gyro settings

i just bought a blade msr and a dx6i. i'm pretty new to all of this and just wanted to ask about gyro settings. i think i understand the concept of the gyro, but what is the benefit of setting two gyro settings in the transmitter?

You use a two position switch on the TX to switch the gyro gain. Usually, you set it up to switch between "rate" mode and "heading hold" mode. Most people fly in HH mode, but rate mode can be useful for setting the tail linkage up. You increase the gain until the tail starts to wag in fast forward flight, and then back it off some. Setting up gyros can be quite a frustrating business sometimes!
