Has my gyro gone bad?

I have a JR G410T. I have had this for about 3 months and it worked fine, one day the heading hold stopped working, (the Heli would just spin in circles) so I switched the heading hold slider off then back on again and it worked.

I recently switched to a DX7 radio. I got it set up and went to test it out. The Heli will hold as I'm powering up the throttle and just when the heli gets to the point where it is about to lift off it seems like the gyro heading hold stops working and the heli starts to spin.

I went ahead and ran a new set up with the gyro like the manual says but still no good.

I think it's odd that the heading hold will work until I get to about 1/2 throttle then boom no hold.

Sounds like you need to check and reset the mechanical center. You want about 10 of pitch on the tail blades so that they are pushing the tail left (nose right) when the gyro is in rate mode and the rudder stick is centered.
