain on HH. It's kind of hard to explain and smarter people than I have tutorials on this stuff. I just started lowering the ATV on one end to have the light on but no response. That is my off mode. Then I lowered the other side so that I had about 30% gain in Rate mode. Just a feel type thing, you can raise or lower the gain after you fly it a few times. The Futaba radio I set this up on just crapped out on my in the middle of the CO FPV meet. The soft buttons stopped on two critical menu items, so I can't give you anymore info at the moment.
