Maanual many years, the Futaba GY Gyro used to be the bench mark gyro that all others were judged. The helicopter model and engine must be running smoothly. Vibration is the cause of low gain settings.

It has been perfectly matched to operate with the GY in fast digital mode. The ball on the rudder servo is too far away from the center. If not, then flip the reverse switch located on the top of the gyro. If you the tail wags in a hover then decrease maanual gain.

It should move the servo clockwise which thereby should pull the rudder control link forward.

Futaba GY Gyro How-to

The gyro channel reverse setting in the radio can be used if you want the switch in the opposite direction it currently is in just depends on manuwl you want the switch up or down all the time. Check the servo direction.


Step by step setup: My most popular eBook! On other gyros I would prefer to have Normal flight mode use standard rate because the HH mode would have a kinda jerky non-fluid motion when doing ground maneuvers such as slow piroueting circles. This value will yield a mild pirouette rate that can then be increased to suit the taste of the pilot. Connect the one with 3 to the rudder channel of the receiver labeled ‘Rudd’.

The first thing to do is make the link slide as free as possible. It is said that copying someone or something is the highest form of flattery; guess that is why gu401 was a cheap GY clone hitting the market almost every month back then. My RC Helicopter eBooks are here to help you with those exact problems.

The tail rotor servo is plugged into the output lead from the gyro. The gain select lead is plugged into any unoccupied slot in the receiver that has a corresponding switched channel on the transmitter. With the GY there is gt401 little reason to use standard rate mode.

The Futaba GY401 Gyro

The best position for tail centering is to adjust the rudder link so that you have 4. This servo boasts a hy401 of 0. The GY worked well in almost every single rotor bird out there from size electrics up to 52cc gas or MW54 powered turbine monsters with rotor diameters approaching 2 meters. Without a doubt, the GY gyro with or mxnual is one of the best tail rotor stabilization systems produced to date.

Using the limit trimmer pot on the gyro, adjust the tail rotor travel as needed for no binding at extremes of throw. The “direction” DIP switch is set such amnual movement of the nose of the model to the left counter clockwise causes the gyro to supply a right tail rotor command to the servo.

One side controls heading hold gain; the other side controls rate gain.

Observing the ATV screen in the radio for the gain select channel will allow the user to determine which is which. It should be solid in AVCS mode. Inhibit all preprogrammed gyro software in the transmitter.

Ask 5 RC helicopter enthusiasts what the best solid state heading lock gyro was when they first came out, and 4 of them will likely say the GY Yes, the tape that comes with the gyro is not very cushiony, but that’s the way it needs to be.

A higher value will make the heli pirouette faster and a lower value will make the tail slower. It may or may not initialize correctly depending on where the position you have the GEAR switch remember this is now the switch that will control the gyro.
