I'm intrigued. So far they've been THE easiest to set up and use of ANY
gyro I've ever played with.

Let me tell you how my "system" is set up. First of all I don't use the
highest speed servo's out there. The one on my Futura is a JR 4000 Super
Servo (strong, but not particularly quick in comparison to the 2700 and
the 8700). The one on my Space Baron/Enforcer is a SuperTec, which is
quick but not blistering. Servo arm length on both is 15mm from servo
centre to ball link centre. Gain in both non heading hold and HH is 95%
on the Futura (can't remember what it is in the Space, but it's
similar). Not a TRACE of a wag and neither of these heli's will swap
ends no matter how hard I try, and some of the "situations" I get my
heli's in put a bit of a strain on the tail.

I've only ever LOOKED at the programming on the PC Jamie, I've never
changed anything and neither has anyone else at our field. No-one's had
an ounce of trouble, once the gyro's been set up properly. I'm not
saying you DON'T set it up properly, but it's a possibility. Some of the
heli's I've done the set up procedure on have been "done" before
>FWIW, I am using a 2700g,
Well your problem shouldn't be coming from the servo, but you never
know. Have you tried a different (maybe a slower) one?
I originally used NHP tails on the Futura at 92mm, with no problem, (a
consideration??) but I lent them to another flyer and they died. He
replaced them with a pair of MS tails at 105(ish) and I could crank up
the gain a little to it's present 95%. What heli are you flying btw?

Yeah, me, but before you REALLY decide to bin it, let CSM have a look at
it. It could be a faulty unit after all.
