Go into the rudder gyro menu and under the "Fine Tuning" section change the "--" to T4. Then wind the Tuning as negative as you can. Now play around with the trim and observe the effect on the resulting rate in "()".

Then be sure to turn off the T4 effect on rudder. In the Function menu change the trim on Ch 4, RUD to "--".

Don't forget to check that the trim is affected by flight modes as you require.

Great idea. Only had my 8FG for a few weeks. I assume this is better than using the dials as this way it is set per model, whereas the dials would be fixed for all models (unless you remembered to change them).
