Default Huey Gyro Adjust

Hiya,
Just got Huey - and like most, I have nasty tailwag right out of the box - manual says decrease gain on gyro by rotating pot on gyro counter clockwise - there is a hole on the right side of the body to get at it - for the life of me, I cannot see into that hole to see if it's a philips screw or flathead or what? I don't want to take the body off to make a simple adjustment - anybody done it?

Thanks!

Near the receiver you have a loose yellow wire just plug the yellow wire into the receiver and after that you can ajust your gain with your transmitter with the top right knob. The pot on the gyro is useless after plug the yellow wire. And make sure to keep your knob between 50% and 100% to be in HH mode!


There's a tread about that with nice video!

I'd like to adjust the gyro using the pot as described in the manual - only so I don't have to remove the body which requires un-soldering the tail motor. I can see the little hole in the body to get at the gyro but can't seem to get a twist with a screwdriver. Impossible to see in the hole to tell - is it a small Philips?

It's driving me crazy.

Small flat screwdriver
