Gyro trouble please can someone please help me???


I have recently put a csm hlg200 hh gyro in my hummingbird. I have installed in the front, the gyro is a cased version. The label on the gyro is faceing the side as if you were looking at the heli from the side. The only problem is when i apply throttle for take off the tail just spins that fast that it just spins around in circles. Does anybody know how i stop this.

I have also added the 370 motor, head mod and swashplate from heilhobby.

I know its probably a user error i just dont know how to fix it or were to start???

thanks alot

Try holding the rudder stick full left when starting. On JR radios you will need to reverse rudder channel and do the same.

thanks for the reply, i'am currently using the Gws transmitter that it came with.

Why do you hold the left stick all the way to the left when connecting power or taking off????

First plug everything in. Wait 2 seconda and then push the Rudder stick full left and hold it for 3 seconds. Let go and everything should work This is what I have to do on my Futaba Gy240 gyro.

i thought a hh gyro would be holding the heading all the way through the throttle range? or is the effect not large enough during idle for the gyro to detect? by idle i mean throttle is not large enough to lift
