If you put the gyro on another helicopter and have the same problem then you'll need to replace it. I've tried repairing these in my lab but just not worth the effort. Good luck

Yes it does sound like the gyro is bad. I had this happen to one of mine also and I sent it to Futaba and they replaced it for me for free. I recomend that you do the same thing and send it in to Futaba. If you are moving the nose by hand and the servo is not doing any thing that means that it is not responding. I would also recomend you sign up with RunRyder.com It is a world wide helly site and people there will be able to help you out if you are trying to set the heli up for the first time. You also might find someone in your area to fly with. I am on there myself my name there is Jon Y here are my pictures on the link below.

It sounds like you just got it. Be sure your battery is fully charged. Its probably a "Lipo / ?". They put out very high current but drain quickly. On the larger copters, some functions will work partially or stop completely before other functions when they are low on charge. If its RTF out of the box and you just got, give the battery at least a 3 hour charge and try it again. If that doesn't work then, I would take it back for a replacement. If its not new and we need to trouble shoot, I have a lot of writing to look forward to. I fly an AH-64 attack chopper and a dual tower sky crane. I just finished repairing my crashed sky crane this morning. No more plastic for me. Let me know when you are ready. Today or whenever. We will get it done. Also. you will need a volt meter, small diameter Philips screw driver and a logic probe would be easiest to use if we need to check any PC boards. Good luck with the battery! I'm here if not. Roger
