Default DX8 not putting gyro into headlock mode?

Hi all, I just replaced the DX6i transmitter that I had been using to fly my T-rex 500 with a DX8. All the new setups seem ok except I can't seem to get my gyro into headlock mode no matter how high I dial up the gyro gain - as in even 100% seems to make no difference and the gyro remains in rate mode, with the slider returning to center after every left/right rudder input. Am I missing something really obvious?

Typically postive numbers are for HH and negative for rate. Since you gone al the way to 100% try using some negative numbers to see if it changes.

Also, are you sure you have the channels mapped corectly? Maybe you can set it all the way to 100% because it's not actually changing the gyro.
