Gain adds boost in the corners,as explained on the Keith's web site:

I can't help with setting though,I have not used a KR timer (yet)  :)

The default gain setting is "1" which is little to no gain.  I have mine set on one plane at "4" and another plane at "5".  It's easy to change between flights, but the higher gain setting yields more RPM when going through maneuvers that draw additional current from the motor, so the planes' speed is constant and the lines stay tight all the time, or at least that's what you hope for!!
