Okay, I get it now. I haven't tried the one I bought yet and had assumed it would work like a heli heading hold gyro. Instead, it's a 'rate mode' gyro that ignores tx input and only reacts to plane movement. Makes perfect sense to me now. Thanks!
Might be fun to try install a flybarless heli gyro though, with HH in all 3-axis.
