Re: finished biulding Raptor 50 but

Thanks Mark
Now that I have read the set up instructions properly, its quite clear that
the gyro is quite a clever little chap, and will do most of the fine turning
for me so long as the mechanics are set pretty close. i.e auto check of
reverse gyro, servo travel in both directions, and whether digital or
standard servo is being used. Plus as you said in hover or forward flight
set the trim for mode 0 or 1. Quite impressed with its set up now :-)
