Reflex XTR gyro setup with Futaba T8UHFS (FF8) help?

Can anyone give me some pointers on how to set up the gyro gain properly
with Reflex XTR on my Futaba T8UHFS (FF8) controller?

I want to use switch F, which I've set in the radio, and set the ATV gains
to their fullest extents (which it only lets me set to 30% - 100%). Then
I've set Gyro Up to 100% and Down to 0% in the controller's advanced menu.

However, I can't get the Reflex gyro response to behave other than in
heading hold. Also, where should I set the channel 5 (gyro) to 50% so that
Reflex calibrates it properly?

This all seems a little more complicated than it should be.

(Plus I wish there was a way of disabling Reflex's auto-control setup
everytime I want to assign channels..)

This is how I have my FF8 set up with XTR.

Gyro set to channel 5 as you have done.
Leave the ATVs for channel 5 at 0% and 100%.
Assign Switch F to channel 5 as you have done.

On the radio advanced menu (i.e. press the bottom two buttons together)
Scroll to GYRO and check the following settings Up = 100%, Down = 100% and
SW-F

On XTR disply the select the channel display (F8) and check the operation of
Switch F

Operating it should toggle between -100% and +100% on the display. This
won't be exact depending on calibration, but should be somewhere near.

Now on the radio set the GYRO parameters as desired - I use Down = 20% (i.e
80% rate) and Up = 80% (i.e. 80% rate).

Check this has an effect on the channel display.

Calibration - you can't centre channel 5 so don't bother - you are only
interested in one position being +100% and the other being -100%.

Cheers,

Nigel

(sorry Si, but I'm gonna hijack part of your thread..heheh)
Can't help ya, but was wondering if anyone's got a good starting point
for Reflex and the 9CHFS radio - I'm thinking Relfex is going to be my
next sim purchase...

Thx..
