what esc are you using for your tail?
what you may have to do is plug in your batt and let the gyro initialize,go full left rudder stick to initiaize the esc.once the tail starts to turn flip the rudder stick left/right 3 times to tell the gyro to go back to center as the rudder stick left hold to initialize the esc will be left in the gyro as a direction change.than all should be good.
make sure you have the "revo mix"turned off in your tx
if all fails plug in your tail esc into the rx (remove the gyro connections) to verify the arming procedure and operation of the tail esc.

I do as ptremb mentioned. I power up, let the gyro initialize, and then hold left rudder until the tail ESC can initialize.

Yes. The tail ESC sees center stick as 0 throttle and arms. Main rotor torque takes care of Left yaw and the motor isn't used.
