Got my Robird installed in a 700e. Everything else is proven equipment, so I know it's not that. If it's on the bench and I stir the left stick quickly and have he tail and collective going for a few seconds then stop, the swash jumps up a few degrees and back down. It's almost like it resets the gyro although there is no light show like a full reset. Voltage stays up the whole time.

Can anyone who has one of these try the same test on theirs and see if it does it too? Here is a video.

That's exactly what it does. While on the ground (motionless) if you wag the rudder back and forth to full travel a couple of times it resets the gyros. It's handy, because of course when you carry the heli to the flightline the tail and sometimes swash can get all wonky. That little trick resets it all to zero-zero before you spool up.

So... normal. :)

Thanks. I wish the manual had that. Where did you see it? I feel like there is some manual that exists that I haven't found.

Pretty sure I read it in the Robird forum on Helifreak. Yeah, the manual lacks a bit for sure!

Thanks. Maybe I'll get a chance to get out and fly it tomorrow.
