Thanks for the buddy code, I just got two more for $88 .... I just hope they really are the Tarot box without the label.

Thanks for that buddy code, WOW CHEAP

I'm loving this on my T-Rex 250 but at that price I'm thinking of getting one just to try in a plane. Horizon Hobby's coming out with some micro planes with a 3 axis why not try this in a larger plane? Should make hovering a lot easier.

The tarot programming boxes are showing up on ebay over here in the UK

From some of the comments on the HK page it seems that the tarot programming boxes are working with the HK ZXY, so that should confirm that the HK is the tarot with a different sticker?

I'm trying to level my swashplate and I have a problem. To level the swash at mid stick, you have to go to setting servo trim. Where do you go to level the swash at each end of the pitch range?

I wonder if the Hobbyking ZYX will work with the Tarot program box? Having the same name might mean yes, but so far all of the other program boxes are locked to work with their gyros only.

Supposedly you don't have to set the swash to level other than at mid stick, with a 3 axis gyro, but I'm two minds about this. Basically there is nothing you can do, except to use better servos that have more even travel.

I think I recall you can move you collective during the servo trim step. I'll try it at home when I get there, but I think you can as long as you have your collective range available on throttle hold.

Thanks for the reply guys. I do know that when powering up, you hold left or right ail or left or right rudder to get into setup mode. This will disable the gyro itself so you can set up the pitch range with the gyro moving around on you.

I have a 450 with the tarot system also and I don't think I have this problem. Maybe it's the servos that I'm using. I have hs65 on the 450 and hxt900 on my 250.

If I can't set up my end point on individual servos then I'll leave and see if it will fly.

The tarot 250 head has alot of play in it, along the spindle and up and down if you know what I mean.

I saw on Ebay the programer for 35.98 free shipping. From Force Hobby. I'm wondering if I should get that one or wait for something cheaper/better? Like updated

Loving this setup ... I still can't get over the price of this 3-Axis gyro ... Life is good.
