Topics in Installation & setup

Topic Question Answer
2 Is it necessary to setup the tail with 8deg pitch in rate mode? You only need the 8deg adjustment if you want to run your Spartan gyro in rate mode. In AVCS mode Spartan gyros work equally well whether the...
42 Do I still have to bind my with rudder stick off centre or the gyro gain low? This topic affects users of Spektrum / JR 2.4GHz systems only. The bind trick is used to postpone gyro initialisation until the receiver has first...
50 The heli piros very quickly at full stick but with the stick 1/2 over the tail feels sluggish. Based on expert pilot feedback our gyros have build in rudder exponential in order to provide precise control near mid-stick and fast rotation rates...
68 Can I just set 145% for each endpoint and then use my radio's rudder travel adjust to fine-tune the... Whilst the gyro operates in AVCS mode the tail pitch is entirely controlled by the gyro. In this mode the pilot’s rudder inputs become a...
66 Can I reset the gyro to factory defaults without the Flash-Link? Sorry no. The advanced gyro parameters can only be modified and can only be reset to the factory defaults using the Flash-Link or Blue-Link interface.
74 How does the bind plug setup work? This feature is available only in firmware version 2.00 and higher. Your transmitter must be switched on and the gyro connected to the receiver while...
80 At what distance should I place the servo ball link? The best practice is to first try the advice in your helicopter's assembly manual. We recommend that you initially place the servo ball link at the...
81 Do you recommend to fit the gyro at the rear or front tray? Both locations should work. Extensive advice on the best installation practices is given in your gyro's user guide.  
92 Are the Stop Gain settings reversed when the gyro is mounted upside down? Are they reversed if the... Clockwise and counter clockwise refer to the direction of rotation when the gyro's label is facing towards the main rotor. If you mount the gyro with...
22 How do I setup my gyro for eye blurring piros? Whilst the gyro operates in AVCS mode the tail pitch is entirely controlled by the gyro. In this mode the pilotís rudder inputs become a command for...
21 Difficulties entering setup mode when using Spektrum and 2.4GHz JR radios. Please consider updating your gyro to the latest firmware and use an external setup button or bind plug as detailed in [topic 74]. If you prefer to...
17 My ds760 won't enter servo selection mode. If your gyro runs firmware version 2.00 or newer please consider using an external setup button or bind plug as detailed in [topic 74]. If you...
3 Is the gain of the tail gyro too low? The optimal gain value is a function of several parameters including rotor speed, tail rotor diameter, tail blade efficiency, servo arm length, servo...
4 Do I need to use the supplied metal plate? The supplied metal plate is used to increase the gyro mass which in general provides better vibration attenuation. • Electric helicopters have...
5 I fly with reverse tail. How should I setup gyro reversing? If you use reverse tail (meaning that with left rudder stick the helicopter yaws clockwise) while configuring your Spartan gyro reversing you need to...
9 The helicopter pirouettes too slow. My old gyro was more responsive. Based on expert pilot feedback our gyros are designed to provide precise control near mid-stick and fast rotation rates at full stick. It may take a...
11 The tail stops too hard and I fear it may strip the tail gears. Lower the Deceleration Profile adjustment via the PC, PDA or detachable LCD to match the mechanical capabilities of your helicopter. You may also...
13 Do the servo endpoints need to be equal? No, and this is why our gyros provide independent endpoint adjustment for each end. You should however try to avoid extreme difference (greater than...
14 I am unable to setup the endpoints and gain as the user guide suggests. The user guide provides general guidance on the preferred conditions for using our gyros. In practice design variations between helicopters may...
16 My ds760 won't enter configuration mode. If your gyro run firmware version 2.00 or newer please consider using an external setup button or bind plug as detailed in [topic 74]. If you prefer...
123 My gyro has built in -50% exponential. At the same time my transmitter (Spektrum DX7) has -25%... Both exponential functions are effective, each shaping the rudder signal as is passes through. The -% on the Quark means less sensitive whilst -% on...
