Jan 30 2013 by Web business dmerc00: Thanks,
I also made two videos on version 2 of this stab which has some extra features like being able to be turned off remotely.
Jonnysea1986: This is really interesting.
dmerc00: Thanks for watching!
womackke: cool plane nice style
V2 is up next.
JohnVelojet: Very helpful! Thanks muchly for making and posting!
dmerc00: I have ordered the V2 to test but don't have it yet.
Probably will take 3 weeks coming from China.
VTOLKits: They have V2 now with switch for delta mix and switch for v-tail mix, very good and cheap.
dmerc00: It looks like this version is "Rate Mode" only.
pcchip3: On a heli, if they go back to center immediately after you move it by hand, that means "Rate Mode" instead of "Heading Hold" mode
dmerc00: I imagine this gyro system will get a lot of use.
Thanks for posting!
pointnozzleaway: i just put one on my 800mm T6 Texan. used aileron only. super simple and worked awesome !
dmerc00: Yes does the same hunting on my AS3X Hyper Taxi.
When I set it down the hunting stops.
dmerc00: Three! We are keeping HK in business :)
I still need to put one on my Bixler glider and test.
3FLYTE: well it finally came back in stock, so i ordered three :) i will experiment with it on my t28 and some others.
3FLYTE: Gain is almost like what's on my as3x beast umx. it does not bother me in the least when it hunts like that.
GrumpyMadman: Ok, I guess the gain was probably set a little high a the start. Glad to hear it is alright as I imagine the price is right. It is just so hit and miss with some of Hobby Kings stuff.
dmerc00: Later in the video you will see that with adjustment the chatter will stop when the plane is set down. My main complaint with this unit is that it can not be switched on/off remotely with the radio otherwise it's ok.
GrumpyMadman: Looks like a piece of cheap junk to me, nothing but continual servo chatter? If you set the plane down do the servo still continually chatter?
dmerc00: Thank you very much!
cleirig: The three video's make a clear and comprehensive "how to" on the three axis stabilizer.
dmerc00: Sounds great. I will have a look at the thread. I imagine there is some good information there.
dmerc00: Your Welcome. Glad I can help in the understanding of the product.
I am just about done with Part 3 and it should be uploaded to YT soon.
Part 3 is mostly just flight testing at the airfield.
mboiko: I posted these videos under the "OrangeRX 3-Axis Flight Stabilizer" on RCGroups post #380.
mboiko: Thanks for a great review of the OrangeRX Stabilizer. I'm currently in the process of posting links to your review in RCGroups giving you credit as dmerc00.
dmerc00: Thanks T,
Yes this is a new product and I am just working through trying to set it up.
No manual was provided from HK so it is a challenge but fun.
I took the plane for some test flights today and should post the video of that as Part 3 soon.
Tsavah: Interesting review. I believe this is a new product, so I would expect some problems with the units. I really like these reviews since it saves me a lot of time trying to figure out how to share information about how something worked, or didn't. Great show and tell.
dmerc00: That would not be good.
In studying the Reverse/Normal switches I have found an incorrect setting can cause a feedback loop which will force the servo to one side. This can cause the plane to go into a permanent loop or death spiral.
Not saying that is what is happening in your case but it's something to watch out for.
MichaelT1960: I too have one of the OrangeRx stabilizers and mine locks up on the stick movements after it is on for a while (20 - 30 seconds or so). I am sending mine back for a replacement because I know it will lead to a crash:(
I wish this unit was a heading hold unit like the AS3X's are!
dmerc00: A gimbal on what? RC radios have them for the sticks but that is all I know.
my73737373: So this would not work to stableize a gimbal? If not what would work?
Blog Dir: Building the website was not the hard part, but monetizing it was a whole new story. Thanks for the guidance about adsense. I am finally getting some money for my business directory. This is good for both business owners and customers. Keep building quality site and everyone wins.
