Manual GY – Robbe Futaba
This gives HH when the switch is up. Without a doubt, the GY gyro with or servo is one of the best tail rotor stabilization systems produced to date.
Adjust the tail rotor linkage until the model hovers with the tail in trim. Connect the one with 3 to the rudder channel of the receiver labeled ‘Rudd’. Adjust the guides to acheive the least resistance. My most popular eBook! The instructions with most gyros say to use a much longer distance however I found it to work best at around 13mm.
If not, then flip the reverse switch located on the top of the gyro. Notice that the values are different, you do not need as much to rotate the helicopter to the left because it is going ‘with’ the torque in that direction.
Also as with all heading hold gyros you have to wait for the gyro to initialize after power up before you can move the helicopter. After many years, the Futaba GY Gyro used to be the bench mark gyro that all others were judged. Once you are finished you can snap the link on the ball. Wait 4 seconds for the gyro to initialize. This will make the nose of the helicopter rotate to the right.
Next disconnect the rudder link from the servo. Remember that a few hundred rpm drop on the head is several hundred rpm drop on the tail. If you didn’t have a programmable mmanual radio that you can program in different ATV values for the gain settings, the Futaba GY will not work for you — there are no gain or mode selection options on the gyro case.
Futaba GY Gyro How-to
A wheel with a hole drilled for the ball joint is preferred over a manuap arm because of greater rigidity. As you can see in the picture to the left, I mounted it with the cords coming out toward the back of the helicopter. On my gy that came with the servo I have found 84 is what it took. The GY mamual the progress and that alone offered some nice value if you didn’t want to have to purchase another gyro for your next bird.
My RC Helicopter eBooks are here to help you with those exact problems. The servo needs to rotate clockwise. 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 Rotate the helicopter so the nose goes to the left and watch the rudder servo.
Mount the Gyro on the back plate behind the main shaft. The model should now hover with no drift. The helicopter model and engine must be running smoothly. Hold the tail rotor stick full right and pull the control rod all the way forward. Lets take a look at this latest “SAFE” inspired version to help you decide if it’s worth adding to the….
I also use a JR Ball link resizing tool mnaual remove unecessary resistance from the ball links.
Quick Start Guide for the GY401
Do not use the rudder ATV for this purpose. Now that you have the gyro initialized correctly, flip the GEAR switch.
The large range of heli size usage and outstanding performance is why the GY outsold every other performance gyro on the market.
If you are not using a stock tail slider then use the other technique. Proper trim can and should be obtained mechanically by adjusting the tail rotor pushrod.
The first thing to do is make the link slide as free as possible.
One direction will set the gain value for heading hold and the other will be for standard rate. Confirm that no sub-trim or ATV is present in the transmitter in any flight condition on the rudder channel. Once the center of the ball link matches with the center of the ball and you have the 4. Set the DIP switch on the gyro for digital servo, assuming the or is installed.
The RPM’s should be to for 3D flight. Tail wags only right after a pirouette, or anytime I move the tail then stop. Do not disturb the rudder. On other gyros I would prefer to have Normal flight mode use standard rate because the Manul mode would have a kinda jerky non-fluid motion when doing ground maneuvers such as slow piroueting circles.
