Default ZYX-S collective problem

Hi all,

Having just bought the Tarot gyro decided today to start programming it, set up Tx and satilite receiver as per instructions, then moved on to the monitor stage, had to reverse
thro, aile, elev and rudd to get the coloured bars to follow the stick movement.

Next set the install, servo and swashplate type, then onto servo reverse, got all the cyclics
to move in the correct direction but the collective moved the wrong way. The only way i can
correct this is to reverse the pitch, but then the coloured bar in the monitor goes the wrong way.

Have checked and double checked that i have the servos correctly plugged into gyro i'm
now at a loss how to fix this, hope you guys can help.

Don't worry about the monitor. Set up the channel reversals such that the swashplate moves correctly and you're done.
